Your selection might be based on that attorney’s experience with a particular type of case or issue, or a prior good working relationship. There are no awkward exit interviews if things don’t pan out. When the project ends, so do your mutual obligations.
Your practice has grown and you now have more work than you can comfortably handle on your own. Do you sacrifice your weekends, hobbies, or family time? Or is there another way to continue delivering excellent legal services while maintaining your lifestyle? By hiring a freelance attorney, you can focus on the things you want, while confidently representing your clients.

You can make a profit by hiring a freelance attorney! Think about it. You can bill out the freelance attorney to your clients at a rate higher than you pay the freelancer, while doing very little work yourself on the project.
