Introduction: Our business stands out in numerous ways. After being hired, clients will receive the attorney's personal contact info. We have extended phone call hours for people who can't speak during regular business hours. Where ethically allowed under state law, we offer flat-fees on some cases so the clients will know exactly how much it will cost them. We offer discounts on many kinds of cases for veterans or current military. Please inquire if you are a veteran or current member of the military. For criminal cases, we will walk you through all of your options to minimize the client's exposure to tough, unreasonable sentences. We are also familiar with all the alternative disposition programs, where clients may be able to avoid criminal penalties. For divorces, we offer some of the lowest fees in the State of CT! Uncontested cases go for as little as $2000, and are usually resolved in about four months, sometimes less. For contested cases, we charge a bit more but our goal is always to get the most favorable outcome for the client possible. We even have attorneys on staff who have trial experience, although trials somewhat rare in CT. For personal injury cases, we charge a contingency fee, meaning the customer gets charged only if we succeed in getting a settlement or judgment, and the fee is set by CT statute! We also have connections with various doctors and chiropractors with whom we regularly work. This usually allows us to negotiate the client's medical bills after settlement, thereby putting more money in the client's pocket. We will always maximize the amount of compensation possible for the client! We have foreign language translators available, both Spanish and Italian are currently available. We love happy clients and will make all reasonable efforts to ensure the client's satisfaction with the legal services provided. This means that we do not "nickel and dime" our clients, and your billing will be detailed and straightforward. Most importantly, though we are lawyers, we are people first and we are always happy to answer questions or concerns from our clients!

Attorney Zachary Lawrence provided much appreciated direction and stability for my wife and I during our uncontested divorce. He listened to us, patiently and quickly answered our endless questions, and was able to quickly pull together a settlement that we were both happy with. His coordination and efforts navigating the court documentation and his clear and concise direction in that regard eased any anxiety we both had about the process. I would highly recommend Zachary if you are looking for a clean, drama-free divorce at a very fair and affordable price. I wish I could choose all 5 options instead of just the three allowed in this review - we were very happy with his work and would definitely recommend.

Working with Affordable Legal Services, LLC was a great experience. Zachary was a true professional who always kept in communication with me at all times. He fully explained everything in detail and left no room for misinterpretation. He made me feel confident and comfortable throughout the process and I would recommend him to anyone in the future. It was great working with him.

Attorney Lawrence was very professional. Lawrence gave sound legal advice and was knowledgable about criminal defense. He was clear in explaining potential outcomes and advised in the best case resolutions. Lawrence was easily contacted by phone, text, and email. Within 2 years of working with Lawrence, he made no guarantees and explained all corresponding risks and costs. Furthermore, he is very organized and punctual with his clients. Although my case was mild Lawrence would schedule and call ahead of time to remind and track my court sanctions. Overall Zach Lawrence is a great character who truly cares and is passionate about his clients.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We offer discounts on certain kinds of cases for veterans, current military and law enforcement. They make for the best clients! We also offer flat-fees on certain kinds of cases, especially uncontested family/divorce matters, small claims filings, and lower-level criminal cases. For personal injury cases, our contingency fee is the legal fee set by CT law! Contingency means that we only get paid at the end of the case if the client gets a settlement or judgment. We try to offer the most affordable fees in CT, and we may even be able to work with you on a payment plan depending on the nature of your case. Credit cards are accepted, too, however, the bank adds an additional processing fee of 4% (four percent).

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First, we have an initial half-hour consultation, FREE of charge for most cases, in order to gather as much information as possible and give the customer an accurate retainer estimate. (Longer consultations may have a minimal fee of $75, particularly for divorces. For personal injury or criminal cases, there is NEVER a consultation fee!) We will discuss legal options and potential issues with your case during the consultation. For injury cases, we are associated with various doctors and chiropractors who will help assess your medical records and bills, and give their opinions in order to help bolster the case. For criminal cases, we’ll discuss alternatives to litigation like diversionary programs that are available. For divorces, the customer will receive an information form to fill out and that will help assess how complicated the divorce may be. Our goal is always to minimize expenses for clients as much as possible, while also handling the case in an efficient manner.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    All attorneys are fully licensed in the state and federal courts.
