Making a Legal Services Agreement
As a lawyer, you can create Legal Services Agreements to protect your business interests as you plan to perform legal work. When it is drafted correctly, this legal agreement may help to limit disputes by ensuring that there is a shared understanding between the signers. Unlike a generic PDF template that you may find on another site, your Legal Services Contract comes with the option of Document Defense®, so an On Call attorney can review the situation and take action if you need to demand payment or have another issue.
Even if you are providing legal counsel as a favor, having a record of any agreements with those hiring you is important. Using a Legal Services Agreement most likely will be helpful to your business due to this list of benefits:
In the end, if you opt not to make a Legal Services Contract, you might not enjoy any of the aforementioned protections.
Before getting started, you should prepare these critical details for the Legal Services Agreement:
As you might expect from a contract like this, any Legal Services Agreement made with Rocket Lawyer will also include the typical legalese about the non-employer relationship between the lawyer and client, confidentiality, and lastly, reimbursement for losses. While building your contract, you also can pick which state's jurisdiction it falls under. Using the Rocket Lawyer document tool, you are able to implement additional modifications, as necessary.
Luckily, you do not have to start from scratch when putting your agreement in writing. When using Rocket Lawyer, any legal professional can make Legal Services Agreements with relative ease. Your contract is built piece by piece, so you can be sure that it contains the correct details that you'll need. Ordinarily, for this level of personalization, you might ultimately end up paying a traditional law firm a few hundred dollars, if not more, in fees.
Attached alongside each Legal Services Agreement, there's a set of next steps to take after your document is completed. You also may interact with your document in any or all of these ways: making edits, printing it out, downloading it in PDF format or as a Word document, and/or getting signatures. Finally, everyone should always get a copy of your fully executed contract.
Depending on whom you reach out to, some attorneys won't even agree to review a contract that they didn't work on. A more favorable approach to consider is to go through the Rocket Lawyer On Call® attorney network. When you become a Premium member, you will be able to request guidance from an attorney with business experience or pose other questions related to your Legal Services Contract. Rocket Lawyer is here for you.
