Making Affordable Legal Services A Reality

The majority of law firms operate like any other enterprise. They provide quality service, but for the highest fee the market will bear. The system usually works, but in spite of the many hours of donated service by our local attorneys, many middle-income Idahoans who face legal challenges in their personal lives and businesses are financially unable to access quality legal representation.

A 2013 University of Idaho study, as reported by the Idaho State Bar, concludes that more than “775,000 Idahoans who face civil legal difficulties do not have the resources to seek the help of an attorney,” and “in 2012, 58 percent of civil cases (more than 89,000) had a pro-se [self-represented] party.”

Attorneys Northwest Inc. is different. We are a nonprofit organization, but we are primarily funded by the modest fees paid by our clients. We rely on this revenue, rather than government grants or subsidies, lessening the burden on our federal, state and local governments. We are also applying for foundation grants to fund legal programs for the community.  If we should ever have any unused revenue, we use it to further serve the community by lowering legal fees charged.  We are dedicated to providing quality and affordable legal aid to Middle America, starting with North Idaho.  Contact our office to see how we can help.

We serve clients throughout North Idaho including Benewah, Bonner, Boundary, Kootenai, Latah, Nez Perce and Shoshone counties in business law, guardianships, conservatorships, divorce, protection orders, employment law, nonprofit corporation law, estate planning, probate and elder law, contract law, small claims help, child custody, child support modifications, general civil litigation and criminal matters.  We also offer unbundled services tailored to the client’s needs.

How Does It Work?

We are a nonprofit organization that operates at a lower cost to clients simply because we are not aimed at ever-increasing profits. Legal fees serve our clients’ immediate needs, the realistic costs of providing legal counsel and the continued service of our community.
