Priori Legal is a service that matches small business users with lawyers through a combination of proprietary software and hand curation by project managers, which is how they seem to set themselves apart from services like UpCounsel. As with UpCounsel, they tout themselves as a way for attorneys at small firms to connect with more clients and reduce overhead.
Prior Legal also places high value on its network of lawyers. They boast that lawyers on their platform must apply online, interview in person, have client and attorney reference checks and maintain a 95% approval rating (only 20% of lawyers are accepted). But what really makes this different from other high-quality and high-value legal services is their focus on the user experience. They offer a range of pricing options—hourly, flat-rate, capped rate, contingency, and subscription—making them a real option for everyone from entrepreneurs to enterprise.
How it works:
Like with UpCounsel, you start by filling out a form describing your legal preferences, including pricing needs (hourly, flat-rate, capped rate, contingency or subscription). Then, Priori Legal’s project managers select a list of vetted lawyers for you using their proprietary software. You review the profiles and pricing information, engage in free consultations, then hire.
