Legal Action Workshop is a law firm with over 35 years’ experience. L.A.W. has developed an Attorney-assisted method for divorce and family law that allows you to save money while having Attorney oversight. With our low flat fee option, you do not have to guess what you will be paying for your legal matter and most importantly you get legal advice and legal oversight throughout. We offer low flat fees in the area of divorce and family law, bankruptcy and estate planning.
Our flat fee system gives you a great deal of flexibility. You can sign up online and we call you to schedule your consultation with the Attorney or you can call us to schedule a consultation and ask any questions you may have. Our physical office is in Glendale, California in Los Angeles County. Our phone consultations with the Attorney allow you to handle your legal matter throughout CA without the need to come into our office.
Legal Action Workshop is a flat fee law firm. In contrast, most other law firms charge a retainer fee that is based on an hourly rate of anywhere between $250 per hour to $500+ per hour. These Attorneys cannot tell you what your legal matter will ultimately cost. They charge you each time they speak with you or review your file. The ‘hourly fee method’ results in a much higher cost for divorce & family law matters. However, with Legal Action Workshop you know what you will be spending. Our experienced Lawyers offer low flat fees and counsel you throughout the process.
Legal Action Workshop is a law firm and as such can legally advise clients and give Attorney oversight to all legal matters. A document service cannot give you legal advice and simply gives you documents or fills them out for you. In addition, most document services do not help with the process in the courts which is difficult. L.A.W. offers legal advice & options as well as prepares paperwork and handles the process.
Yes, you will begin each legal matter with a private consultation with the Attorney. When you become a divorce client you can speak with the Attorney as needed at no extra cost. Your Attorney will advise you and oversee your case for a low flat fee.
We help people with divorce and family law which includes legal separation, annulment, paternity actions, orders to modify spousal support or child support, custody and/ or visitation as well as adoptions, guardianships and name changes. In addition we also help with bankruptcy, probate and estate planning. Call us for more information on our services.
Legal Action Workshop has devised an ‘attorney-assisted’ method for divorce, legal separation, annulment, paternity actions, adoption, guardianship, changes to court orders and name changes. The method includes Attorney consultations, Attorney oversight, preparation of legal documents and filing and serving of documents. The client’s name appears on the paperwork as ‘Attorney of record’. This means that the Attorney is not ‘fully representing’ the client and as such does not charge a retainer or hourly rates. By using this method, the client gets Attorney advice and oversight as well as paperwork completed for a low flat fee. If you feel that your legal matter is more complicated and requires ‘full representation’ we can usually help with this as well at our reasonable hourly rate.
We can schedule a consultation with the Attorney the same business day or next business day. Your first step is to either sign up online or call us so that we can determine what is needed. We will then make a time for you to speak with the Attorney either by phone or face-to-face in our Glendale CA location.
We can help with divorce, legal separation, annulment, paternity actions and responses as well as changes to existing court orders throughout California. This means that child support, child custody as well as spousal support issues can be addressed throughout California from our office in Glendale. We also handle step-parent and adult adoptions as well as bankruptcy in Los Angeles County. Typically, we arrange a consultation with the Attorney over the phone so that clients can get sound legal advice from their home or office. Remember, all counties in California operate under the same CA laws so we can advise and process paperwork throughout the state.
We have Attorneys who can go to court for you for flat fees in Southern California. These ‘limited scope’ Attorneys will fully represent you while in court. After the hearing or trial the Attorney will no longer represent you. This is a great method for people who need an Attorney to represent them in court, where it is most important, but do not require full representation once the court session is over. Limited scope Attorneys save you money.
No, there are many legal matters that do not require a court appearance. Wills, trusts and powers of attorney are documents that do not require a court appearance. When family law matters are resolved by way of an agreement a court appearance is usually not necessary. Further, in areas such as divorce, in which there are no issues to address and a response is not filed, a court appearance is usually not necessary.
