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 commercial litigation attorneys, you can spend more time worrying about growing your business, and less worrying about legal issues.

The Start

First, you speak with our Business Development Team. During that conversation, the representative will learn more about your business, you needs, and determine how our attorneys can best assist you. They'll create a custom quote for you and collect the appropriate deposit. 


You are fully protected by our 100% Money-Back Guarantee.

If, for any reason, after meeting with our attorneys in the kickoff meeting, you do not wish to continue with our services or we advise you that your matter is not in your best interest to pursue, we will immediately process a full refund of any deposit or fees paid.

What They Say.

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.

After researching many of the Business Law firms in Orlando, we ultimately selected Forward Law to represent us. I had confirmation this was the right choice when one of our investors indicated that their attorney felt our Offering Documents were among the most through they had ever seen. You should get what you pay for and we certainly did. I highly recommend you have them at your side.

How much does it cost? 

Disputes can have a range of pricing. The vast majority of these matters are handled hourly as every situation, opposing party, opposing counsel, and legal issue are different. Our firm always recommends the lowest cost plan of action first, then based on the outcome, may recommend more significant steps. We know how expensive litigation can be, and do our best to keep you out of a courtroom. 

Once a complaint is filed with the court, attorney costs do escalate as this part of the process is extremely intensive. While most of our disputes that we handle are vastly under $10,000. Once a trial set, statistically that number can reach into the hundreds of thousands very easily. The vast majority of this work is in the beginning and during trial. We've compared rates previously with other commercial litigation attorneys with similar fact patterns, and due to our strategies and experience, we tend to be about half the cost of other firms in the end. 

Will you take my case after another attorney? 

Our goal is to provide our litigation services that we can feel confident in. When we receive a case that has been handled by another attorney, they may have taken completely different steps from what our process would be. Litigation can also span years, with all of those documents needing to be re-reviewed by our firm. This makes it not only vastly more expensive for our clients, but adds significant amounts of time and makes it far more difficult for our team to achieve your objectives. We are very selective on the cases we take on after another attorney. If you're in this situation, contact our Business Development Team and they are happy to speak with you to see if we can take on your case. 

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.
