Helping People Move Forward

LIFE HAPPENS

Securing Your Future & Assets

Life is unpredictable, so it is important to plan for the future. Estate planning communicates your wishes to your loved ones and validates your plans through proper legal documentation. For example, health care directives will tell medical staff or a designated person what your wishes are in case you become incapacitated. 

Establishing a plan now will assure that your wishes and instructions are followed in the event that you are unable to make your own decisions or you pass away. Baker Vicchiollo Law can help you establish a will, trust, power of attorney, health care directive, just to name a few important of any estate plan.  We can address more complex issues related estate planning such as estate gift tax planning, cabin trusts, closely held business interest and more.

With the help of an experienced estate planning attorney, you can realize the peace of mind that comes with having a plan to handle your personal affairs and to provide for your family; including instructions on how you want assets distributed and your designation of guardian for minor children.

UPDATING YOUR EXISTING ESTATE PLAN

If you already have an estate plan, it is important to update it as your life changes. A will or other document that has become outdated could be challenged. When new property is acquired, wishes change, beneficiaries change, or relationship status changes, updating your will or healthcare directives is very important.

With the help of an attorney from Baker Vicchiollo Law, you can ensure that your plan remains accurate and current so it can be carried out in the way that you intended.

PEACE OF MIND

Planning for the future means making decisions for yourself instead of someone else making them for you.  Making your wishes known minimizes the need for family, friends, and loved ones to figure out your wishes in the unfortunate event that you become incapacitated, including what happens to your assets after you pass away.  Planning for the future means providing for your family.

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.
