How Can I Become a Client?
Complete the Potential Client Information Application. Please note that you will not automatically become a client by submitting this form. After receiving your completed form, the clinic will contact you to set up an initial consultation meeting. If we accept your case after the consultation meeting, you will receive a retainer agreement. This agreement will outline the terms of services we will provide. Your representation will begin after we receive the signed copy of your retainer agreement.
If you do not have access to a computer, or would prefer to give your information over the phone, please call us at 734.936.3535.
How Much Does It Cost?
We do not charge clients for our services. However, if you are accepted as a client, you may need to pay for expenses incurred during representation, such as filing fees, court costs, transcript costs, copying, and mailing charges.
"The IRS made me a nervous wreck. My student attorneys eased my fears by saying they felt they could reach a solution with them. If anything, you should make your wonderful service more well-known to others. I'll do my best to pass on the word. Keep up the good work!"
"The clinic did everything right for me and my children. I want you to know how much I appreciate all the hard work that was done for my family. I could not have done this myself."
"My student attorney reassured my doubts about potential outcomes and obligations for my case. He exceeded my expectations at every step. My thanks to all involved. I’m also happy that my small matter may have helped in any way, regarding education and clinical experience."
"I can think of nothing that wasn't handled well in the clinic. A degree of empathy and professionalism was always exhibited. I have zero complaints. Thanks for the job you did and for reestablishing my peace of mind!"
"The argument presented in the letter to the IRS was perfectly crafted, citing IRS policy and how it applied to our case. Even as a "non-legal" reader, I could follow the argument easily and felt it made a clear and concise case for us. While this is my only experience with the clinic, I'm assuming you have helped many others with limited legal resources. This would make it a win-win situation for both your clients and your legal students."
"The clinic explained things in a way that was easily understood. Thank you for treating me with respect and taking care of my problem ASAP. Keep doing what you do."
"Please advertise your service more! I only knew about this wonderful service from the IRS. I wish the best for my student attorneys, as this country can use lawyers like these two can be. A+."
