Affording an attorney for your matter may be difficult or tricky, but we want to help as many people as possible. Lal Legal is a community-oriented law firm that strives to provide reliable and quality representation to all clients regardless of income level, with flexible payment plans.

We typically determine the legal fees at the end of our initial consultation.

Initial Consultation

At Lal Legal APLC, we understand that your time is valuable. We want to commit our time in getting to know you and examining the details of your case. Typically, clients are scheduled for an hour long consultation with the attorney at our Downtown Berkeley office or over the phone. During the consultation, our attorney screens you for all available forms of relief, provides you with critical information, and a roadmap with regards to your legal situation, which you typically do not get with a free consult. Our consultation fee is credited towards any legal fees we are contracted for in the future.

Flat-Fee

For most cases, after an initial consult with an attorney, we are happy to quote you one flat-fee and create a fee schedule, so you can budget your legal fees in advance. Keep in mind that some government forms and certain forms of relief may require application fees. Our fees include any copying, mailing, and similar costs so you don’t have to worry about them.

Hourly

We’re happy to provide services to you on an hourly basis. This is the least predictable option but for matters that do not require much time, this may be the most cost-effective for you.

Retainer

When it is difficult to forecast your legal needs or you need us to work on an as-needed basis, on ongoing matters or simply to serve as general counsel on some legal questions, having us on retainer often represents your best option.

We’ll work with you to figure out the best option for your legal needs. Contact us today for a consultation on how we can best serve you. 

We also accept cashier’s and personal checks, money orders, payment through Venmo, and most major credit cards. Most clients can pay their monthly bill for Lal Legal APLC through LawPay.
