How Lawyers & Professionals Can Use Freelancing Platforms

How Lawyers & Professionals Can Use Freelancing Platforms


An interesting conversation with Kim’s divorce attorney, Kelsey Lewis, Esq, MSW, who is a full-time freelancer on Upwork. When Kim was sued for divorce she wanted to represent herself, but she had no idea where to start. So she went to Upwork and found Kelsey Lewis, a full-time freelancing attorney who had given up the traditional lawyer lifestyle to practice on her terms.

She had a rocky start, but now two years in, she makes more than double her past income working for a firm. Kim talks to Kelsey about how she started as a freelancer and what advice she has for other professionals that are tired of not living the lives they want. A fascinating conversation about what being a freelancing lawyer looks like in the 21st century.

Kelsey can be found on LinkedIn at and on Upwork at
