Good News for US-based Independent Contract Lawyers and Hiring Attorneys

The American Bar Association's Ethics and Professional Responsibility Committee recently released an opinion regarding law firms using contract lawyers for various tasks.  The ABA stated that when hiring a contract attorney, the use of attorneys who have been trained in the United States is preferable.  However, if you wish to hire an attorney who is based in another country, be sure to check out the statutes in that country regarding property seizures, disclosures, and the remedies used if there is a dispute between yourself and the contract attorney.  In this age of downsizing, becoming a contract attorney might not be all bad.
