Presenting, Modifying, & Withdrawing Cases

When presenting a case, you will be providing information and answering questions that will help lawyers who make responses to your case get a complete and accurate picture of your matter. Because this is an anonymous process, your name will not be revealed to any of the bidding lawyers. When describing your case, please remember not to give any confidential information, such as names.

Presenting a Case

When presenting a case, you will:

How to Present a Case

You should register and log in before presenting a case. If you do not, you will be prompted to do so after you describe your case.

  1. Click Present Your Case on any LegalMatch page.
  2. The Case Detail page will open, and prompt you to our case intake questions.
  3. Follow the instructions on each page to describe your case.
  4. When finished, click Submit.

After you Present your Case

Once your case is presented, qualified registered lawyers will receive email notification that a new case has been presented. Lawyers will then review your case and decide whether or not to make a response.

When lawyers make a response on your case, you will receive email notification and be able to review the response.

Modifying or Withdrawing a Case

It is important that the lawyers making responses on your case have as much updated and accurate information as possible. Every fact is important to a lawyer when assessing your case. Therefore, you should feel comfortable modifying your case if you need. You may also withdraw your case at any time if you do not wish to continue the matching process.

If any responses have been made on your case before you modify it, those responses will be marked "inactive" and will automatically be withdrawn. LegalMatch will notify the lawyers who made responses on your case that you have made modifications. Lawyers can then change the terms of their responses to reflect your changes or resubmit their responses with their original terms.
