A ghost lawyer is a lawyer who writes for other lawyers without assuming credit. Ghost lawyers often offer their services to other lawyers who need help on a project-by-project basis without wanting to take on a full associate. There are concerns about the ethics of ghost lawyers with regard to pro se litigants, but most states permit the practice.[1][2]
