The Benefits of Delegating Your Substantial Legal Work to a Freelance Law Clerk

Law clerks provide assistance to lawyers by taking on tasks that the lawyers themselves would do in the absence of a law clerk. In litigation, this may involve anything other than providing legal opinion, which is of course, reserved for lawyers. Law clerks are involved in organizing, reviewing and analyzing the evidence. Law clerks assist lawyers by identifying gaps in the story as presented by the evidence, creating questions for further enquiry, speaking to witnesses, finding the right expert to provide an opinion or preparing the numerous documents that come with a lawsuit. evokate's freelance remote law clerk service provides lawyers anywhere with assistance in any aspect of litigation. From reviewing transcripts and preparing undertakings charts to reviewing an entire case to prepare a mediation argument, when you delegate an assignment to evokate, your own 'to-do' list improves!
