After nearly a decade practicing “full scope” family law, it became apparent that that traditional model no longer works for most people who need help.
Full scope representation is when you hire an attorney to handle all aspects of your case - they normally file a notice of appearance or otherwise advise the Court that they are your “attorney of record” and thereafter receive all case-related correspondence, are responsible for managing the case, and the client’s involvement is reduced to a minimum. Most attorneys require a minimum fee deposit - generally in excess of $3500.00 or more - to undertake a full scope representation; frequently, that amount will be depleted and you will have to replenish. It is not uncommon for even simple cases that go to trial to cost upwards of $20,000.00 or more in fees and costs.
Most people cannot and/or do not want to spend $20,000.00 or more to end their marriage and resolve any custody, support, and property issues. With guidance from an attorney most people can, however, handle their own cases with more confidence and get better outcomes.
We have developed a boutique family law practice that caters to your individual needs and budget. Some clients just need an initial $150 flat fee consult - for others, after the initial consult, we tailor a set of additional services based on your needs and budget. This “limited scope representation” may include preparing your pleadings, assisting you to prepare for court, or it may include an ongoing consultation arrangement throughout the case. We have a wide range of both flat fee and hourly arrangements ranging from $150 to $2,500.00, depending on your needs.
The next step is to contact us for a consultation - There is no time like the present, reach out to us today.
