Justice Entrepreneurs Project

The Justice Entrepreneurs Project (JEP) is a network of independent lawyers who are committed to making quality legal services accessible and affordable for regular people. Lawyers in the JEP offer fixed fees and flexible representation options (like unbundled, a la carte services) to help accomplish this. Their practices seek to be client-centered and emphasize approachability and collaboration between the attorney and client.

Lawyers in the JEP currently assist clients in the following areas:

  • Family Law – including divorce, spousal support, child support, custody, visitation and orders of protection
  • Landlord/Tenant – including eviction proceedings and security deposit claims
  • Consumer Law – including debt collection issues, consumer disputes and Chapter 7 bankruptcy
  • Estate Law – including wills, probate and guardianships
  • Employment Law – including discrimination and wage claims
  • Small Business/Non-profit – including business formation, contracts and intellectual property issues
  • Real Property Law – including foreclosure proceedings and real estate purchase/sale
  • Criminal misdemeanors, traffic tickets, license suspensions and ordinance violations
  • Immigration Law – including visas, residency, naturalization and asylum
