If you need legal help, you’ve come to the right place.
From an attorney who is a certified specialist in his field with a full support staff to simple document preparation, we can provide an appropriate level of service to accommodate almost any budget.
1. Free Help – for simple legal problems
We provide pro bono services through free classes, workshops, and seminars. A current list of free events can be found at www.KernSeminars.com.
2. Legal Document Assistance – for those who represent themselves
We provide Legal Document Assistance for clients who are comfortable representing themselves without a lawyer. We help our clients save money by preparing and filing court documents for filing in Bakersfield or anywhere in California.
Documents are prepared by and under the direction of Licensed Document Assistants. Fees are low because the clients represent themselves in court, but our LDAs help the clients navigate through the confusing and complicated process of getting a divorce or legal separation.
3. Joint Assistance – for parties who can cooperate in the process
For couples that can cooperate in their divorce, civil litigants who want the court to settle their matter, or others who wish to save costs by cooperating with their opponent, we can prepare all documents for both parties in many cases and our lawyers can make most court appearances.
To do this, one of our Licensed Document Assistants will meet with BOTH parties to the action, help them come to an agreement, and then prepare and file all necessary documents. One of our lawyers will then appear in court for both parties and put the agreement on the records in front of a judge. This keeping the parties out of court and keeps costs down by keeping the case uncontested. The attorneys and LDAs don’t represent either one of the parties, and can, therefore, work with and meet with both of them to accomplish their goals. This is a reasonable and affordable legal alternative to the high cost of typical divorce.
4. Full Representation – for criminal matters and difficult or complex cases
If you retain the lawyers in our firm, you will find that they generally charge significantly less than most of the attorneys in the area even though they are highly qualified. Roger Grass is a bar certified family law specialist, and Roger Lampkin is the author of several books. They know what they are doing.
