FreelanceLaw is co-owned by Laurie Gormican Rowen and Erin Clary Giglia. Laurie and Erin met at Snell & Wilmer, LLP, where they worked together as litigation associates. After their daughters were born two weeks apart, the two litigators decided to leave the firm to go out on their own as freelance/contract attorneys, and co-founded Montage Legal Group in 2009.
Montage Legal Group is the premier freelance attorney network, with over 100 freelance attorneys who were hand-picked out of thousands of applicants.
In an effort to provide increased service to law firms, Montage Legal Group acquired FreelanceLaw.com in 2015. View our press release here. FreelanceLaw.com will enhance Montage Legal Group’s freelance attorney network by gathering non-attorney freelancers in a single space to further assist law firms nationwide.
FreelanceLaw.com is a searchable online database designed as a single resource for any law firm looking to start, maintain, or grow their practice by using freelancers across disciplines to meet their non-attorney needs. FreelanceLaw.com can help law firms locate virtual paralegals, legal secretaries, web developers, bookkeepers, court reporters, translators, and many more. All freelance professionals who can serve law firms on an hourly basis are invited to register to create a free profile. As of October, 2015, FreelanceLaw is 100% free for both law firms and freelancers, and no fees or costs are ever charged.
Laurie and Erin have been recognized for their efforts to create work-life balance in the legal industry, and have been featured in numerous publications including the ABA Journal - “Freelance Law: Lawyers’ Network Helps These Women Keep a Hand in the Workforce” and Forbes.com - “How Two Moms Are Changing the Legal Industry."
