Create a Profile as a Non Profit Member
Step 1: Visit the Non profit Page
Read the page to get an overview https://legalatoms.com/nonprofit/
Step 2: Click on “Create Account (Free)” button
Step 3: Register as a “Professional”
Step 4 Upload a Profile Picture
Please note: A profile picture greatly increases the chance of being selected by the client. However, you are not required to have one in case you don’t feel comfortable releasing one for privacy.
Step 5 Set Profession
Set the Profession as Nonprofit
Step 6 Write a blurb
Write a blurb which describes your role and organization
Step 7: Add Contact Information
In case you don’t have an office phone, then create a free Google Voice forwarding phone number to keep your personal phone number private
Step 7b: Address
Even if you work remotely please enter a reference address as this helps us show your profile to clients geographically closer to you
You can still specify later all the jurisdictions you provide your services in.
Step 8: Fill the Resume section (Optional)
Add with your relevant work experiences. This is an optional section but will really help build confidence with potential clients.
This helps with matching you with clients
Step 9: Set Practice Area
Set the practice area as “Domestic Violence”. You can set additional practice areas
The slider below the practice area is set at 100, you can leave it as it is.
Step 10: Recent Cases (Optional)
You can discuss any cases you have worked on without revealing any client information. This section helps with the matching of clients with legal professionals.
Step 11: Pricing
Try to structure your services as a plan whereby each plan would provide specifics as to
- Who qualifies
- What a client would get
- What case types does the plan apply to. A single plan (e.g. review case documents) may apply to multiple case types
- Which jurisdictions does the plan apply to. Right now county is the best abstraction of jurisdiction for state level cases.
Step 12: Connect your calendar (Optional)
LegalAtoms allows you to link your calendar so appointment requests can be made by the clients. At the moment only Google calendars are supported.
You have a fine set of controls for appointments such as
- Days of the week
- Start and end hours (e.g. Mon, Wed 12pm-2pm)
- Appointment duration
- Heads up you need (e.g. 1 day advanced notice)
- And a few other controls
Step 13: Preview
At this point you can preview your profile
Step 14: Make your profile Public
In the settings tab, you can turn on the first switch, and this just means that your profile will be discoverable.
Only when you turn on the next switch do we allow clients to send you requests.
Once a client sends you request, you will receive an e-mail notification. If you login, you will also see a facebook style notification.
