How To Get An Affordable Lawyer

2. We assume that lawyers are always expensive.
This is especially true when you don’t know what exact services they’ll be providing or how much the final bill will be.
And sometimes, when you think about what you need a lawyer to do, there may be part of that list that makes you think, "Well...I could do that part on my own."
That's why we have changed the traditional ways people find - and pay for - lawyers.
Paying-per-legal task vs. paying for everything
Sometimes, you don't need a lawyer to do every-little-thing. For example, when some people buy a house, they feel comfortable reading offer letters and negotiating a price. But they may not feel comfortable reading and signing all of the closing documents.
At Court Buddy, we ask people to pay per legal service, instead of paying for every step in the larger legal issue.
As Court Buddy’s Chief Legal Officer Jennifer McGlone explains, “The American Bar Association has made recommendations that attorneys offer unbundled services to clients, which would allow attorneys to carve out specific pieces of work that clients need the most. Clients can then pay these defined services at defined prices.”
Doing this demystifies the work that attorneys do. It also helps clients feel more secure in their legal cases, because they better understand what their attorneys are working on.
Expanding access to justice in this way is Court Buddy’s mission.
Our price structure
We offer specific legal services at specific prices, so that clients know exactly how much they’re paying and what assistance they’ll be receiving.
Our attorneys also do not charge retainers or hourly fees, unlike many law firms. Retainers and hourly fees can add up to thousands over time, which make it difficult for people to access justice in their cases.
Whether you need a family lawyer, criminal defense lawyer, or a business lawyer, Court Buddy can help connect you with an attorney who can best help you.
