SoOLEGAL Payment System
For General & Consultation Invoicing & Payment Collection

We at SoOLEGAL recognize that a lawyer’s greatest asset is his legal mind. And his time, money!

A lawyer’s practice involves not just appearing in the courts, but also in giving consultations and opinions on legal matters of national, social and local importance. Even individuals seek out lawyers for opinions on their fresh or on-going cases. Lawyers may choose to provide such services on a paid or pro bono basis. The consultations are best conveyed when formally articulated on paper (or written digitally) and not just through meeting notes or small text/chat messages. Hence, a lawyer must also be able to archive and easily retrieve all recommendations given by him.

In addition, tracking in-coming payments, checking for upcoming payments, identifying pending payments, and most importantly, maintaining the accuracy of transactions impact the financial performance and client relationship of lawyers/law firms.

SoOLEGAL’s Payment System for General and Consultation Invoicing, the e-payment initiative launched for the first time for Lawyers, caters to all such commercial and document management needs. This e-payment system, developed on the basis of extensive research across the lawyer life cycle and client life cycle, is one-of-its-kind, wherein lawyers can get paid online for providing legal opinion, consultation and other services. With a provision to record/export existing client data and payment status in the platform, SoOLEGAL allows lawyers to centralize the client database and use its payment system for ongoing and new services being provided.

In the case of Consultations, the platform further allows lawyers the flexibility to create, copy/paste or even upload recommendations, with features such as automatic linking of file to the lawyer’s SoOLEGAL profile/account, tagging of files with client details/ID and collecting online payment for services rendered. The transactions are secure, with zero wait time and instant SMS/e-mail notifications on the successful transaction to both the lawyer and client.

With its unique payment system as one of its biggest differentiators, SoOLEGAL has emerged as a simple and secure medium for lawyers and clients to ensure timely and hassle-free payments. It serves as a win-win situation for both the parties – the client is assured of his professional advice / counsel and the lawyer is assured of his professional fee. The platform ushers in a new era of a structured process and standardization of payment collection for the legal fraternity.
