The Affordable Law Firm strongly believes in what may be called the “Client’s Bill of Rights”… that the clients are treated with dignity and respect; and that value is provided for the legal fees the client pays to the law office. The legal work done is caring work.
The Affordable Law Firm is also about treating the client right. We offer the best possible representation, education as to the legal process and as to the substantive issues involved in a particular case, and an understandable explanation in non-technical language regarding the legal process.
We also believe in having a comfortable office that is warm, friendly and non-threatening. Our office is in a red brick building at the corner of Gaylord Street and East 20th Avenue. This is right across from City Park. Thee is a small parking lot right in front of the building on Gaylord Street near 20th Avenue. There is also parking available on the street. It is not difficult to find a parking space when visiting this office. Right outside of the office window is a courtyard, and a working fountain is outside this office window. We have a full-time receptionist, and there is water and coffee for you when you arrive, if you so wish.
Clients are seen when they appear at the office for their appointment; no client is kept waiting. While this office has a comfortable and nicely appointed reception area, no clients are kept waiting in this reception area. You are seen when you arrive.
I carry a relatively small caseload in my office, so that I can offer result oriented legal services to my clients; and so that I can give more attention, and more care, to your case. This allows me to return your calls and e-mails, (if I am not in court), in the same morning or afternoon that I receive your call or e-mail. This also allows me to have you come in for an appointment within 24 hours of talking to you, if we determine an appointment is needed.
Of special note, the hourly rate for Phil Klein is $175 per hour. This is under the market rate for the seven county Denver metro area. The time for Monique Mountain, the long-term legal assistant for the office, is billed at $40 per hour. Monique’s time is not billed up. The retainer is $2,500 To say this another way, the retainer of $2,500 starts your family law case. In addition, the time spent on your case is billed conservatively.
