FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is LawTrades about?
Most businesses are typically stuck with large bills from law firms that operate inefficiently. We take a entirely different approach on delivering legal services by helping you work with top independent attorneys through our end to end platform. We help business owners save time and money when it comes to handling your legal needs. Our mission is to provide businesses with convenient access to vetted General Counsels without the headache of hiring someone full-time.
We believe that an attorney should be a key business advisor, not just a legal technician. All LawTrades attorneys have been senior executives at companies, so we provide a business-focused and practical approach to problem solving. We use our considerable business experience to provide members with proactive legal risk management, helping avoid problems before they arise.
With LawTrades, you can send an attorney text messages anytime and anywhere in a private, chat room. LawTrades stands out because of the affordability, convenience, and quality it provides.

Which lawyer will provide me with legal services?
LawTrades has arranged to match you with an attorney from our invite-only network of vetted General Counsel attorneys. Our attorneys have attended top law schools like Harvard, Yale, and NYU, and worked at preeminent tech companies like Tesla, Google, and Apple. The network is screened, monitored daily, and are ready to handle your legal matters as soon as you send a message.
How do I contact my attorney?
After enrolling, you will be able to log in to your account and send your attorney text messages, audio messages, as well as picture and video messages in a private, text-based chat room.
What types of things can my attorney help me with?
Think of your attorney as your dedicated General Counsel who can help you will your day-to-day legal needs, contract review, securing trademarks, drafting employment agreements, general legal advice, and more.
Are there limitations to the legal plans?
Yes. We can’t help you with any personal legal issues like criminal law, speeding tickets, divorces, trusts & estates, etc.. While the plan doesn’t cover patent filings, M&A deals, venture financings, ICO’s and litigation--we do provide members with a 20% discount on these services through the LawTrades flat-fee marketplace.
Once I sign up for LawTrades, will I have the same attorney?
Yes! You will be matched with a dedicated attorney that will develop intimate knowledge of your business to help you succeed. Just like a full-time in-house counsel, our attorneys will be available whenever you need them and take steps to be part of your management team.
How often will my lawyer respond?
Because our attorneys are real people who have multiple clients, each attorney is a little different. Usually your attorney will respond once or twice a day. Some members like to set up a specific time once a week with their attorney so they can message each other in real time. The best thing to do is talk to your attorney about your schedule and your needs, and see what works best for you.
What forms of payment does LawTrades accept?
We accept all major debit/credit cards and bank transfers on a case-by-case basis.
