Moderate Means Family Law Panel

As part of our Moderate Means Program, this services offers reduced fee representation to those in our community seeking help with a family law issue.

Moderate Means Family Law Panel Application

Today, many of Contra Costa County’s hardworking residents, living off moderate incomes, are facing a legal dilemma. When a family law issue arises, they are caught between ineligibility for legal aid/pro bono support and the inability to pay regular rates for private practicing attorneys.

There has been an explosion in the number of applications for reduced-fee attorneys since we modified the Moderate Means guidelines. With a panel of only 14 attorneys, the CCCBA has been struggling to meet the demands of the increased clientele.

As a family law attorney, you can make quality legal support a reality for many people in the area by joining the CCCBA Moderate Means Program.

There are two levels of client eligibility. You can choose which level they wish referred to their office and/or limit the number of cases referred per year for each level.

  • Level One Clients: You agree to charge no more than $40.00 – $80.00 per hour, and not to request more than a $500.00 – $650.00 retainer fee.
  • Level Two Client: You agree to charge no more than $80.00 – $1250.00 per hour, and not to request more than a $650.00 – $800.00 retainer fee.

The initial 30-minute consultation is at no further cost to the client.
