Pros
I love the ease and ability to have our clients pay their invoices to us online and how secure it is.
The customer service is great. They are super responsive and quickly take care of things.
LawPay makes it super easy for us to take card payments. It replaced PayPal, which isn't suited to the kind of accounting we have.
Cons
The fees are very high and I hate that they send the statements in the mail and they are not accessible online.
I'm sure that would violate some privacy law, though, so it's understandable but we still have to fill this part out.
The complication is that when I do reconciliation in QuickBooks my bank account always shows a transaction I have to remember to ignore because I had to record it as two transactions.

Perfect solution for credit card billing for lawyers

Reviewed 6 years ago

Overall my experience with LawPay has been great.

Pros

LawPay is very easy to use, I always just use the QuickBill feature which allows me to quickly email a bill to a client. I can resend the bill and edit it afterwards if needed. My law firm is fully digital, so LawPay is great, I never send out paper bills. It also is great for complying with ethical rules related to trust accounts and credit card billing - almost all of my credit card bills are processed for up front payments into trust.

Cons

They have not yet switched to paperless monthly statements, so those come in the mail. I'd prefer paperless. Also, if you process a payment and issue a refund the same day, it will simply show up as a single transaction for the sum of the two - this complicates accounting, for me, in QuickBooks, which cannot handle a deposit and a withdrawal from an account in a single transaction. The complication is that when I do reconciliation in QuickBooks my bank account always shows a transaction I have to remember to ignore because I had to record it as two transactions.

A good option for law firms, but there is room for improvement

Reviewed 2 years ago

The experience has been good, but it could be improved by providing additional features and integrations offered by most non-legal focused payment solutions.

Pros

It was fairly easy to set up an account, after filling out the necessary paperwork. The fees are decent. Allows for easy compliance with trust accounting rules. When support was required, I found LawPay to be responsive and easy to deal with.

Cons

When comparing LawPay with something like Stripe, it's clear that LawPay was built for lawyers. It has all of the features a lawyer would expect. Unfortunately, it's missing many of the features a regular business would expect, like extensive integrations through an API. This makes LawPay much less flexible than non-legal specific options. For example, if you want to integrate with things like Calendly, Acuity Scheduling, Airtable, etc., you will need to use something else. There is no Zapier or Integromat integration, which is becoming more important these days. The reports are alright, but the interface is not as intuitive as I would like.

Works great but they sneak the extra cost of using Affinipay into the process.

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Easy to accept payments by bank transfers or credit cards. Debit cards work but are a challenge for high value transactions.

Cons

The sneaky added cost of Affinipay. Lawpay is competitive in cost, until you consider the added cost of Affinipay that is billed monthly.

It works just fine, we can pass along some of the fees to the clients, hard to know exactly what we are paying. No different than other cc processing companies, but compliant.

Pros

I like that it is compliant with legal ethical rules.

Cons

I don't like that I don't know exactly what I am paying for fees.

LawPay is WONDERFUL

Reviewed 4 months ago

Love the convenience of it and the friendly staff.

Pros

I love the convenience for our clients to easily make payments!

Cons

The e-check function. We don't find out until almost a week if the check bounced. When this happens we have to undo bank transfers and payments in Leap.
