A: The problem of finding the funds to retain an attorney is commonly a source of great anxiety for family law litigants. Not having an attorney can have negative life altering economic consequences, particularly in divorce. It certainly has emotional consequences because at times the law seems impossible to decipher and you have no idea how Family Court operates. You know you need a family law attorney, but this takes money. Fortunately for you, we offer affordable rates.
Q: Does Agape Law Firm provide military discounts?
A: Yes, in appreciation for all the military men and women who have served this country, we provide discounts for all active and retired military members.
Q: I would like legal help, but I would like limited representation and select document preparation. How can I get legal representation without paying a large retainer?
A: Unbundled legal service is a new concept concerning how lawyers can represent clients in a limited manner. Traditionally, if a lawyer represented you, she was retained to manage your entire case from beginning to end. Today's legal market has evolved, such that clients may choose to hire a lawyer for one specific purpose and paying only for the one service provided, instead of paying a large retainer to manage an entire case.
If you would like to retain Agape Law Firm to help you with a specific aspect of your case, we will charge you for that specific service. If there are documents that need to be prepared for the court, they may be prepared for you in “Pro Per” (meaning that you are representing yourself), or with the Firm as your attorney, for just that aspect of your case. We can also appear on your behalf at the court.
Examples of unbundled services are:
- Sending a letter to reach a resolution of your dispute.
- Preparing a Petition or a Response.
- Preparing a brief and/or attending a Mediation, Settlement conference, or arbitration.
- Requesting or responding to discovery requests.
- Filing or responding to noticed motions
- Ex parte hearings and Orders to Show Cause.
- Pretrial preparation, including Trial Readiness Conference & Motions in Limine.
- Appearing at a deposition.
- Preparing a Declaration of Disclosure.
- Preparing a Judgment or Marital Settlement Agreement.
This is not an exhaustive list. We can unbundle any aspect of your case. If you do not see your specific need listed, please contact Agape Law Firm and we will tell you how we are able to help you.
