Kevin O’Keefe: Who am I talking with?
Tom Boyle: Tom Boyle here, one of the co-founders of TrustBooks.
Kevin O’Keefe: What does TrustBooks do?
Tom Boyle: We’re helping attorneys easily manage their trust account, while staying in compliance with their state bar.
Kevin O’Keefe: When did this all start yet?
Tom Boyle: Really, the conception was my conception. I’m a CPA and had a CPA practice, and was working almost exclusively with law firms and one of the very first questions you get when you go into pitch your service to a law firm, and you’re an accountant, is to say, do you know, trust accounting? So I had to come back with a real strong “absolutely.” Which led to becoming an expert like that. And I was using the products that exist that most small law firms use: Quickbooks, Excel. I was actually using both, to try and get a complete picture for the trust account, and just thought there’s gotta be something better. This is a pain point. These products aren’t built for trust accounting. And so that was the start, that was the conception of TrustBooks.
