What Sets Us Apart
We are a modern, client-centric law firm that utilizes the most recent and best-in- class technology to service our clients efficiently. This approach allows us to provide exceptional legal services and exceptional customer service.
Further, we are the rare law firm that has removed the inefficiency of an outdated legal services model, so we can be a key advisor without inflating your legal bills. In fact, we entertain a variety of billing arrangements, including: hourly rates, daily rates, flat fee projects, partial equity structures, and contingency fees.
Rather than paying high rates for legal counsel whose interests are not aligned with yours, when you engage Fournier Legal Services, you are working with a firm that supports and furthers your business strategy.
- We give clients access to a secure client portal, where they can access their important documents, message us, and make payments online 24/7

- We believe in a “less paper” philosophy – improved efficiency, improved security and longevity of your files, lower overhead costs for us means lower legal bills for you, and environmentally friendly
- Less reliance on mailing – we can service you faster and spend more time on legal, rather than administrative, matters
- Improved customer service – we care – individual and personalized service in a friendly environment
- Client responsiveness – we respond to all client inquiries within 24 hours – every client, all the time
