Terms and Conditions

(1) For payments on behalf of a client. NOT for payments by clients:  This screen is NOT to be used by clients of our law firm.  It is only to be used by someone, other than the client, who wants to make a payment on behalf of a client.  Caution: A client who makes payment to our law firm using his or her own credit opposed to a 'debit' card...may be working a fraud on the credit card company involved. Clients should only make payments using cash, certified funds, money order or using a 'debit' card.  If you are a client and wish to a payment using your 'debit' card: Click Here To Make A Debit Card Payment.
(2) The credit card must be one of the following: Visa, Mastercard or American Express. (We do NOT accept Discover.)
(3) Payments only for existing clients:  Making a payment on behalf of a person who is not already a client of our law firm will not, by itself, create an attorney-client relationship.

If you are not our client and want to make a credit card payment, please: click here to make a credit card payment

(4) Office location required: We need to know the location of the branch office that the client is working through so that we can inform that office that a payment has been made on behalf of the client. If you do NOT know the office location, before you make a payment, please call the client to find out the correct office.
(5) Who is the client working with at our office?  After you pick the office, this question will appear.  If you know the answer, please pick the name from the list provided.  If you do NOT know the answer, before you make a payment, please call the client to see if the client knows the name.  If the client does not know, just pick "unknown" and we will figure it out.
(6) Email confirmation of payment: On the next screen, you must provide an email address if you want us to provide you with a receipt for your payment.

Sometime after your online payment is processed, you may receive an email notice that reads as follows:

"Thank you for you online order.  You order (order number) has been shipped from LAW OFFICES OF JOHN T. ORCUTT, PC."

This automatically sent notice is meant to be further confirmation of your online payment.  Unfortunately, it reads incorrectly, and gives the incorrect impression that something else is going on, separate from or in addition to your online credit card payment.  We fully understand that if the credit card companies need to send out an additional notice, it should at least read correctly.  It should read "online payment" instead of "online order", and obviously, since there is nothing to ship, it should not give the false impression that something has been shipped. Behind the scenes, we are working to either correct or eliminate this incorrect and confusing notice.  In the meantime, if you get a notice to this effect, please ignore it, and know that there is nothing bad happening and nothing you need to worry about.  It's nothing more than an incorrectly worded notice that gives the wrong impression.

Lastly, please accept our apology, in advance for any frustration or concern that this incorrect notice may cause.
