Lawyer Exchange's payments are powered through Braintree Payments' Marketplace platform and issued through Venmo. We have integrated their services into our system to assure secure, timely payments for our Project Lawyers. Braintree requires your personal information for the purpose of identity verification/fraud prevention. This information is encrypted into our database, so while you are able to edit it on Lawyer Exchange, we are unable to access it. You can read more about how Braintree securely stores your personal information here: https://www.braintreepayments.com/features/data-security -- you can also learn more about Venmo and its security features here: https://venmo.com/about/security/


How do I get paid on Lawyer Exchange?

To receive payments, you'll connect your Lawyer Exchange account to Venmo. If you don't have a Venmo account, you will be prompted to create one.

    If you don't have a Venmo account, you will be prompted to create one.

    If you already have a Venmo account, you will simply connect it through our system. You'll need to make sure your email address on Lawyer Exchange matches the one on your Venmo account. Contact us if you need to change your email address.


How do I get set up with Venmo?

When you submit your first proposal, you'll be automatically prompted to connect to Venmo. To do so, you'll need to provide your date of birth, social security number, and street address.


Why do I need to get verified when I submit a proposal?

This early verification process allows you to get paid faster when the project work is completed! It also provides extra security for the Hiring Lawyers so they can be ensured that their proposals are all from verified Project Lawyers.


What if I already have a Venmo account?

If you already have a Venmo account, you'll just need to make sure the email address you use for Venmo matches the one on your Lawyer Exchange account. If it does not match, just send us an email at support@lawyerexchange.com, providing the email address on your Venmo account. We will change your email address and follow up with next steps. 


How long does it take to get paid?

You'll receive an email confirmation from Lawyer Exchange when the Hiring Lawyer has made a payment. You should see the payment in your Venmo account within 2-3 business days of this email.
