These five lawyers typify the lawyers who practice on a contract basis:

1. Katherine Meister has completed over 600 projects in the areas of personal injury, employment, family law and more since she started doing contract work in Portland, Oregon, in 1984. When she began her contract career, she had no law firm experience and was starting a family. First, she headed to the law library to check ads for legal research and writing services. Then she posted her own, making certain it looked better than the others. Word of mouth soon took over. For years she worked around her children's schedules, stopping daily when they returned from school.

Now that her children are grown, she has developed a portfolio career that includes career counseling and trial consulting, though she still loves contract research and writing and has no plans to stop.
