Is Goodlawyer a law firm?
No. Goodlawyer is a law company and our network of lawyers consists of solos and small firms with independent practices. We are not a law firm and do not provide any legal services, legal advice or ‘lawyer referral services,’ nor do we provide or participate in any legal representation.

Our lawyers get the best aspects of being a solo lawyer with the resources and backing of a law firm. They get to be entrepreneurial, work on their schedule, pick their clients, and do as much or as little BD as they want. At the same time, Goodlawyer provides the operational support typically provided by medium and large law firms (software tools, client support, billing & collections, marketing & sales, peers & community, etc).
Who is in the Goodlawyer community?
We’re exceptionally proud of our diverse, experienced, and forward-thinking community of 140+ lawyers across Canada. The majority have 10+ years of experience in big law, in-house, and solo roles across various industries and practice areas. Our lawyers range from experienced former partners at Canada’s best-known firms to 5-year solos who have demonstrated exceptional talent and client care.

Additionally, Goodlawyer is proud to have an inclusive network of lawyers significantly more diverse than legal industry standards, with well over 50% of our network being women or members of equity-deserving groups.
What is the application process like?
Goodlawyer has a highly competitive selection process that includes five steps:

Online Application
Submit an application and provide information about your practice experience, employment history, education, and other attributes that make lawyers successful on Goodlawyer.

Initial Interview
A member of our Lawyer Experience Team will assess the lawyer’s interpersonal characteristics like professionalism and friendliness, and their motivations for joining the Goodlawyer network.

Deep Dive Interview
Our Head of Lawyer Experience will assess the lawyer’s skill and approach to practice. We look for technical knowledge and compatibility with Goodlawyer’s fundamental values of professionalism, quality, fairness and transparency, and exceptional customer experience.

Reference Checks
Applicants are asked to provide recent client or peer references.

Code of Conduct and Continuous Monitoring
Before they can practice on our platform, we ask lawyers to agree to Goodlawyer’s Code of Conduct. We also continuously monitor, collect, and review client feedback, and remove lawyers who fail to maintain our practice standards and expectations.
What is the fee model?
On Goodlawyer, we only make money when you do. We do not charge lawyers a recurring monthly fee, and there are no time commitments or hidden fees. Goodlawyer does not charge clients upfront retainers. 

Lawyers are paid upon completion of a service and pay Goodlawyer an Administration Fee. Clients pay Goodlawyer a variable Service Fee based on the legal fee and other factors.
