    Guaranteed Low Hourly Rates:
    Plan attorneys have contracted to charge 40% off their normal hourly rate, with a minimum of $125 per hour, for legal care beyond the free and discounted services. 

    In the case of extended legal care, plan attorneys may ask you for a retainer. Any retainer sought will be computed by multiplying the number of hours a plan attorney believes a case will take, by the appropriate discounted hourly plan rate. For instance: 10 hours x $125.00 = a retainer of $1,250.00.

    Contingency Fee Discounts:

    The contingency fee discount will be a 10% reduction of the state maximum rate or the attorney's usual rate, whichever is lower.

    Online Forms:  Access to a wide-ranging selection of free self-service forms that may be downloaded and completed to create legally valid documents.  Forms are state specific and include:
