Family Law
First, for pro se (without an attorney) clients, I help client(s) make decisions, including, if necessary, referral to a mediator or attorney, research legal and factual issues, write documents, help them file and serve the documents, and prepare them for court. The fee is $75 per hour and the deposit is $300 to $500. I offer low-income folks and musicians, dancers, and actors a discount to $60 per hour.

Second, for attorneys, I've conducted client intakes and other types of factual research, drafted pleadings and discovery, managed correspondence with all involved folks, and electronically and paper filed and served documents. The fee is negotiable and based on volume.

Basic Estate Law
I write basic estate documents, including wills, healthcare directives, and power of attorneys, help the client(s) make decisions on issues, including, if necessary, referring to an attorney for advice, help them file and serve the documents, and prepare them for court process. The fee is $35 - 50 per hour, depending on whether it is basic estate work or guardian/conservator work, and the deposit is $300 to $500. I offer low-income folks and musicians, dancers, and actors a discount to $30 - 40 per hour.
