Help - Making, Modifying, Withdrawing Responses

Making a Response

To respond to a case with a description of your services, review a case and choose the form of your engagement: flat-fee, hourly rate, contingency or structured contingency fee, or any other fee arrangement you structure. When responding, you may also write a message directly to the client.

Modifying a Response

If the client has not yet accepted your terms, you may change the terms of your response. If a client changes anything about a case on which you responded, LegalMatch will send you an email notification that the facts of the case have changed. If you like, you may change the terms of your response to reflect the new or different facts of the client's case or resubmit your response with its original terms.

Things to Consider when Modifying a Response

The Rules of Professional Responsibility in your state may impact your ability to change a response. If the client viewed your response or you initially told the client that your response would be open for a certain period of time, you may be prohibited from modifying your response before that time expires.

If the client already accepted your terms or you initially told the client that your response would be open for a certain period of time, you may be prohibited from withdrawing your response.
