Our Services

We’ll say it—we hate the billable hour. A model that discourages you from asking for help makes no sense.  And what’s more, we know you hate hourly billing, too—it’s unpredictable and not budget-friendly, neither of which work for small businesses. So, we ditched it. The old way doesn’t work for small business, so we found a new way. And the new way applies to most of our services:

  • Trademark Registration—what is a trademark, why register it, how does registration work, and what are the risks of not registering.
  • Contracts Galore—partnership agreements, terms of sale (for goods or services, sold online or not), wholesale agreements, consignment agreements, purchase agreements, employment agreements, independent contractor agreements, privacy policies, consulting agreements, licensing agreements, creative services agreements, commercial leases, and more. Find a template in our Contract Store to get you started or reach out to talk about a contract customized for your business—and yes, you guessed it, for an all-inclusive flat fee.
  • Dispute Resolution—as hard as we try to avoid them, disagreements are part of doing business. We’ll help you resolve them, short of litigation whenever possible. But know, when litigation is necessary, we have the experience and knowledge to go there strategically, keeping in mind your goals and budget.

Bring your ideas, challenges, and questions to us. We’ll help you solve the puzzle, walk through options, and decide how to get you from here to there legally, and at an all-inclusive (yep, that means calls and emails, too) fixed monthly fee or project-based flat fee. Budget-friendly and predictable—just how we like it. Sounds different from the lawyers you’ve worked with before? We hope so.


Larger businesses have easy access to legal advice and support. Why shouldn’t small business have it, too? With our Legal Subscriptions, you’ll add an attorney to your team at a fixed and transparent monthly fee. The most popular options are:

  • Fern $250/month and includes a Legal Business Review, monthly check-in calls, email support about business-related issues, and review of contracts three pages or less. Plus, you have nothing to lose because if no questions or contracts come up, we’ll apply the fees paid to templates in our contract store or other flat fee or hourly projects. (An initial three-month commitment is required.)
  • Orchid $2,000/month for all calls and emails, unlimited revisions to longer contracts (25 pages or less), customized contract or trademark registration application included upon enrollment and again after six months. (Six-month minimum commitment required.)
  • Iris $7,500/month for a personalized, inclusive legal solution for your fast-growing business at a set monthly fee. No clock, no surprises, just friendly service from knowledgeable and pleasant attorneys. (Three-month minimum commitment is required.)

Switch between Legal Subscriptions as your needs change. And we’ll only perform additional services if you approve them in advance. We promise.

This firm is run with sincere honesty and integrity. By the time we settled 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 to fight our case!
