Sliding Scale Fee Reduction

Legal services aren’t affordable for far too many people. The middle class makes too much money to qualify for free legal aid but not enough to pay for average legal fees. What is the result? People, especially those who are multiply and racially marginalized, go without the legal services they need.


50% of all Americans,[1] 70% of African Americans,[2] and less than 35%[3] of parents don’t have a will. Freelancers, coaches, consultants, and artists are often working on low or irregular incomes, pushing necessary legal services to the bottom of the list.


At Daly Law, LLC, we are trying to help close this justice gap. This is why we provide transparent pricing, flat fees, and a sliding scale fee reduction.


Daly Law, LLC utilizes a sliding scale fee reduction based on your income and the federal poverty level.[4] These numbers change slightly year to year and are based on the number of people in your household.


o 10% price reduction for household incomes 350-450% of the federal poverty level.

o Single person: $44,600 - $51,040 / Three people: $76,020 - $86,880

o 15% price reduction for household incomes 250-350% of the federal poverty level.
