Our fees reflect the belief that the poor deserves fair legal assistance also.
You shouldn't have to pay high legal fees for the work that a Para Legal or Legal Assistant does. Freedom Legal Pro Se fees are reasonable and affordable.
Everybody doesn’t need a high energy attorney to beat the snot out of an insurance company.
More often what people need, is a high energy legal assistant to help with their immigration case or child custody case or deposition.
Don’t pay for a room full of attorneys to argue your case when all you may need is a knowledgeable consultant to stand by your side.
Doesn’t it make sense, to hire an attorney whose fees are that of a legal assistant?

Divorce child support
If you're a parent going through a divorce, or if you have never been married to your child's other parent and are ending the relationship, you may need information about child support.
In Florida, both parents, whether married or not, are obligated to financially support their children. Florida follows the "Income Shares Model" which means that courts will estimate the amount parents would spend on children if the family were intact and living in one household, and then divide this amount between the parents based on their incomes.
Not all relationships end in happily ever after. When parents split up, they'll have to decide who gets custody of their children, and if they can't decide, a judge will. Although you should talk to an experienced family lawyer to help you navigate the complexities of custody, it's also important for you to know some basic terms so you can make informed decisions.
An order to pay child support can be changed (or modified) by the court or administrative agency that issued the order if the circumstances of either parent change after the order is issued. Until an order is changed, terminated or vacated, the amount ordered is owed and legally enforceable.
Immigration law refers to the national statutes, regulations, and legal precedents governing immigration into and deportation from a country. Strictly speaking, it is distinct from other matters such as naturalization and citizenship, although they are sometimes conflated.
A small claims case is a legal action filed in county court to settle minor legal disputes among parties where, as of January 1, 2020, the dollar amount involved is $8,000 or less, excluding costs, interest, and attorneys' fees. Forms that have been approved for statewide use are located within the Florida Small Claims Rules. The clerk of court may also be able to provide you with copies of appropriate forms.
Mediation is a way for people who are having a dispute to talk about their issues and concerns and to make decisions about the dispute with the help of another person (called a mediator). A mediator is not allowed to decide who is right or wrong or to tell you how to resolve your dispute. In mediation, you can try to find solutions that make sense to you and the other person in the dispute to resolve some or all of your concerns.
While the goal is to try to work something out, you may decide it would be better for you not to come to an agreement. Sometimes emotions may be driving the dispute which can make talking to the person or party with whom you are in a dispute difficult. A mediator can assist you in easing the way for communication. The mediator is there as a neutral person to help you focus on solving your dispute; however, the mediator is prohibited from providing therapy, counseling or legal advice.
The term of counsel refers to the description given to an attorney who is not the principal lawyer in charge of a case but who merely contributes his advice on the way it should be handled.
In a lawsuit, all named parties have the right to conduct discovery, a formal investigation, to find out more about the case. Pre-trial access to this information allows the parties to use facts and potential evidence to better define their strategies and avoid delays once the trial begins. In some cases, what's learned during discovery might even help the opposing sides come to a settlement without having to go to trial at all. Discovery can come in a number of different forms, with the most common being subpoenas for relevant documents, interrogatories (written questions), and depositions -- the taking of an oral statement of a witness before trial, under oath.
Whether a deposition is needed depends on the unique facts and circumstances of each case. Cases that involve only legal, not factual, issues usually don't require them since witness testimony and other evidence isn't relevant to these decisions. In many lawsuits, however, depositions play an important role in painting a more complete picture of the events in question.
