Frequently Asked Questions
There are some questions that get asked a lot, so we went ahead and answered them for you.
What is LawTrades?
LawTrades is the start of a better legal experience. We’re an online marketplace for finding the legal services you need to run your business. No more bloated law firm hourly rates, questionable do-it-yourself legal forms, or “posting a job” and waiting for offers. In other words, we’re here to get legal done, right.
How do I get started?
Just sign up with your name, email, and phone number and you’ll receive a text message from one of our Sales Engineers who will briefly discuss your legal issue and instantly give you a fixed-fee quote. Upon payment, which is conducted securely through the site and aligned with the progress of your project, you’ll be introduced to a world-class business lawyer who will get to work immediately. We’ll even manage the progress of your project from start to finish and you'll never pay for overages as our work is guaranteed.
Are these quality legal services?
Our team of legal veterans and serial entrepreneurs personally review and vet every lawyer on the platform. Our lawyers have an average 10 years legal experience and alums of some of the most prestigious law firms and corporations. In most cases we interview them in person and accept approximately 5% of applications.
Is LawTrades a law firm?
Nope, we were built on the idea that the current law firm model is broken so we don’t mind being something new. We help entrepreneurial-minded lawyers deliver more efficient and effective legal services and improve legal processes. But we don’t practice law.
Why projects and not job postings?
We believe in open transparency and making smart suggestions based on your business instead of making you guess from thin air. We want you to connect the dots and get the appropriate legal work done as your business grows. No posting and waiting, no price guessing, and no back and forth.
It’s like having access to a firm with an endless supply of on-demand legal services, minus the massive overhead that would cost you an arm and a leg.
How do I learn more about the lawyer?
Businesses around the world trust LinkedIn as a resource to evaluate prospective candidates so we thought why not give you that ability as well.
While other companies deliberately hide that information for fear of getting cut out, we offer a remarkable experience that naturally keeps our users on the platform.
How does LawTrades make money?
Our lawyer providers who partner with LawTrades pay a transaction fee for each project completed. We help lawyers increase the efficiency of their practices and provide prompt legal services to clients like you.
What should I do if I don’t see a project I need?
Just tell us your situation and we’ll match you with the right lawyer who will complete it for you.
Once I purchase a project, what happens?
The lawyer will get a notification and have an opportunity to review and accept the project. Once accepted, you will get a notification with some information needed to get the work started. We’ll be here every step of the way to make sure it’s a smooth process for both sides. Once the work is completed, you’ll have a chance to review everything.
I love LawTrades - how can I spread the word?
We love you too. If you want to get involved, connect with us on our social channels, such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram...or even get weekly updates from our CEO! We’d love to hear from you.
