How can you make representing moderate income families work for your family law practice? Join our panel of experienced family law attorneys to learn how you can expand your practice to cover clients with moderate incomes.
There are different options for clients with limited means and this program explores them with you. Is limited assistance representation a good choice for the client’s needs or not? Can you help clients “pick up the pieces” after they have unsuccessfully tried to represent themselves? Learn how to assess the case and determine what steps will be necessary while keeping the client’s budget in mind. From the first meeting with the client to low-cost discovery options, this program helps you help others.
Learn how to define “moderate income,” which may vary depending on your community and local resources, and how to talk with clients about how best to leverage the optionsavailable to them within their budgets.
Help create a roadmap for your modest income client to move forward using efficiencies in your own practice, so the client gets through the legal process in a cost-conscious manner.
