We are enabling attorneys, firms, students, paralegals etc. to earn money off the sale of their legal documents that otherwise would have gone unused.

Nothing! Anyone can sell their case material and set their price for it. We will provide you with a framework of what we recommend you to charge for your materials but you set the initial asking price. Members of the website receive 60% of the transaction while non-members take home 40% of the materials sold on our marketplace.
Your revenue potential is limitless! You set the asking price for your materials and are able to adjust that price according to your sales flow. If a document is priced lower, you might find it sells more. However if you have a document that you feel is of particular specialization, you can set your initial asking price to be whatever you would like it to be. The more specialized material may call for a higher asking price based on supply and demand.

Yes. You may adjust the price of your documents as you see fit. As your products mature, you will receive price feedback in two manners. One, all the products on the marketplace are peer reviewed and supplemented by customer comments and follow up questions. Secondly, the Sellers Dashboard allows them to track sales, click traffic and overall popularity of their item based on search terms and keyword phrases. These two metrics will allow sellers to gauge whether or not their products are priced according to their demand, rarity and quality.
Yes. All ownership rights of products sold on the marketplace are retained by the initial seller.
Each seller is obligated to be aware of any state or federal disclosure guidelines. For state level products, the statutes and protocols differ in terms of what must be redacted from public documents. For example, in the state of Colorado any and all names of juveniles must be kept private on any public legal documents. Therefore if a Colorado-based attorney wants to upload a case file from a juvenile case, he or she must redact any instance of names listed on said document prior to upload. Each seller retains ownership of their products and therefore the sellers are liable for any wrongful disclosures of personal identity. If a seller has any questions regarding what, if any, information needs to be redacted from their products, they are encouraged to refer to their local legal statutes, or marketplace members can contact a sales advocate with any and all questions.

Our refund policy is as follows:
If there’s a problem with the resource you’ve purchased, you may request a refund for any of these reasons:
- The resource file is damaged or is missing content.
- The seller’s preview and/or description of the resource was misleading or misrepresentative.
- You’re unable to access a resource because the seller did not state technical requirements.
- You accidentally purchased a resource twice.
- Once in a while, a seller accidentally uploads the wrong file. In this case, all you need to do is contact us and we’ll ask the seller to upload the correct file. If the problem isn't resolved in a timely manner, we can cancel your order and refund you the purchase price.
Please keep in mind that outside of those reasons stated above, all sales on our marketplace are final. If you have general feedback regarding the item, consider sharing your thoughts with the seller on his or her profile page to help improve the overall quality of the product.
