Who We Are
We are a Washington, D.C. based law practice that offers services in civil and criminal law. Our focus is on getting results for our clients. In order to offer our clients high quality legal services at lower prices, Apex is composed of a network of lawyers with portable practices. You can come into the office or we can come to you (D.C. only, at this time). We have found this service is a great convenience for our elderly and disabled clients. The price of our house-call service has a $25.00 convenience fee. So the price is $325.00 per hour, while the in office consultation fee is $300.00 per hour. While we prefer cash, you may use a credit/debit card to pay for your legal consultation fee. For house-calls, the 1-hour consultation fee must be paid in advance. We offer a variety of payment plans and retainers to meet your financial needs for legal services.
