What Legal Experts are saying about JustAnswer 



"Personally, the flexibility is incredible. I work from home, I don't have to travel, there is no motion practice, no billing software, no mandatory meetings, and I get to do all of this while doing what I feel is important work. This is a very lucrative endeavor for me financially, which makes it even easier to show up here every day.”

Legal Eagle, Lawyer on JustAnswer since 2016



  The motivation I get from working with JustAnswer quite honestly is that every once in a while, I get customers who come back and tell me how much what I did for them helped...  However, working from a beach is also another satisfying thing about being able to keep working on JustAnswer.”
