Answer by Raad Ahmed:

I won’t lie – I’m a little bit biased, but I can’t stress how much of a bad idea it is to obtain legal services from general freelancing sites like the ones you mentioned. The main problem is that there is no way for you to verify the credentials of the legal providers, to ensure they have the legal expertise they claim to possess, or to judge the quality of their work. A game of Russian Roulette has more certainty! In the long-run, paying for a qualified attorney to advise you on your unique legal issues is often less costly than fixing any problems that could arise because you engaged the wrong lawyer from a generic freelancing site. Luckily, hiring a qualified attorney does not have to be uncertain, difficult or insanely expensive.

My company LawTrades is disrupting the legal services space by providing a one-stop platform for obtaining top-tier legal help at affordable prices. When you engage a lawyer through LawTrades, you are paying for the work itself and not other expenses. All of our attorneys are pre-vetted, highly-trained and have solid legal experience, especially with tech startups and small businesses. In addition, for each engagement, LawTrades provides a Project Manager who will be available to troubleshoot any problems that may arise from the start of your project through to its completion. We offer a free consultation and no obligation price quotes. So the next time you need a lawyer, skip those generic freelance sites and give us a try. Good luck!
