Services

Melnick & Melnick, S.C. offers varied legal services for business, all with budget-friendly, no surprises project-based or monthly fees. Building reasonable legal fees into your budget gives you the freedom to plan ahead for the “what ifs,” for example:

  • What if my customer refuses to pay?
  • What if my partner wants to retire and move to Arizona?
  • What if a competitor uses my trademark on its website?

You focus on growing your business. Bring the questions, problems, and issues to us. Our Attorneys want to know about your business—what you do, why you do it, and how you manage it all. We’ll respond with prompt and pleasant service, in plain English.

Asked & Answered

Hourly billing forces clients to decide whether a call or email is worth the price tag. With Asked & Answered, no decisions are required—call or email anytime. The more we talk about your business challenges and successes, the better able we’ll be to craft tailored solutions.

Benefits of Asked & Answered
  • No meter running—we encourage you to call or email as often as you like.
  • No commitment required—cancel anytime.
  • No surprises—we’ll provide additional services only if you approve them.

All for $75 per month. In addition, if you hire us to provide services not included in Asked & Answered, we’ll discount our hourly rates 10%.

General Counsel Packages

Our Attorneys offer discounted rates to cater to our business clients who routinely need legal services. From filing annual reports to drafting contracts and consent resolutions, our General Counsel Packages can be used for any business-related projects.
