Plan Your Budget

At Mitton Law, we value transparency. That’s why we make our rates available for public viewing. While our core services center around trademarks and are available to entrepreneurs across the country, our Managing Attorney is an experienced business lawyer who also provides counsel & representation for a wide range of legal issues.

Below, a “Legal Fee” refers to the fees paid to secure the attorney’s services, whereas an “Expense” refers to the other costs necessary to complete the legal work, such as government filing fees.

We’ve attempted to make this listing of rates as comprehensive as possible, but there may be certain services we provide which are not listed. If you have questions about our services or rates, please feel free to Contact Us for more information. 

MAKING LEGAL SERVICES AFFORDABLE

We know that not all clients have the capacity to pay in full upfront for legal services, but we’re committed to making high-quality legal counsel available to as many entrepreneurs as possible. That’s why we’re proud to offer payment plans and financing options to clients who have tight budgets.

Our payment plans allow entrepreneurs to break the total costs for their legal project into 2, 3, or 4 installments paid bi-weekly. For clients who need to spread out payments over a longer period of time, we partner with Affirm so that our clients can get the funds to cover their legal costs immediately and repay Affirm on a schedule of their choosing (up to 24 months).

If you need help with payment, please let us know! We are flexible on payment options because we never want costs to be a barrier to working with us.

The following rates are estimates for a typical matter. Some matters may require different or additional work, which will require an adjustment in fees.

Why Choose Mitton Law?

Figuring out which attorney to hire can be challenging when there are so many options. Here are some things to consider when evaluating whether to work with us. Our clients have chosen us because of our:

Clarity

Few things are worse for clients than having a lawyer who they don’t understand. When we communicate with or create a work product for our clients, we aim to be as clear and thorough as possible so that we leave no questions unanswered.

Predictability

Budgeting for legal services can be a challenge when you work with an attorney who only bills hourly. It’s almost impossible to determine how much a particular project will cost you. But we prioritize the use of flat fees so that our clients know exactly what to expect in terms of costs.

Flexibility

Even with flat fees, we know that high-quality legal representation may seem inaccessible to some clients with restricted budgets. We understand cash flow challenges & offer flexible payment plans that allow our clients to break up the payment of fees into manageable chunks that work for them.

Creativity

Our clients are trailblazers, charting their own course through new terrain. We provide innovative solutions to their legal issues & inventive strategies for their operations. Plus, we’re always seeking new ways to practice law & help our clients.

Reliability

In the DIY legal age, it can be hard to know who to trust. But instead of working with some faceless corporation,  our clients know exactly who their attorney is & what her credentials are, so they can be confident that they are receiving the best possible legal representation.

Tech-Savvy

Gone are the days when you had to meet your attorney in person & exchange paper documents. We believe in using industry-leading technology to create a seamless client experience. Our clients can communicate with us confidentially & access their case file from any Internet-connected device through our client portal.
