There is an active Oregon Contract Lawyers community. When I first came to this state I thought they were contract lawyers, not Contract Lawyers. See the difference? No? Neither did I, but then I did. You see, sometimes lawyers need lawyers on a contract basis (not just for work on legal contracts :-), sometimes just for legal research, and sometimes for specialized legal work. Large law firms and small law firms, and everything in between, use Contract Lawyers. One place for lawyers to find contract lawyers is through the OWLs (Oregon Women Lawyers) Contract Lawyers Service.
