A la carte consultation services

Helping you navigate the Small Claims Court process, so you can represent yourself with confidence.

As a paralegal practicing in the small claims court, I often receive phone calls from people requesting representation whom I must turn away due to the dollar value of their claim. I turn them away as my fees would outweigh any possible return they are likely to receive. Some individuals or organizations attempt to navigate the court process on their own as they cannot afford the help of a representative.

To address this problem and try to ensure that individuals and organizations can pursue their claims confidently and effectively, even if they have to represent themselves, I have decided to offer an a la carte consultation services.

For a very reasonable fee I will help you navigate the Small Claims Court process so you can represent yourself with confidence.These services are also provided to individuals and organizations defending claims.
