After you’ve posted your first Project, you are able to complete your Lawyer Exchange profile. Your profile allows Project Lawyers to get to know you and your firm. To complete your profile, click the “My Profile” tab at the top of your screen.
To set up your profile, you can submit the following:
- Profile picture
- Law practice/firm description
- Additional Questions
Under Basic Info, you can add a Profile picture and a description of your law practice/firm.
Having a profile picture makes you look both professional and friendly. Pictures must be under 5 MB and can be in .PNG, .JPG, or .JPEG format.
For best results, ensure the picture is uploaded as a square (equal width and height) and at least 300x300 pixels – this way the image will not get distorted or look grainy. The best photos are of just you with a plain background. You can also use a logo or a different professional image that represents you (a Bitmoji is a great example).
When adding a description of your law practice/firm, you can be as broad or detailed as you’d like as long as you stay under 400 characters.
If you’d like to provide even more background on your legal and non-legal experience, you can do so by answering optional Additional Questions. These range anywhere from identifying how long you’ve been practicing to describing the characteristics you look for in making hiring decisions. You may answer as many or few of these questions as you’d like.
Attorney License Verifications
You were already prompted to supply your attorney registration information to post a project to Lawyer Exchange. If you are a lawyer with licenses in multiple states, you can use this section to submit additional states’ licenses and manage the verifications you’ve already submitted.
As a reminder - because Lawyer Exchange is exclusively for lawyers and JDs who have registered for or taken the Bar exam, we require all members to submit their attorney license information.
