Strohmeyer Law PLLC is a trusted law firm focusing on estate planning, tax, and probate law. John Strohmeyer and his team prioritize simplifying estate planning for their clients, ensuring a smooth process and thorough attention to detail.

With the firm's growth in both clients and team size, Strohmeyer Law saw the need to enhance its billing operations—aiming to improve efficiency and provide a seamless payment experience for clients. This led to a partnership with LawPay, which reflects the firm’s commitment to leveraging tools that enable them to better focus on their core mission: providing top-notch legal services.

LawPay’s features have helped Strohmeyer Law streamline processes, receive payments faster, and concentrate on assisting clients more effectively. This strategic choice not only boosts operational efficiency but also supports the firm’s dedication to excellence and client satisfaction.

Below, we’ll explore the key outcomes that have underscored the success of Strohmeyer's collaboration with LawPay in the firm's ongoing mission to deliver exemplary legal services.

Streamlined Workflows

Since partnering with LawPay, Strohmeyer Law has been able to simply and efficiently accept payments online as opposed to dealing with complex banking portals.

“I've pretty much bypassed a lot of the complicated dealing with banks and bank portals by going straight with LawPay from the outset. It just made it easier to send the clients a simple link where they can upload credit card details or their eChecks directly into our payment systems,” said Strohmeyer.

Employees within the firm have also felt the effects of a cleaner payment processing solution. Account Manager Bill Moody says using LawPay helps him do his job more efficiently.

“If you're in a position like mine or you're strictly just doing the billing for a law firm, LawPay is the way to go. It's quick. It's simple. It's easy to use,” said Moody.

Reclaimed Time

For Strohmeyer Law, one of the biggest advantages of LawPay is the ability to automate invoicing. This feature keeps account managers from having to chase down late or unpaid invoices when they could be using their time on more impactful tasks.

“LawPay helps me do my job efficiently because otherwise I would be chasing dollars from clients,” said Billy Moody. “It saves me time. It's very efficient and allows me the time that I need to spend on other functions here at the practice.”

Online payments with LawPay allow you to send invoices instantly. In turn, invoices can be paid just as quickly. A confirmation of payment is sent to your email and a pending deposit is made to your bank account shortly thereafter.

Increased Client Satisfaction

With multiple ways to pay and 24/7 access, online payments give Strohmeyer Law clients the flexibility they need to pay for legal services at any time, from anywhere.

Strohmeyer commented, “LawPay is essential to my practice at this point because clients expect to pay by credit cards or eChecks. Nobody wants to write a physical check to me anymore. They want to be able to pay quickly and easily.”

Pay Later allows clients to make payments over time while the firm is paid 100% of their fees upfront. Strohmeyer believes this solution will allow the firm to acquire more clientele and expand access to justice.

He elaborates, “I'm looking forward to using Pay Later because it'll allow our clients more flexibility in how they pay us. We're here to help clients. I'm looking at Pay Later as a way to help us help more clients.”

Integrated with Popular Legal Software

Strohmeyer Law also cites LawPay’s ability to integrate with other legal software as a major benefit.

“When I send out a trust request through our management system, it is integrated with LawPay and I'm able to go into LawPay's website and immediately see who's paid, who hasn't paid,” said Moody. “It's just so much quicker, simpler, easier to process those payments for the retainers of the clients through LawPay than in years past. I find it very easy to use.”

LawPay’s payment solution is integrated with more than 70+ leading legal platforms and counting.

Prompt, Live Support

Most importantly, LawPay is always there to help whenever the Strohmeyer firm needs assistance.

“A lot of times, I can figure out what I need without assistance, but I love being able to call somebody at LawPay to walk me through something when I can't do on my own,” comments Moody.

LawPay’s in-house team of payment specialists is made up of real human beings who are available by phone, live chat, or email to answer any questions you may have about your accounts.

Ultimately, LawPay has proven to be an invaluable asset to the team at Strohmeyer Law PLLC. “LawPay made it easy for me to run this firm from the time it was just me alone to now where I've got a team of seven. I couldn't have done it without LawPay,” says Strohmeyer. “We've stuck with LawPay because they are the leader in payments.”
