Frequently asked

questions

    • Why should I hire an attorney?

      At Bull City Legal Services, we understand that hiring an attorney can be costly. That’s why we aim to provide affordable legal services when you need them. By hiring an attorney, you can have peace of mind and be in a better position to reach your goals.

    • How much do you charge?

      Bull City Legal Services is a non-profit law firm that focuses on providing affordable legal services to the Durham Community. We base our prices on the income of our clients, offering discounted rates to qualifying individuals and small businesses.

    • How do individuals qualify for discounted legal services?

      Discounts are based on current household income, as verified by a recent pay stub, W-2, 1099, previous year’s tax return, or other valid government documentation.

    • Do you charge a consultation fee?

      We charge a flat rate of $50 for a half-hour consultation. If you decide to hire us to assist you with your case, we will waive the consultation charge or credit it toward your retainer.

    • What types of legal issues can you help me with?

      At Bull City Legal Services we have attorneys who cover a variety of practice areas. If you have a civil legal issue, reach out and we will do everything that we can to help you resolve it quickly and affordably.

    • How often will I be updated on the status of my case?

      We believe that communication is key to maintaining peace of mind during complicated and difficult legal proceedings. Because of this, we will update you every time there is a substantive change in the status of your proceeding. If there have been no changes, we will inform you as to that every two weeks.

    • How do businesses qualify for discounted legal services?

      Bull City Legal Services uses the Small Business Administration’s definition of 'Small Businesses,' which is determined by industry, annual revenue, or number of employees. Non-profit organizations are always offered discounted rates.

    • If I hire an attorney, can I still settle without going to court?

      We often encourage out of court settlement, and will seek to settle if we can achieve a beneficial outcome to you by doing so. It saves time and money, reduces the risk of an unfavorable outcome, and allows parties to tailor the terms of the agreement to meet their specific needs and interests. Settling out of court is often the best option for all parties involved.

    • Im concerned that getting an attorney might make things worse. Is that true?

      Bringing in an attorney often calms things down. Attorneys bring professionalism, expertise, and a neutral perspective to situations. We facilitate effective communication in situations that are emotionally charged, help with negotiations, and guide parties to find common ground. We also make sure you understand your rights and potential choices — our goal is resolution without conflict. Most importantly, we ensure all legal procedures are followed properly, preventing any mistakes or delays in your case and maximizing your chance of success.
