We help clients avoid the costly inefficiencies and inconveniences of a traditional law practice by shifting the attorney-client interface to telephone, video-conference or e-mail communications, rather than in-office consultations, creating an ongoing attorney-client relationship that is more flexible and integrated into the work-flow of each client business at substantially less cost. Additionally, we take a value-added approach to billing rather than the traditional billable hour or retainer fee arrangement.

COMMUNITY LAND TRUST

A community land trust is an institution designed to create permanently affordable housing and low-income homeownership.  The key feature of CLTs is dual owners; the trust owns the grounds and the home or business owner owns the improvements on the grounds.  This significantly decreases the cost of entering the property market and provides a community-based land use planning tool for low-income populations.

WORKER-OWNED COOPERATIVE

A worker-owned cooperative is simply a worker-owned business.  Each worker-owner has one vote and revenues from the enterprises are divided democratically.  Like any business, worker-owned cooperatives must secure capital, develop business plans, market, and so on.  However, since there is no owner, all of the revenue is divide among those who produce and market the product.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FINANCIAL INSTITUTION

A CDFI is a community controlled bank that does micro-lending for local, small-scale enterprises.  Sometimes a CDFI is a credit union, but, because of increasing regulations, many CDFIs are non-profits.  Ideally, the board of the CDFI is controlled by residents of the target community.  Micro-lending is lending of $250000 or less, usually much less.
