Contract Attorney


A lawyer typically hired by a law firm to handle a specific case or several cases. The attorney agrees to do the work pursuant to an agreement he or she has with the hiring firm or attorney. It is often less costly for the law firm since it does not have the usual overhead of a salaried employee.
