Pay Down the Most Expensive Debt First

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Copyright  Images_of_Money via FlickrAs we process applications from law firms, it is not at all unusual to see a firm or partner that has $20,000 of cash in the bank and at the same time is carrying a $20,000 balance on multiple credit cards.

Obviously in a situation like that there is an opportunity to eliminate a lot of interest expense by simply paying off some credit cards rather have them sit out there with $20,000 on them for another year at 18 percent (or even higher).

If you have excess cash at the end of the month, review any outstanding debt you have and consider paying some of it down.

You can learn more about this and other law firm finance topics in my book, How David Beats Goliath – Access to Capital for Contingent-Fee Law Firms.
