The Pros and Cons of Surcharging: Why Payment Surcharging Could Be the Right Answer for Your Law Firm

On-Demand Webinar

Are processing fees keeping you from accepting credit card payments?

Is holding off on taking credit card payments from your clients holding you back from timely payments?

Most of us expect the ease and convenience of paying with a card, but law firms have to consider costs incurred—costs that can include substantial processing fees.

Surcharging to cover these fees might be a viable option for your firm and worth the cost for your clients.

Learning Objectives:

  2. How do I decide if surcharging is right for my firm?
  3. Is surcharging allowed in my state?

Watch the on-demand webinar to find out if surcharging might benefit you and your clients.

What Our Clients Are Saying...


There isn’t anything I don’t like. Easier timekeeping and keeps the books straight because they have to match up…we switched because it includes bookkeeping and timekeeping in one program.

Rebecca Norton | On Point Legal, Louisiana


We needed to find an alternative solution to PCLaw, as we were moving to a cloud-based system. It appeared the employees at CosmoLex had more experience in migrating the data from PCLaw to CosmoLex.

Andrea C. Kryszak | Kryszak & Associates, Co., LPA


Using a third-party platform for accounting didn’t make sense anymore…conflict check approach is good and I like the ability to handle my accounting within the case management software.
