Self-Help

We at Eatmon Law Firm understand that legal representation can be expensive and not everyone has the funds to retain an attorney for what could be a lengthy process. That’s why we also offer assistance for what are called unbundled or self-help legal services to guide you through the complicated process at a minimal cost to you. Our unbundled services include drafting complaints and motions for your signature, help with trial preparation, or researching specific legal issues.

If you are comfortable with trying to present your own case in front of a judge, but aren’t sure how to get started, we’ re happy to help you. The rules for filing complaints and motions in Wake County are complex and detailed. lf you make a mistake, or forget to include critical information, your complaint could be dismissed or your motion denied before you ever get to present your case and you’ ll have to start all over again. Don’t let this happen to you.

Our self-help fees are based on the services you require:

  • Drafting initial Complaint or General Motion: $300
  • Each additional issue: $100
  • Contempt Motion: $300
  • Legal Research: $200/hour (min. charge: $200)
  • Trial Preparation: $200/hour (min. charge: $200)
