Service Packages

BE A RATIONAL UNICORN

Our flat-fee, project-based pricing is pay as you go. We aim to make legal services attainable for everyone in the community, so we don’t require you to deposit a large retainer just to be able to get started.

During potential-client consultations and client meetings, we listen, learn, and discuss potential options for moving forward. You’ll be quoted a price for each project. You’ll decide how you’d like to move forward, either right then or after thinking it over. When you choose to proceed, just let us know which project(s) you have in mind, and we’ll bill you accordingly. Once your invoice(s) are paid, we will calendar your project(s) on our production calendar and get to work.

Check out our three most-popular legal packages to find the right one for you:

Note: A standard mark that is (a) your business name and (b) your logo is two separate filings, which would be covered by this service.
