I worked at Update Legal as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

It's temporary work, so it's a race to the bottom. When I worked for Update Legal in 2009-2010, the Manager Laura was helpful. She secured me with a long-term contract.

Cons

Since Laura left in 2012, Update Legal has almost zero presence in the D.C. market. Their projects stunk in 2012. They let other Contract Attorneys acting as Team Leads fire other Contract Attorneys. Not professional. Update has no work anymore in D.C.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better contracts/projects, raise employee salaries, and do not rely on Contract Attorneys for management decisions.

    I worked at Update Legal as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are pretty good about follow-up, which is much better than many temp agencies. Everyone that I have worked with there has been very friendly and helpful. They are very accommodating and flexible with people's schedules.

    Cons

    Work is temporary and unstable. Like all contract attorney positions, the pay is not great. There is not much room for advancement or permanent work, so once an assignment ends you don't know how long it will be until the next one.
