Feb. 25, 2015     Earlier this week Paybefore named the Top 10 Payments Lawyers based on votes from visitors. Presented during the All Payments Expo in Las Vegas, 10 lawyers were recognized for their commitment to the people and progress of emerging payments and a passion for what they do that goes beyond being “just a job.”

The Top 10 Payments Lawyers Poll ran from Dec. 12-31, and we received 1,859 votes.

“Ten is a large number of attorneys to honor, but we easily could have doubled the number because of the quality and commitment lawyers in our industry have shown—going beyond the business just being work and really believing that they are doing important work,” said Paybefore CEO Marilyn Bochicchio.

The list is in alphabetical order except for the first lawyer Chuck Rouse, partner at Douthit Frets Rouse Gentile & Rhodes LLC and chairman of Card Compliant, who was the No. 1 vote-getter, with an astounding 978 votes.

Paybefore also recognized the late Terry Maher and presented a crystal award to Gray Derrick and Eli Rosenberg from Baird Holm LLP, Omaha, where he was a partner.

Each lawyer was recognized and received a crystal trophy. The awards were sponsored by R&P Group, a payments recruiting firm in Sioux Falls, S.D.
