Bringing quality, affordable legal services to your community
What is KentCommunity?
KentCommunity is a low-fee legal services team run by the lawyers at Kent Employment Law. Although we’re not a free clinic, we provide way-below-market value rates.
Our goal is to make quality, boutique-style legal advice and representation accessible to those in our communities who need it.
Who is eligible?
Individuals who need employment-related advice or representation may be eligible for KentCommunity services. You have to be able to show that your financial situation prevents you from accessing legal services.
Generally, your last year’s annual income must fall below the following thresholds:
|Family of two:||$41,000|
|Family of three:||$52,600|
|Family of four:||$64,300|
|Family of five:||$76,000|
|Family of six:||$87,700|
|Family of seven or more:||$99,400|
What’s the cost?
Depending on your legal issue and the type of advice or representation you need, legal fees will vary. Hourly rates generally range from $85.00/hour to $150.00/hour, but KentCommunity lawyers also offer low-percentage contingency rates and fixed rates.
Once you’ve submitted an application form, one of our people will get in touch with you to request financial documents and documents to your legal issue. If your eligibility is confirmed, then a KentCommunity lawyer will contact you to get started.
