Affordable, for everyone

In 2022 the Legal Services Corporation issued a report finding that 92% of substantial civil legal problems faced by low-income Americans received inadequate or no legal help. Market-rate legal fees are expensive and often unaffordable for working individuals and families. Although there are community organizations that offer free legal assistance, many people make too much money to qualify, but too little to afford an attorney. Because of this, Bull City Legal Services offers income-based fee arrangements.

Traditional law firms in the Triangle charge an hourly rate of $300 per hour, with initial consultations costing up to $200 for up to 90 minutes, including legal research. Bull City Legal Services offers income-based rates ranging from $150-$225 per hour. We also offer a flat-rate half hour consultation for only $50.
