Legal consulting for Fiverr Pro

We’re opening the subcategory Legal consulting to Pro freelancers.

The definition for Pro in this subcategory means that the freelancer is a vetted lawyer.
Currently, we are only able to vet freelancers from the US and the UK. We hope to add additional locations in the future.

Please note: This subcategory is in pilot testing, and Fiverr reserves the option to cancel or modify it at any time.

We’re excited to introduce a new space in the marketplace for clients to search for lawyers who are vetted by the Fiverr team and are able to practice law and provide legal counseling (in specific locations).

Let’s review everything you need to know about what it means to be a Pro freelancer in Legal consulting.

 

Legal consulting for Pro freelancers

All Pro freelancers in the subcategory Legal consulting have undergone a process to confirm that they are accredited lawyers.
If you are a freelancer who is an accredited lawyer, from a US state or from parts of the UK and you deliver high-quality work, we invite you to apply to Fiverr Pro.

View the list of eligible locations below.

Legal consulting Pro services (for clients)

We’re taking a step forward and working towards vetting our freelancers in the subcategory Legal consulting—starting with most US states and the UK.

About the vetting process

A freelancer with a Pro badge not only has a high quality of service, but will also have undergone a process to confirm that they are an accredited lawyer at the time of vetting.

Please note: A freelancer’s vetted status is valid according to the date when we checked the data.

Important things to know

Keep in mind, not all services related to legal issues must be completed by an accredited lawyer—this depends on the type of service required.

For example: Legal research can be done by a person who is not an accredited lawyer. However, we suggest that you check with the relevant freelancer, and receive all of the required information regarding the service to confirm if you need a lawyer or not. 

Note: In any case, we recommend that you message your freelancer and make sure both parties have all necessary information before placing an order—including if the freelancer is certified to practice law in your jurisdiction.
