Get Affordable Help from Licensed Attorneys When You Need it Most

Many legal cases don't need a lawyer for every piece of work. But a little professional help at the right time can make a big difference.

Our unbundled legal services allow you to get expert assistance for the complicated parts of your case, and save money by handling the easier parts on your own. We help you get your case started off right, then work with you to figure out where you can save money by doing some of the work yourself using our forms and templates.

Unbundled Legal:

How We're Bridging the Gap Between Affordability and Need

Thanks to generous donors, skilled law clerks, and a streamlined delivery process, we're able to give Oregon residents high quality, low cost legal support in the areas of family law, small business and nonprofits, and asset preservation.

Each Unbundled Legal Service has three main components:

Quickstart Session

Once you're qualified, you'll meet with one of our attorneys to go over your needs and develop an action plan. This can be in-person or via online video chat.

Document Preparation

We write up the legal documents you need to get started, then we help you make sure they get processed correctly and filed with the court if needed.

Guidance and Support

We coach you through the legal process, provide you with forms and templates, and review your work. If your case gets complicated, we can represent you in a hearing or trial.

*Subject to  qualification. Specific services will depend on your needs and our availability. Contact us for details.
