Save time and money with FreelanceLaw
FreelanceLaw connects law firms wanting to outsource legal research, brief writing, and many other projects, with U.S. freelance legal professionals ready and able to do the work. Unlike traditional employment agencies, there is no need to commit to a lengthy period of time, nor are you stuck with just anyone the agency sends to you. Unlike posting a job ad at your local law school or in a legal publication, or bid sites such as eLance or Freelancer.com, you don't have to publicly post your personnel needs or wait several weeks for responses or generic bids.
We are not like other freelance sites for a very important reason - no other site takes into account the unique nature of attorneys' confidentiality obligations. No need to carefully craft a personnel request for a temporary staffing agency that says just enough, but not too much, in terms of your requirements and preferences. No need to wait for a stack of resumes to wade through. Confidentially search through hundreds of freelance profiles whenever you want from the comfort of your own office.
