Signing up for an LawTap Lawyer account is the first step to listing your law firm on LawTap.
Each law firm has a single LawTap lawyer account to which it can invite as many lawyers and legal professionals as are necessary.
In this article, we explain the nature of LawTap Lawyer accounts and provide instructions on how to sign up for LawTap on behalf of your firm.
How LawTap Lawyer accounts work
LawTap Lawyer accounts are designed to accommodate law firms of all sizes—from sole practitioners to huge firms with 100s of lawyers.
On LawTap, each law firm has a single account and the sign-up process typically includes the following flows:
1. The practice manager signs up for a LawTap Lawyer account (instructions below).
2. The practice manager invites the lawyers and other members of the firm to join the LawTap Lawyer account.
3. Individual lawyers accept their invitation and sign up for their own account, which is linked to, and managed through, the main LawTap Lawyer account.
All individual legal professionals have a dedicated area in LawTap—My Dashboard—in which they can manage their lawyer profile and appointments. Each professional signs in to LawTap with their own credentials (email address and password), which they set during their sign-up process.
Lawyers who are NOT also practice managers, only need to follow the instructions for step 3 in Accepting an invitation to sign up for LawTap as a lawyer. Sole practitioners, who are typically both managers and lawyers, will usually need to only follow the instructions below in this article, and can ignore steps 2 and 3 above.
