"As a private practice lawyer, the thing I disliked the most was keeping track of my hours. With Goodlawyer, no more docketing!! I just lawyer, and all the non-billable stuff is taken off my hands."

Who uses Goodlawyer?

Goodlawyer's mission is to service the legal needs of entrepreneurs, SMEs, early-stage startups, freelancers and solopreneurs. We target and recruit lawyers that specialize in servicing these types of clients. 

Why does Goodlawyer encourage customer reviews?

Helping entrepreneurs succeed is our core mission. As a result, we strongly encourage our users to rate their lawyer on the completion of a legal mandate and we take unsatisfactory user experiences seriously. Whenever a lawyer on our platform is the subject of a user complaint or if their aggregate user review score falls below a certain threshold, Goodlawyer investigates the lawyer and the relevant circumstances to determine whether the lawyer is fit to continue practicing through our platform. 

How do I get paid on Goodlawyer?

The Goodlawyer platform streamlines the traditional invoicing and billing process down to a few minutes and ensures prompt and certain payment collection through credit card payment processing integration with Stripe. 

How much does it cost?

Unlike other marketing solutions, Goodlawyer does not charge a recurring monthly fee to lawyers and there are no time commitments or hidden fees. Just commitment to providing quality legal services at affordable rates. The only requirement is that the lawyers in our network subscribe to the Practical Law Core package, which they can access at a special Goodlawyer rate once they've been approved to join the network.

Goodlawyer is an interactive online service that makes it faster and easier for clients to find and hire legal help solely based on their preferences. We are not a law firm, do not provide any legal services, legal advice or “lawyer referral services” and do not provide or participate in any legal representation.
