To keep costs down for our clients while offering the highest levels of service and expertise, Reynolds Attorneys utilises the services of consultant attorneys who are specialists in their chosen field of law. They are handpicked by the principal attorney, Abigail Reynolds. By using consultants, Reynolds Attorneys does not have to pass on the cost to its clients of employing attorneys on a permanent basis and operating a large office to accommodate them.
You, the client, get efficient, specialist legal services for a far lower cost than at a large law firm. Senior attorneys work directly on your matter for the cost of a mid-level or junior attorney at a large law firm.
We offer Fixed Fee Quotes and Fee Estimates, so let us know what you need.
