Based in Austin, Texas, LawPay is a full-service merchant account and online payment gateway provider. Parent company, AffiniPay, was created in response to demand from local, state and national organizations to work with a payment processor that understands the unique needs of association payment processes. Eventually our Association Partners asked us to extend our custom payment solutions and friendly customer service to their members.
LawPay is the custom card acceptance solution for Bar Association members, attorneys, and law firms, and was developed with the input of our bar association partners and their ethics committees. It is critical for attorneys to handle credit card transactions between their trust and operating accounts correctly. LawPay meets the requirements for the American Bar Association and most state trust account guidelines, as well as the Attorney’s Professional Code of Conduct.
LawPay not only separates funds, it protects the attorney trust account from all 3rd party access. We restrict the ability of all other banking institutions from debiting monies from an attorney trust or IOLTA account. As a result, LawPay is the only merchant service provider recommended exclusively by 34 states and 48 city and metropolitan bar associations.
