LawPay Card Vault

LawPay’s Secured Credit Card Vault

LawPay’s Card Vault stores preferred payment methods in a secure vault. Card Vault and LawPay are 100% PCI compliant. This means it follows all industry and jurisdictional regulations, standards, and best practices.

There are two ways to store payment information: Add New Card or Request Card.

When the Add New Card method is used, the firm inputs the payment information received from a client over the phone. Note that Baker Vicchiollo Law does not accept or send credit card information via email due to security risks. The Request Card method is when the firm sends an email that includes a link which the client uses to input payment information themselves.

After the credit card or eCheck bank information is collected and vaulted, only the last four digits of the card and expiration date will be visible. The client is also able to input multiple payment methods such as a credit card and eCheck to have on file. As the client fills out the vault form, they’ll also be required to give the firm authorization to make charges, in accordance with the signed retainer agreement.

LawPay PCI Compliance

What is PCI compliance and why is it important?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards set in place by the major card brands (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and JCB). Its purpose is to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment to prevent this information from being stolen or compromised. The standard was originally adopted in 2006 and requires businesses to complete an annual compliance questionnaire regarding the way credit card information is handled in their office.

Is LawPay PCI certified?

Yes, LawPay is PCI DSS certified. ControlScan, a VISA Qualified Security Assessor, has independently audited LawPay and certified that LawPay is PCI DSS compliant. LawPay’s online portal is certified as a Level 1 Service Provider, the highest security level available.
