In this issue of Legal Management, author June Bell takes a look at the firms who have explored alternate forms of payment, including credit cards. She says, “An increasing number [of consumers] are eschewing cash and checks to pay for legal services the same way they pay for groceries, clothes and movies: with plastic.”
