Meeting the Needs of Self-Represented Litigants in Family Law
Welcome to the Law Office of Michelle C. Hopkins. At our firm, we strive to create meaningful access to the family law courts for low and moderate income families. Many families are stuck between having too much money for free legal services and not having enough money for traditional full service attorney representation. The cost of legal services leaves families no choice but to struggle alone with the legal, financial, and emotional challenges of a family law case. Our office breaks down financial barriers by offering professional and affordable limited scope legal services to the community.
We cut through confusing family law court processes and procedures. We listen to your concerns and our legal analysis will identify practical solutions. We empower all our clients with knowledge of the law and their legal options so they can successfully navigate the system. We offer reduced hourly rates on a case by case basis and the potential for fixed fees after the initial case assessment. Clients pay only for the legal services they need when they need them. Our “pay as you go” business model provides financial certainty about attorney fees and court costs.
Please feel free to contact us for a legal consultation. We look forward to providing you with compassionate, expert, and affordable legal services.
