Welcome to LawPay!

Our mission is simple—to provide the best online payment solution to the legal industry. LawPay is more than just a “merchant account”—we are the only complete end-to-end credit card processing program for attorneys. We fully understand a trust account violation can have serious consequences for your firm, your finances, and more importantly your professional reputation. We do not take this responsibility lightly.

At LawPay, we have built a proprietary payment system, and combined it with a team of expert bankcard professionals to fully manage all your payment needs. I am extremely proud of this team and the work they do to support and educate attorneys. Whether accepting credit cards for the first time, or a seasoned card acceptor, I am confident you will benefit from the LawPay advantage.

Thank you for trusting your transactions to LawPay!
