How many hours can I expect?
There is no answer to this question. Everyone is different. It depends on the projects that come through, your background, your availability, and many other factors that depend primarily on each individual freelance attorney. There is no “typical” experience. Some freelance attorneys may work 50 hours per month for a variety of firms, while others may work 10 hours per year through Montage’s platform.
What is a “typical project?”
“Typical” does not exist in the freelance world. Some examples of projects may include drafting motions, research, discovery, drafting commercial agreements, and assisting with a merger.
Can I work for other companies/firms/somewhere else if I’m working with the Montage platform?
Yes. All freelance attorneys participating in Montage’s platform are independent businesses that make their own career and professional decisions.
