Montage Legal Group

Montage Legal Group is not a law firm or a staffing agency; rather, it uses a unique business model to give law firms access to a network of independent contractor freelance attorneys that handle temporary or contract legal work remotely on an hourly or project basis. Montage handles administrative and billing tasks, allowing law firms and freelance lawyers to focus on legal projects. Whether a law firm needs law and motion work, depositions, business documents, court appearances or document review — or needs expertise in a specialty practice — law firms can turn to Montage to find the exact type of freelance lawyer they need.
