LawPay (Legacy)

LawPay provides credit card processing exclusively for attorneys. LawPay is 100% compliant with IOLTA guidelines and the ABA code of professional conduct. It is critical for attorneys to handle credit card transactions correctly. LawPay ensures complete protection of your client trust accounts, in compliance with both State and ABA guidelines for accounting.

With newer LawPay accounts (LawPay 2.0), you can use our Clio Payments feature to accept online payments. With Clio Payments, you can either use your existing LawPay account, or set up a new LawPay account right from within the app.

If you have an older LawPay account (LawPay Legacy), you can use our Classic Payments feature to accept online payments.

The instructions below detail how to connect LawPay (Legacy) to Clio's Classic Payments feature.

Note: While LawPay is available in Canada, the Canadian version does not currently work with Clio.
