A love of numbers, details and technology made opening a business as a bookkeeper a no-brainer for Mary McPadden. Since founding Balanced Billing in Phoenix in 2008, she's become known as much for her ability to keep clean books as for her ability to make the bookkeeping and accounting processes easier for law firms and other small businesses. Mary is also considered THE Arizona IOLTA Rules Expert, helping lawyers and attorneys maintain compliance with law firm trust accounting rules.

If you're an attorney in private practice or a small business owner—and you've been in business awhile—you know your books have to be done regularly. And done right.

Otherwise you don't have an accurate idea of your monthly expenses and revenues. So you could be losing money without even knowing it! And you're going to have a huge amount of work to do (and stress to deal with) come tax time or if you get audited.

If you're a lawyer, you also know your books could be reviewed by the State Bar Foundation through a compliance examination. You can ensure you pass that exam, which requires adherence to the Arizona IOLTA rules, with a Pre-Audit Audit of your trust account record keeping practices from me, THE Arizona IOLTA Rules Expert. Because the last thing you want is to be up late at night trying to make sure you're books are right.

The reality is, you didn't open your business or become a lawyer to do the books. So how to get your bookkeeping done—and done right—when you have a million other tasks on your to-do list?

The best, and easiest, way is to hire a professional bookkeeping service you can trust.

If you're an attorney practicing in Arizona, it only makes sense to hire a bookkeeper who specializes in IOLTA rules and knows the manual inside and out.


Ensure you pass the Arizona State Bar IOLTA compliance exam with a Pre-Audit Audit of your trust account record keeping practices.

With Balanced Billing you get all that and more including:
  • An experienced bookkeeper who stays on top of ever-changing tax rules and regulations
  • Consulting for lawyers, attorneys and law firms from an IOLTA Rules expert so you can feel confident your books are audit ready
  • Assistance with developing and/or organizing accounting and automation procedures so systems run smoothly and accurately
  • Experience with Timeslips and QuickBooks
  • Basic bookkeeping services (Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Bank reconciliation, etc.) and monthly financial reports (Income Statement, P and L, Balance Sheet) so you always know where you stand
  • A watchful eye looking out for potential fraud or theft from vendors and staff
  • A bookkeeping specialist who works directly with your CPA at tax time so you have fewer headaches—and lower tax return preparation fees
  • A knowledgeable independent consultant who looks at the whole picture and offers suggestions to improve processes and reduce costs
Bottom line… I look at the whole picture, not just the books, so you can rest easy knowing your bookkeeping—and your business financials—are always in order.

Balanced Billing was contracted to my firm to assist with a sizable reorganization of our accounting processes. Mary McPadden handled the massive amounts of paper that had accumulated due to recent staff turnover and worked diligently to get our QuickBooks program properly set up to show accurate data.

Mary's expertise in both QuickBooks and Timeslips has helped my firm save money. By careful scrutiny of our accounts payable and keeping well-defined, accurate records of the receivables, we save money each month. I recommend Mary and Balanced Billing for precise, dependable and honest bookkeeping services."
