Practice areas

Like most law firms, we offer full representation to clients upon payment of an up-front retainer. But unlike most law firms, we don't believe that clients unable to afford an initial retainer should be denied access to high-quality legal services. This is why we also offer unbundled "pay-as-you-go" legal services at an affordable flat-fee.

With unbundled legal services, a/k/a “limited scope representation,” an attorney and client agree that the attorney will handle some, but not all, aspects of a client’s legal matter. The client is responsible for handling all other aspects of his or her own case for which the attorney has not been retained. This allows the client to choose the level and scope of representation he or she desires, and provides predictable control over the cost of various legal services. Most significantly, with unbundled legal services, instead of charging an up-front retainer for full legal representation, clients can pay for individual services as they are needed at a reasonable flat-fee rate.

Whether you desire one of our many unbundled legal service options, or full representation, we have an option for you. Please contact our office to learn more about the full list of legal services we provide, and to discover our current flat-fee rates.

The Best, look no further!
What began as a complicated,ugly divorce, turned into a successful, tolerable time in my life because of Greg Markwell! Greg was attentive to all my concerns while being very understanding and accommodating of one's time and finances. His guidance during my divorce was unmatched. While my ex-wife's attorney kept delaying, Greg stayed positive and kept pushing proceedings forward. Truly, I feel lucky to have met Greg!

Peace of mind
I hired Greg Markell to represent me in my divorce proceedings after a friend recommended his services. Greg was understanding of my circumstances and walked me through the divorce process beginning to end. Throughout the process, Greg kept in contact with me and updated me on any and all progress made on my case. I truly appreciated his representation and have recommended his services to family and friends alike.

Highly recommended
After meeting with various lawyers, Mr. Markwell provided clarity and made my divorce process much easier than I know others have experienced. I would recommend him to anyone looking for well prepared and experienced counsel.

Excellent Litigator
I hired Greg as replacement counsel. My original lawyers made a mess of the case which put me in a difficult position. Greg was the opposite of them: thoughtful, attentive, careful with his words, reasonable with setting my expectations, and respectful with how he used my time and money. In the end, he made the most of the situation and got me a settlement that was 50% higher than what my original attorneys were able to negotiate. I highly recommend his services.
