Family Law Clinic

LIFE IS FULL OF SURPRISES.  What if you get into a car accident today, or a loved one passes away, or your landlord gives you an eviction notice with seven days to vacate your apartment?  Would you seek help from a lawyer?  If not, under what circumstances would you seek help from a lawyer?

What discourages you from seeking legal help?  We want to know.

Do you think that lawyer fees are too high for the average person to pay?
How much do you think a lawyer in a smaller law firm charges per hour for legal services?
How much would you be willing to pay for professional legal services?
If legal services were offered at a set price (flat fee), would you be more willing to seek help from a lawyer?
If legal services were offered à la carte where you could pick and choose which services you wanted to pay for and which services you would perform yourself (this is known as “unbundled legal services”), would you be more willing to seek help from a lawyer?
