After six years operating a successful nationwide freelance attorney network, Montage Legal Group has acquired FreelanceLaw. FreelanceLaw will enhance Montage Legal’s current freelance attorney services by providing law firms with an online searchable database of non-attorney freelance professionals. While Montage Legal will stay focused on sophisticated contract/freelance lawyer services, FreelanceLaw is now the solution for law firms looking for all other types of freelancers – from legal secretaries to virtual bookkeepers.
Freelance professionals who specialize in serving law firms can join FreelanceLaw, and grow their own businesses by accepting projects that fit their schedules. Once a freelancer subscribes and creates a profile, law firms can hire them directly for one-time projects or long-term work.
Founded in 2006 by Melody Kramer, FreelanceLaw is designed to be a single resource for law firms seeking access to every type of freelancer needed to start, maintain, or grow a law practice, including virtual paralegals, legal secretaries, web developers, bookkeepers, court reporters, translators, editors, and more.
“With Montage Legal Group’s excellent reputation, I am confident that aligning FreelanceLaw with Montage will strongly benefit law firms and freelancers alike,” says Kramer, owner and founder of Legal Greenhouse.
Montage Legal Group, with 100 freelance attorneys hand-picked out of thousands of applicants, is well known for its emphasis on work/life balance for attorneys, especially during parenthood. Montage Legal’s founders, Laurie Rowen and Erin Giglia, intend to expand their family-friendly philosophy to reach beyond the freelance attorney market. FreelanceLaw will be a supportive space for non-attorney freelance professionals who specialize in assisting law firms to find the career balance they seek.
Rowen and Giglia have been assisting law firms since 2009 by connecting them with highly skilled freelance attorneys. “Our law firm clients have asked whether we have paralegals or secretaries on our team. Law firms are unique businesses that require specialized skills, and are so busy that they need the convenience of a single resource. We saw an opportunity to provide our clients with that resource through FreelanceLaw,” said Rowen.
