Each project must start with an initial payment to your freelancer. All payments must be paid on the Freelance For Law platform. If any user requests or accepts payments outside of the Freelance For Law platform, their accounts will be blocked and indefinitely suspended.

  • Online skills test results

The best profiles are complete, well-written, error-free, and feature a professional, friendly-looking picture. Once you have a strong profile, start looking for jobs. Search, submit proposals, interview, repeat. The more you’re active, the more job prospects. Also, consider taking our tests to certify your legal knowledge and skills and strengthen your profile further!

In many ways, working with a client online is just like working with any other client. To be successful, you should choose work you’re qualified for, communicate well with your clients, and take the time to build great working relationships. How you work with your clients is up to you, but here are a few tips from successful legal freelancers:

Choose your projects carefully:
When you interview for a project, “interview” your client as well. Ask questions about the project and what result is expected. Be sure the project’s needs are in line with the desired deadline and that you’ll have the time to execute it well. If you end up feeling that the client or project isn’t right for you, turn it down and search for another.

Start the project strong:
Once you’re hired, have a conversation with your client to kick off the project. Decide how you will work together and your preferred mode of communication. Agree on project deadlines. Make sure not to overpromise if you don’t think a deadline is reasonable. Then, gather all the information you need to get started.

Communicate clearly:
Be proactive. Even if the client doesn’t ask for it, consider communicating with them at least once per week. Let them know what you’re working on, and what your schedule will be for delivering work. Respect timelines. Agree on deadlines with your client and make sure you keep them. If you won’t be able to meet a deadline, communicate with your client immediately to let them know when you’ll be able to complete the work. When in doubt, ask. If you have a question, ask. This will keep your work on track and on time. Respond quickly. When your client reaches out, responding quickly can help you build a strong relationship. Clients may get concerned if they don’t hear from you.

Ensure client satisfaction.
Consider submitting a small part of the project early on. Ask your client if the work product meets their needs. As you submit deliverables, make sure the client is happy with the results before moving on to the next step. At the end of the contract, make sure your client has everything they need.

That’s up to you. On Freelance For Law, you set and negotiate your rates. As with any business, your earning power is often tied to your experience and the demand for your skills. Once you build your reputation, you’ll typically be able to command higher rates from clients who respect your proven abilities.
