Your schedule is packed with court hearings. You’re practically living out of your car. When are you supposed to find time to write that next trial brief or motion for summary disposition? And will it be any good if you do it on the road?
Outsource Your Pleadings
to a Freelance Lawyer
with Writing Expertise
Trial lawyers live in the courtroom. They often have multiple hearings per day — running between judges and even courts to cover all their hearings. When they get back to the office, it’s all about returning client calls, doing initial consultations, and keeping that pipeline full. Drafting documents gets relegated to evenings and weekends, or worse, dictation on the road.
But what if it didn’t have to be that way? What if a phone call and an email could take writing off your plate and leave you more time to spend with your clients? And what if doing that could actually improve your pleadings?
Freelancer Lawyers Take Writing Off Your To-Do List
In “Smart Growth: Tapping Into the Freelance Lawyer Ecosystem” Attorney @ Work writer Dan Lear suggested using a freelance lawyer as an alternative to bringing on an associate for your firm. He says:
“You can also increase revenue by staffing matters with contract or freelance attorneys. In fact, with the rise of the ‘gig economy’ and the power of the internet to connect professionals across significant distances, tapping into the freelance lawyer ecosystem is easier than ever.”Dan Lear, Smart Growth: Tapping Into the Freelance Lawyer Ecosystem

A freelance attorney can take writing off your to-do list. It allows you to delegate the time-consuming process of research and writing, so you can focus on what you’re good at: advocating for your clients in court.
