Up-Front Fees

Hiring an attorney can be intimidating.  The process and expense of it is too often shrouded in mystery.  You may call several law firms and attorneys, and sit through multiple free consultations, only to find out their fee or retainer minimum is more than you can afford.  JLT Law is dedicated to making justice through legal representation accessible, which is why all fees are clearly communicated UP FRONT, with no secret negotiations or "sales pitch."  

Representation is valuable.  No one seeks counsel unless they absolutely need it, so why hide the price?  That is also why JLT Law offers flat fees and limited scope representation when it fits the situation.

Monthly Matter Advocate

30-Day Flat Fee, Full Representation

The Monthly Advocate subscription provides legal representation in a single legal matter, without the burden of a large retainer up front.  A pre-paid, recurring fee of $1,250.00 provides for attorney availability and representation for THIRTY DAYS, including document preparation & review; on-call counsel; representation in communication with opposing counsel/party; representation in alternative dispute resolution and in court; and all mileage and copies for the single matter agreed upon by you and JLT Law. 

Call for a Free Consultation to see if this subscription is the right fit for you and your case. 

Monthly Advocate Subscription

$1,250 per month

This subscription requires a three-month commitment and ends at pre-trial.  The 30 day fee does not include mileage charges for trips of more than 50 miles, filing fees, or fees of other professionals.  Requires a signed Representation Agreement.

Estate Planning

Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning, Probate Packages

The flat fee for Estate Planning services includes:

An initial meeting to discuss your personal situation and your estate planning goals; Review and analysis of your family and asset information; Preparation of first drafts of your estate planning documents, which will be legally sound and reflect all the information you have provided; A “review meeting” to discuss the first drafts and any revisions you may wish to make; Preparation of the final drafts, suitable for signing; and A final meeting or signing ceremony to execute your documents.

JLT Law offers three levels of bundled estate planning services, depending on your goals and assets.  Call for a Free Consultation to see which Level of estate planning is the right fit for you and your family.

Evergreen Retainer

The Traditional Way to Secure Representation

The Evergreen Retainer is an upfront investment of minimum $5,000.00 which is held in trust and used to pay the cost of services, fees, and expenses on a monthly basis.  When the balance falls below $1,000.00, payment must be made to replenish the amount held in trust to $1,000.00.  This minimum is valid through pre-trial.  

Should your matter proceed to trial, a retainer of $10,000.00, with an evergreen balance of $2,500, will be required before JLT Law begins trial preparation.

Call for a Free Consultation to see if a traditional, evergreen retainer is the right fit for you and your case.

Trusted Advisor

Monthly Subscription

The law is everywhere. Things happen that we know will have consequences, but what? And how?

The Trusted Advisor subscription is like having a lawyer in the family.  It's designed for quick answers to vexing legal questions such as, "Do I have a case?" "Is this a scam?" "Can they come after me for that?" "Do I need a lawyer?"

For a low, monthly fee you can have someone to call with those questions that keep you up at night. Someone to look over that "too good to be true" offer or email you just got.

Large, national websites like "Jet Lawyer" or "Legal Whoosh" can't give you the personalized service a licensed, local lawyer can provide. Don't you sometimes wish you had a lawyer in the family?  A trusted advisor you could call for advice?

Monthly Advisor Subscription

$50.00 per month ($600.00)

Does not establish an attorney-client relationship; does not include any court appearances or pleadings; minimum twelve month subscription required.

Limited Scope Representation

All the Counsel You Need, When You Need It

Minnesota has made it possible for attorneys to represent clients in a limited scope - for just one matter, one document, one demand letter, one mediation, one hour - you name it.  If you need a document drafted or reviewed, or need an attorney by your side for just one hearing (not trial, mind you), Limited Scope Representation may be all you need.

Call for a Free Consultation to see if limited scope representation is the right fit for your situation.
