We are looking to hire a New York lawyer to draw up some contracts for us. I tried to search freelancers by state, but this functionality is not available like on Elance. We can only search in North America.
We tried typing "lawyer NY" in the search box, but it brings out mostly irrelevant freelancers. I know there are lots of NY lawyers on this platform, but it's almost impossible to find them due to the search function not working and Upwork not having the appropriate filters.
Searching freelancers by specific location is a necessity. Has anyone figured out a workaround for this?
Open up Google.com, type your search term with quotes, say "lawyer new york city" and add site:upwork.com.
Example in bold: "lawyer new york city" site:upwork.com
Actually, same goes with Upwork; just go here and search with keywords in quotes, like "new york" "lawyer", and mash that search button. There's a ton of them.
