Fees:

In order to maintain the financial integrity of our program, empower our clients to participate in their case responsibly and in a dignified manner, and to encourage the participation of local attorneys, we ask that every client contribute based on their ability to contribute.  Therefore, we do charge a nominal fee in most situations.  However, we do have an application for a fee waiver for certain individuals and households with extenuating circumstances.  In order to determine a fair rate for the legal services provided, we need you to be completely honest and forthcoming about your financial situation which will be assessed from information provided on the application.
