Fees & Payments Eligibility

Sliding Scale Rates

Education Rights Counsel provides reduced-fee services to under-resourced families based on federal poverty guidelines. We provide one initial free 1/2 hour consultation (one per family unit) to determine eligibility and whether legal services representation can be undertaken. The sliding scale for eligibility for reduced-fee services in 2018 is below. If a family is eligible, Education Rights Counsel will help accepted clients determine applicable hourly rates and retainers.
