Extra Hands

We provide research and legal services at a regular hourly rate. If you need additional help for frequent legal issues, we also offer subscription-based research and legal services.

A subscription service gives you access to an on-call advisor able to dig into complex questions and find creative solutions. It’s extra hands without the hassle, ready to get to know you and your goals. 

Base fee

Unless an alternative fee arrangement is made in advance, non-subscription rates are established for each patron.

Sliding scale: $100-175 / hour.
