SERVICES: Legal services for not-for-profits and small businesses

What’s this? A legal firm that lists many of its services and prices upfront?

We at Greater Good want to give you as much predictability as possible when purchasing legal services. That means being open and honest about what we charge. It also means making commitments about what our services will cost.

If you don’t see a price or a service below, don’t worry, we’ll discuss it and make sure we agree on what services we will provide and the associated fee. We’ll also identify the tasks that each of us must perform and develop a schedule for completion.
