You'll be able to schedule your free call with me at the bottom of this page, but first let me tell you how I work with clients.
You won't find this anywhere else, and I think you'll agree with me that it is pretty awesome. . .
especially if you're ready to hire a lawyer for your divorce, custody or child support case, but you're not excited about paying a retainer or getting billed by the hour.
If that's you, then you'll want to hear about my Pay-As-You-Go Membership.Learn More
What is the Pay-As-You-Go Membership?
The Pay-As-You-Go Membership is the very SELECT GROUP of AWESOME clients that I have the privilege of representing in contested divorce, custody and support cases.
I use the word "SELECT" because I accept a limited number of clients into the Membership. The work we do in the Membership is highly customized, and I make sure to keep space in my calendar to serve each client at the highest level.
And I say "AWESOME" because. . . well. . . I have awesome clients.
When you hire me by joining the Pay-As-You-Go Membership, you're hiring me on what we lawyers call an "LAR" basis.
LAR stands for "Limited Assistance Representation."
I'm not a huge fan of the word "Limited," because there is nothing limited about what we do around here, but here's how I describe Limited Assistance Representation (keep scrolling down, my friend.)
Imagine going into a restaurant, opening the menu and seeing that there are no prices listed next to the menu items.
So you ask the waiter what your meal will cost, and he tells you that it depends on how long the chef takes to prepare your entire meal.
Oh it gets better. You're not selecting your own meal. The chef will choose for you. . .
She will then prepare your meal, charge you by the hour, and send you an invoice periodically as you eat what is brought out for you.
Yes, you have to eat all of it. You also need to pay the chef a retainer before she starts cooking.
I am the chef in this analogy (I know. . . stay with me.)
What I have described above is the traditional model of representing clients that lawyers have used for decades -- the retainer and hourly fee model.
This works for some clients in some circumstances, but not for everyone.
Many other clients want an alternative to paying large retainers and getting billed by the hour. I created the Pay-As-You-Go Membership for them.
If retainers and hourly billing is like shoving down the whole menu in one meal. . .
then LAR is more like a la carte.
You order what you need and want depending on your circumstances, and you know in advance what you will pay for each item that you order because the price is right on the menu.
Hmmm. . . transparent pricing. . . the other chefs lawyers are definitely going to be mad at me.
I know. You want to learn more. So keep scrolling down and click play on the video below.

So, yeah -- like I said, it's pretty awesome. But, don't take my word for it, look at what Members have to say. . .
"I just want to send you a message giving you a sincere Thank You for all that you do. . . You rock!"
"Thank you Janie. I appreciate your professionalism in your craft. . .
It was a pleasure to have met you and I am still very impressed with your program. If I have occasion to refer an attorney to anyone in the future I will not hesitate to refer them to you, in high regard."
"Janie I just wanna say thank you so much. I could not have gotten through this without you. Your attention to detail, intuition, and legal advice are second to none. Thank you so much!!"
"The LAR videos are not only excellent, they're absolutely invaluable for anybody without a law degree. . . By taking away the confusion, your videos enable your clients to better understand the legal end of divorce and what they can expect when going to court. . . You going through each procedure, step by step, has helped me tremendously! . . . I highly recommend both you and the LAR videos to anyone contemplating divorce."
"Thank you for all of your work with my case and the work that you put into the content available, it has been more helpful than I can express."
"Thank you so much for listening to me and doing everything you could to advocate for the kids and myself. Today brought a great sense of relief. I truly am thankful to you and honestly felt as though I was more than just a client to you. Thank you again for helping me get through this very difficult time."

Oh, you have questions? Good.
I'd never make it as a chef, but Probate and Family Court is definitely my jam.
And chef-analogies aside, I take this work very seriously. I know you do, too. After all, this is your family -- there is a lot on the line. So please -- ask away.
Can I really do this without a lawyer?
Will you still come to court with me?
What if I have a question for you about my case?
What is the pricing for your additional services not included in the monthly fee?
What is your refund and cancellation policy?
What if my spouse (child's other parent) joins the Membership?
Can I still hire you the traditional way?
I understand that the decision to hire an attorney – and which one to hire – is difficult, especially when it comes to your family.
I've had the privilege of representing family law clients for over twenty years. I regularly appear in Probate And Family Court on matters involving divorce, paternity, custody and child support.
Inside of the Pay-As-You-Go Membership, I put all of that experience to work for you.
