Today, over 35% of all businesses will be sued, with the average cost of litigation reaching over $100,000 (Fullbright Laworski, LLP)
Today, it is critical for businesses to legally protect themselves, yet many simply cannot afford the hourly rates charged by law firms.
Developed by Rob, Legal Access is a new and innovative way for businesses to access legal services without financially crippling their businesses with exorbitant legal fees. The program offers businesses a set number of hours that are purchased in advance at discounted hourly rates and used as needed throughout the year. Businesses can select the package and hours that best fit their needs- from 10 to as many hours they wish.
Although every one of the Firm’s clients receives the utmost quality of service, there are certain differences for clients who subscribe to Legal Access. Paying for Legal Access is like paying for in-house legal counsel. Companies pay enormous sums of money to have teams of lawyers at their beck and call, whether it is for reviewing a contract, or “just in case”. When a business owner needs a lawyer to double check a contract, to answer a quick question, or run a checklist on a new agreement they are charged by the individual hour and need to update their lawyer on every issue. Many people consult and retain an attorney becausesomething happened. People who buy Legal Access packages do so primarily sosomething doesn’t happen; it is like buying your own in-house attorney at a fraction of the cost.
Legal Access was designed to be as flexible and convenient in every manner possible. The Firm refers our clients to carefully selected people who practice in areas of the law that fall out of our realm of specialty, such as tax, securities, criminal and other specialized fields of the law. Although we may need to refer our client, we can also continue to oversee their interests and remain by their side.
