Frequently Asked Questions

At Community.lawyer, we believe strongly in the work that local legal networks like bar associations and incubators are doing to connect the public with qualified lawyers ― and we never want cost to stand in the way of supporting that mission.

That's why, in addition to our paid Standard Plan, we offer our Free Plan, which has no setup or licensing fee. The Free and Standard Plans both include the major feature sets like branded intake website, attorney accounts, and administrator dashboard.

The Standard Plan also includes a Monthly Uptime Guarantee of 99.9% and a 24/7 Priority Technical Support Guarantee, as well as a growing list of enhanced features. Among these enhanced features are: (1) an API that makes your service connectable to outside web platforms (e.g. Salesforce and legal triage portals); (2) integrations with customizable document assembly offerings; and (3) functionality to process payments and automate billing for annual and/or membership dues.

Standard plan pricing varies depending on the each network's specific implementation. Contact us by clicking the "Schedule demo" button to receive a quote.

Community.lawyer also has a number of partners with portals that will be launching in the next few months.

We understand that each of our partners -- be they a bar association, legal incubator, or other kind of legal network -- has its own unique constellation of needs and goals. For that reason, our software provides a wide range of different customizations, including optional features for collecting payment by check and/or credit card, integrating reduced fee panels, and online intake modules for self-referral and staff-review.

Our platform supports a variety of integrations that ensure your Community.lawyer portal works in concert with other systems upon which your organization relies. Currently, our platform integrates with database solutions like Aptify, YourMembership, and CiviCRM, as well as leading payment processors like Authorize.Net, AffiniPay/LawPay, Stripe, and PayPal. Database integrations may involve an additional fee.

At Community.lawyer, we take data security extremely seriously. That's why we have implemented industry-standard data security protocols like database encryption and SSL. When processing payments, we never store or transmit sensitive financial data because we integrate directly with the PCI-compliant payment processor of your choice.
