And we know small business owners do, too. We want you to call whenever you need us, for matters big or small, without worrying about the ticking billable hour clock.

That's why we developed Legal Subscriptions and Flat Fees for most services.

To support your growth, we developed Legal Subscriptions to deliver affordable, dependable legal services for a set monthly fee. 

We have three levels to choose from, each offering you a menu of legal services for a fixed cost each month--emails, phone calls, and monthly check-ins included.

We’ve created an all-inclusive fee schedule for our most-requested contracts and dispute resolution techniques so you can know the all-in cost at the beginning of the project. And yes, emails and phone calls with your attorney are included, here too. From reviewing and negotiating a commercial lease to drafting a services agreement, we have a flat fee to fit your needs.

"This firm is run with sincere honesty and integrity. By the time we resolved our case, Stephanie and Sarah felt like family. They were so easy to work with and always offered the best advice and direction. We were amazed with each draft and deposition's detail and professionalism. They really worked hard to get us the result we were looking for. We were definitely happy we chose Melnick & Melnick, S.C. to fight our case!"
