Risk Exists Everywhere

As a business owner, risk can be found virtually everywhere. Statistically, anywhere between 35% -53% of small businesses are engaged in at least one case over the course of a year. At any time, 90% of all businesses are engaged in litigation.*

Litigation is expensive, and can deeply harm the longevity of your business. For any given case, regardless of the outcome, attorney's fees start at tens of thousands, if not hundreds. 

That's why it is so important for your contracts to cover all of these areas and eventualities. Avoiding litigation is a main tenet of our firm's beliefs. By hiring our experienced employment attorneys, you can spend more time worrying about growing your business, and less worrying about legal issues.

Jared helped my wife and I with a business and real estate transaction after he was recommended by author/lawyer Joel Ankney.

He showed a strong commitment and ability to adapt throughout the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for legal assistance.

How much does it cost? 

The cost of employment representation can vary depending on several factors, such as the complexity of the case or type of matter, the experience and reputation of the attorney or law firm, and the specific services required. Different matters may have different fee structures, including hourly rates, flat fees, or contingency fees, depending on the nature of the representation. Set up a time to speak with us to discuss your matter, and receive an estimate.  Remember that investing in quality employment representation can help protect your interests, mitigate legal risks, and potentially save you significant costs in the long run.

Why do you require deposits?

Simply put, we want to be a transparent as possible with our pricing. The deposits we take generally reflect either the full cost of the service for flat fees, or a the first section of the project for hourly fees. This means that our potential clients have a good understanding of the fees associated before the service even starts. Additionally, requiring these deposits allows our attorneys more time to focus on client work, and provide that extra meeting, or work ahead of schedule. 

We still understand how it can be intimidating to hire an attorney without meeting them first. That's why we offer a 100% Money-Back Guarantee. If you do not wish to continue with our services after the first meeting with the attorney for any reason, or our attorneys inform you that your matter may not be worth pursuing, we will provide a full refund. 

Do you offer financing options? 

We offer ClientCredit through our payment processor, who is partnered with Affirm to provide this service. This allows our clients to pay in smaller amounts over time. While we offer this as a payment option, please be advised that we have no control over the qualification process.
