FAQs for Attorneys
Q: How do I get started?
A: The first step to getting hired by potential clients is to update and
complete your free attorney profile. Your profile is the first thing potential clients will see when searching for you or
evaluating the emails you send in response to their project postings. In order to make a good first impression, you should
ensure that your profile is as complete and informative as possible. You can update your Attorney Profile by clicking the “Edit
Profile” button from your Attorney homepage.
Q: Is it free to have a profile?
A: It is completely free to update and maintain your profile. It is also completely free to review legal projects posted by potential clients. Finally, it is free to connect with clients seeking pro bono services. However, if you want to respond to a "pay for service" project posting and connect with that client, you need a Premium Account, which is $300 annually. Once you have a Premium Account, you can respond to as many projects and connect with as many potential clients as you like.
Q: How do I find relevant legal projects?
A: Once you have logged into your account, the legal projects that have been
posted in the areas you practice and your selected counties will be emailed to you and listed on your Attorney Homepage. If you
want to search for legal projects in other cities and counties and/or other areas of law, you can also do that from your
Attorney Homepage. Simply click on "Find Work" at the top of the page, and you will be directed to a page that lists all legal
projects and helps you search for projects by various criteria.
Q: Once I have found a legal project that I want to pursue, how do I do that?
A: If you have a Premium Account and would like to respond to a legal project
that has been emailed to you or posted on your homepage, log in to your account, find the project, click on the project title,
click on "Connect With this Client", and then draft a cover letter to the client regarding the project. If you do not have a
Premium Account, then you need to upgrade to a Premium Account, and can then respond to any and all legal projects.
Q: Once I have responded to a legal project, how do I get hired?
A: After reviewing and evaluating your email, the potential client will then
determine whether to reach out to you to continue the hiring process. If a potential client ultimately decides to hire you
after discussing the legal project with you, that hiring process is done entirely off-line, without our involvement.
