I get it. You need a lawyer and lawyers are expensive. My services are not free and they certainly cost more than going it alone, but I charge less than most.
Mathews Law seeks to provide legal services for those who cannot afford to pay fees charged by most lawyers but also who do not qualify for free legal services.
Committed to Lower Hourly Rates
I’m committed to keeping my fees affordable. My hourly rate will never exceed $200 per hour (most attorneys’ fees range from $350-$550 per hour).
When the service calls for it, I charge flat fees which are below the market rate and which are posted here so that clients know what they will pay before our very first meeting.
Mathews Law meets with clients virtually when possible which reduces overhead costs but still provides clients with high-quality service. However, in-person meetings are great, too!
Electronic Document Preparation
You can sign your contract with Mathews Law and pass documents back and forth electronically through secure email or Dropbox. This saves time and cost.
Mathews Law employs wonderful support staff who work virtually to keep costs low. Mathews Law charges lower hourly rates for their work on your case.
Most cases can and should settle out of court. Mathews Law is prepared to represent you in court and will aggressively represent you if that’s where we end up. But I always discuss the pros and cons of taking your case to court and ask clients to consider cost and stress in that equation. If appropriate for the situation, Mathews Law believes in helping parties come to agreements they are satisfied with for the lowest cost possible.
Mathews Law can mediate your conflict and help the parties come to an agreement that avoids court entirely, if possible. Mathews Law cannot give legal advice to the parties in mediation and instead serves as a neutral support to help you find peace.
