Montage Legal Group’s network of freelance lawyers consists of former associates and partners who opted out of prestigious law firms, and now practice law on their own terms. Montage’s freelance attorneys assist small to mid-sized law firms with substantive legal projects on an hourly basis, providing a cost-effective way for firms to manage case overflow and grow specialty practices. Montage has seen tremendous growth since it started in 2010, growing from 3 freelance attorneys to over 80 freelancers serving law firms nationwide. “The highly credentialed freelance lawyers in Montage’s network have changed the way ‘contract lawyers’ are viewed, and have helped law firms thrive by providing them an alternative way to staff their cases at reduced costs,” says Erin Giglia.
