Let us know if you need to make special arrangements to hire us.
Some housing and consumer protection problems can be resolved during one hour-long meeting with me. My goal is to help you enough within the first hour that you won’t need to pay for more services. First Meeting: $95
If you want to hire me to do more after the First Meeting, you have two options:
Lawyers usually bill by the hour for their work. I keep overhead low so I can charge discounted rates that start at $200 per hour—about 70% of the market rate.
As an alternative to traditional hourly pricing, I can sometimes bid legal work on a flat fee basis. If you accept the bid, your fees for that work are capped at that amount. Additional work is priced as negotiated after that.
Legal Aid: If you have a civil legal problem and have little income, I encourage you to call your local legal aid office. You may be eligible for high-quality legal help at no charge. Find your local office at Oregon Law Help.
Hope Del Carlo, Attorney
In 1997, I moved to Portland for law school, I had my kids here, and I stayed. I care about the state of justice in Oregon and my clients’ lives, and I believe in what I do. Homeownership builds family wealth, it stabilizes neighborhoods, and gives people power.
I helped hundreds of people during the Great Recession as the project coordinator for a statewide foreclosure defense project. I’m ready to listen and help you fix your mortgage problems—give me a call.
