What are some of the benefits?

As a plan member, the attorney will provide:

  • Nine free services, such as the preparation of a simple will (along with annual updates), unlimited consultations per new legal matter, review of important legal documents per new legal matter (six page max.) and many others.
  • Eight deeply discounted services, such as $275 for a simple divorce, $750 for filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy, $250 for a real estate closing, to name just a few.
  • All extended service and in-court representation is available for $125.00 per hour, or 40% off the usual and customary hourly rate, whichever is greater. This is a tremendous savings over the national average of $210 per hour.
  • Contingency fees (if any) are at a 10% reduction of the state’s maximum rate, or the attorney’s usual rate, whichever is lower.
