1 – Double check the requirements to ensure you are qualified. If the project is across the country but not a remote position, this may not be the project for you. Some factors to keep in mind are how much time you’re able to allot, the start date and duration, your state registration, and whether or not you need to be on-site.

2 – Consider whether an hourly or flat rate fee makes more sense! Other attorneys will be submitting rates as well, so it’s important to balance competitive pay with a rate you are comfortable with.

3 – Show off your relevant skills in your introduction. If you have experience catered to this project, this is a great place to tell the Hiring Lawyer about it. This can usually be summed up in 3-4 quality sentences.

Tip – Use complete sentences, and double check your spelling and grammar before submitting your proposal. Hiring Lawyers are looking for professional proposals; they set expectations for the work they will receive from you.  Remember, you cannot send another message until the HL responds to your proposal, so be sure to include any information you want them to see in your introduction.

Tip – Have a completed profile. The Hiring Lawyer will be able to view your profile alongside your proposal! Make sure your resume is up-to-date and that all your attorney license information is correct. Learn more tips about filling out your profile here.
