Options for Service:

  • Full scope, on the record -  This type of service is where our law office comes on the record to handle your legal action from start to finish. Full scope services require a larger upfront trust deposit because more work is anticipated.  See below for types of actions this law office handles.
  • Limited scope - Limited scope services are best when the cost of an attorney to come on the record is beyond a client's budget.  An agreement will be reached between the client and the law office for what specific services the attorney will provide for the client. Limited Scope services can include legal advice, document preparation, drafting of pleadings, filing, service, etc. This type of service may not include going on the record. See below for some examples of limited scope services for the various type of actions.
  • Modest Means: If your gross income per year is less than $60,000 and you have less than $100,000 in property excluding a primary residence and/or retirement plans you qualify for "Modest Means" rates. Please let the office know if this applies to you.
