Maginnis Law represents a variety of businesses, from single-member Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) to multi-million dollar S-Corporations.  For each company, no matter how small or large, we work to assist your business with legal issues relating to steady, smart growth as well as providing first-class experienced representation in civil and commercial litigation disputes with other companies, vendors, employees, sub-contractors, customers, government entities and other parties.

The firm strives to be flexible in working with its business clients to set an appropriate fee structure that reflects the needs of each individual matter. The proper way for attorneys to keep their rates low is through technology, reduced overhead and costs, not through handling cases on volume.  Every case is its own individual matter and has its own complex issues.  Be just as wary of bargain-basement rates for lawyers as you are for overly expensive large corporate law firms.

While some matters are best litigated using the traditional hourly rate model, Maginnis Law also can provide fee estimates on a flat fee basis; this allows clients to have certainty in how much certain litigation matters will cost.  The firm also represents a number of clients in a “general counsel” capacity; that is, instead of hiring an in-house lawyer for your business, Maginnis Law can provide legal representation for all of your company’s needs for a single monthly retainer rate.
