Flat Fee Representation

Too many people in need of legal representation struggle to represent themselves because they feel that they cannot afford to hire an attorney. When faced with a retainer, high hourly rates, and no way of knowing how many hours will accumulate on their bill, very few people believe that they can afford to hire an attorney. Attorney Karen Lane offers flat fee representation because she believes her clients deserve high-quality, expert legal representation that they can afford, without having to wonder what it will cost in the end.

Flat fee representation is not new, it was the standard up until the latter half of the 20th century. Attorney Karen Lane believes that the billable hour system detracts from both the quality of service and nurturing of the attorney-client relationship. In today’s world, you need to know what to expect, how much it will cost, and how to budget for it. And you deserve access to quality legal representation for a fair price.

Budget cuts have made it increasingly difficult for individuals to represent themselves in Massachusetts Probate Courts. There has been a huge increase in the amount and complexity of the documentation that litigants are required to file. You need affordable help now, more than ever! By providing flat fee services, Attorney Karen Lane can give you the help that you need without the worry of unpredictable attorney’s fees. She has found that flat fee representation builds trust and long-lasting client relationships, enabling clients to receive professional and affordable legal representation that is fair and equitable both to her clients and to her firm.

While there are some types of cases for which flat fee billing is not appropriate, for many types of cases an experienced attorney knows what will be involved and can offer a flat fee based on what the case should cost. Examples of the types of cases that Attorney Karen Lane handles on a flat fee basis include:

  • Divorce and Family Mediation
  • Uncontested divorce
  • Divorces for middle-class wage earners
  • Guardianships
