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.

A nice service.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Very convenient and easy to use. I get notified whenever a client runs a charge, and I can look on the billing software page, as well as the LawPage site, and see the status. It works well with Clio, our billing software, and even marks the invoice as paid once the charge is finalized.

Pros

We had a problem with our credit card processor, which prompted us to switch. We use Clio for billing so LawPay was the obvious choice. IT IS SO NICE. First of all, since I'm working at home due to COVID, and use wifi, I did not have an internet source to plug into, which our former machine required. With LawPay, I can process credit card payments online and it goes directly into the firm's bank account, it's that easy. Plus, I can send invoices to our clients with a link they can use to run their own credit card charges to pay their invoice. Although there is training offered, it really took no training for me to start using it.

Cons

I really haven't used it for that long, so right now I'd say nothing!

Very Easy to Learn to Use and Use!

Reviewed 4 years ago

LawPay solved our problem by reducing credit card fees and by providing a simple method of requesting payment or trust account replenishment from our clients.

Pros

What I like most about this software is it is an uncomplicated way to send payment links to clients and to take in-office payments or payments by phone. The big plus is the lower credit card fees than what we were paying through MyCase. I LOVE the Dashboard feature which allows me to view who has paid without having to click around the site to find out. The software doesn't contain a bunch of useless features. It helps me accomplish exactly what I need to.

Cons

One of the Cons would be the ability to generate a detailed invoice. There are many times when I need to create an invoice for a potential new client or for just a consult. I don't have a case created I just need an invoice.

Pretty Good

Reviewed 4 years ago

It is really easy to use and very self explanatory. We dont get charged much and never have an issue with it.

Pros

It is very easy to use and is connected to our Cosmolex! So when we send a client an email with their invoice, they click the link and just have to enter their card number and address. Its great!

Cons

It does not let you send the invoice to more than one person at a time. We often have more than one client for the same matter and like them to all know we need to be paid.

Overall our experience has been positive with LawPay. We are happy with their product.

Pros

What we like the most about LawPay is the ease of use for the clients. They can set up reoccurring payments, they can pay their bill monthly - very client friendly.

Cons

There really have not been any cons thus far. The only downside is sometimes client place funds in the wrong account.

LawPay an end to your collections and reporting issues!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Wonderful! It was super easy to train on, their staff is always available for any questions and their reports are life saving!

Pros

I love how LawPay allows for refunds of a lesser amount than the full payment! Sometimes our consults aren’t as long as they are scheduled and clients love getting that refund in a timely manner! Lawpay allows for the swift and easy process of refunds!

Cons

Really nothing, it’s very effective, user friendly and their staff is always available by phone email or chat!

Great product for lawyers

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

It is simple. It integrates with my practice management software and syncs with quickbook. The dashboard makes it easy to see transactions and payment requests. There are various ways to collect payment such as sending a secure link, swiping a card in the office, or manually entering the details.

Cons

It is a bit pricey. But I understand that lawyers have an ally with ungrateful client chargebacks. I haven't had to test that yet, but I'm willing to pay a little more for a company that understands the unique issues that lawyers face.

Finally! Payment System that understands Law Practice

Reviewed 4 years ago

Checks by mail simply isn't practical and valuable time can be lost while waiting on payment. LawPay speeds things up and helps accommodate the most common form of payment- cards.

Pros

Just started (so I may be in the honeymoon stage) but it's very easy to operate and generates links and lander pages to address payments. Can be customized for trust/operating deposits. And enables transactions when checks aren't practical. Also helps with third party payors immensely.

Cons

I haven't found anything yet, but the invoice generation looks like it has a bit of learning curve. I may need to adjust my methods to line up more with it. Do wish the only fees were transactional instead of base plus, but still a great tool.

Highly Recommend LawPay to other Small Firms

Reviewed a year ago

Highly recommend LawPay for simple, straightforward billing.

Pros

The necessity of electronic payments is the main reason I obtained LawPay for my firm; we needed an electronic payment processing system that was secure and easy to use, as well as the ability to forward payment links to clients. I'd estimate more than half of our clients pay electronically now, where before LawPay our office was only using paper currency.This app absolutely is better than Square or the other small business electronic payment processing apps on the market. I also love that the processing fees are passed on to the client in a clear fashion; as a small business it would be difficult to cover those fees especially on some of these large trust deposits that might end up being partially refunded.

Cons

Lawpay could really use a recurring billing feature that keeps up with client billing for us. By that I mean a feature where, if we send out a bill and it is not paid or not paid in full, LawPay software will automatically resend the bill periodically to the Client until paid in full. Currently we do it manually or set up reminders in MyCase, which doesn't record its own reminders sent out.

Agrxis Review on LawPay

Reviewed a year ago

I've had excellent results generally with LawPay. LawPay has given me a secure and effective payment processing system that has tremendously streamlined my financial operations as a legal professional. The platform's user-friendly design and smooth connection with my current systems have made managing and reconciling payments exceedingly straightforward. I like LawPay's dedication to data security and PCI compliance because it gives me confidence that the private information of my clients is well-protected. An additional benefit that has allowed me to accept payments without paying exorbitant costs is LawPay's competitive processing rates. The team has also been courteous and knowledgable whenever they responded, despite sporadic delays in customer assistance.

Pros

The smooth and secure payment processing experience LawPay provides is what I liked most about it, and I am very happy with it. As a lawyer, I appreciate LawPay's ease of use and dependability when it comes to processing client payments. I have saved a significant amount of time and work by managing and reconciling payments with ease thanks to the platform's connection with my current systems. Additionally, I feel secure knowing that my clients' private financial information is well-protected because to LawPay's dedication to data security and PCI compliance. Another significant benefit is the affordable processing rates provided by LawPay, which enable me to accept debit and credit card payments without paying exorbitant costs.

Cons

Even though I am typically happy with LawPay, I would have to say that the customer service experience was the least enjoyable. In a few cases, I ran into delays in receiving a response to my questions or finding a solution. These delays can be annoying at times as someone who values effective and timely customer service. However, I must point out that the support staff was friendly and knowledgable once I did get a response.

Making business less busy

Reviewed 4 months ago
Pros

Hours were spent recording and calculating bills and payments and remaining balances and sending clients reports, before. So much time has been freed up for our firm by using LawPay. Plus, the fact that we can now accept any form of payment a client may possibly need is incredibly valuable.

Cons

The credit card processor device has not been working every time lately and we have to type in all of the card information and billing adress. this takes a while when the client is standing in front of you, waiting.

Overall Love LawPay, 1 Fix

Reviewed 5 months ago

Please help Farrar Law Firm get this 3% processing fee automatically added to all payments made through LawPay. Overall LawPay is wonderful.

Pros

The convenience, the streamlined program allows us to quickly send invoices out for replenishment retainers, I can take payment during client meetings with ease. I'm able to access historical data with no problems. Overall every firm should offer LawPay.

Cons

My only criticism is that LawPay does not automatically add the 3% fee for Farrar Law Firm. I have personally utilized LawPay at multiple firms and this was included at those offices. It is currently up to the staff or the client to figure out what the 3% is and add it up, which has caused problems for us in the past when client's forget and simply pay the figure. Our firm has lost money having to forfeit that 3% because our client didn't know any better or we didn't have a chance to inform them prior to them making the payment.

Lawyers: STOP paying an arm and leg for processing fees.

Reviewed 3 years ago

When we started our law firm we knew that we had to have a way of taking electronic payments. Other services had extremely high fees and in our industry, passing those along to the client can be seen as "tacky". LawPay gives us the ability to take electronic payments at a more reasonable fee.

Pros

The integrations with Clio, our practice management software are a huge pro to LawPay as well as LawPay's competitive processing fees with the legal payments processing industry.

Cons

Even though processing fees for LawPay are lower relative to other services, they still cut a great deal into our larger retainers. I would love for LawPay to have a tiered fee structure where the more transactions you process the lower your fee percentage. This would encourage firms like ours to push ALL transactions through LawPay instead of first trying to get paid by cash or check and using electronic payments as a less preferred option.

My experience with LawPay

Reviewed 5 months ago

It has been a very helpful tool in making collections much faster and smoother for our firm. It is 100% better than using the old school credit card machines, and this gives our clients the ability to do this on their own and at their convenience, whether our firm is open or not.

Pros

It is very quick and easy to take a payment from a client. It is very easy so send them a direct link to pay and easy to link to our website to make a payment and direct them there to complete the process.

Cons

Some clients complain about the limits of making echeck payments. It is a bit complicated how the payments are batched together from the credit card companies when they hit our bank, but I don't think LawPay can control that much, if at all.

Efficient, intuitive credit card processing.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Excellent. The extra time for transferring funds is offset by the integration with out law firm management software and the elimination of extra processing.

Pros

Credit card processing is intuitive. This is especially helpful for the staff that only do occasional entries. Credit Card processing is integrated with the law management software, hence, the credit card processing and the recording to the client account is accomplished in one transaction.

Cons

It takes 48 hours to get the funds into our bank account. This is an extra 24 hours over our previous processor.

If you use it right can make it very easy to accept payment

Reviewed 5 years ago

Customer payments. It is a great solution if your business is sending out invoices. The fees that they take whether debt or credit are pretty high.

Pros

The dashboard is good and intuitive. Easy to send out bills and invoices. The payment links are easy to follow and probably the best feature of LawPay.

Cons

The canned emails are not great. You need to re-write with your own specific message or better yet copy the link and send it in an email or as a link in your invoices. The fees are very high and I hate that they send the statements in the mail and they are not accessible online.

The Best Payment Processor an Attorney Could Hope For

Reviewed 5 months ago

Overall, LawPay is an excellent invoice and payment processor. They deposit funds into my accounts promptly and their partnership with Affirm offers an excellent option for payment plans should my clients want them. LawPay is the best option I've found in the payment processor industry.

Pros

LawPay works specifically with attorneys in a way that anticipates and addresses issues unique to the practice of law. The invoices that are sent to clients are pleasant and enable the client to pay with very little friction on their end thereby ensuring prompt payments.

Cons

Scheduling payment plans is a bit cumbersome. I would prefer a more straightforward workflow to schedule payment plans.

LawPay Usage

I would recommend LawPay to other law firms for usage. The only issue is that the website requires more information than other credit card payment portals. Not all payments automatically apply towards invoices. However, it is easy to use because you send the link or email for the client to use to pay directly.

Pros

Easy to use. Can request money through the LawPay portal. Keep track of income per month. Customer service are quick to assist. Client are able to pay via online quick and easy.

Cons
