Payment via business/entity checks, personal checks, cashier's checks, and money orders are welcomed. With the potential exception described below, funds must be drawn on a US bank.
We are happy to provide corporate billing for US PMCs, and for approved entitles based in Virginia, from which a corporate check could be mailed and cleared prior to the commencement of services.
We understand that sophisticated, ethical circumstances can arise wherein the ability to endorse a legitimate third-party check can be beneficial. Arcane civil situations can cause temporary complications with business banking, and there are many indirect manipulations by which adversaries can infiltrated bank records. Checks payable to businesses, and other relatively sophisticated situations pertinent to our clients, are outside the domain of low-end consumer venues.
Faithfulness in Our Ethical ClientsTo prevent opportunism by non-clients who would tempted to abuse our trust, submissions of third-party checks must be thirty days in advance of respective services, and cannot be applied to both the fees and any applicable deposit. Third-party checks are only accepted from existing clients.

For amounts of more than ten thousand dollars, with services commencing after more than thirty days, the payee may be an attorney, an attorney trust account, or real estate holding company; case-by-case approval is required, and reimbursement of legal fees may apply to attorney payees. Likewise, for amounts of more than the equivalent of ten thousand US dollars, with services commencing after more than thirty days, funds may be drawn on an approved non-US bank in a country that is an ally of the US, subject to case-by-case approval and reimbursement of related expenses.

Funds of any amount can be wired into a bank account in the U.S. For routine, domestic wire transfers, we pay for the basic fees that you incur, as well as for our receipt. For international transfers, we credit you for the full value, based on the exchange rate identified to us via our sending bank for the particular transaction.
