Coffee & Counsel

Coffee & Counsel image

It all started with a dream and latte. And it's become the best place to get legal advice and attorney referrals in southern California. Since inception in 1996, LegalGrind's Coffee & Counsel℠ has continually provided clients with access to the best legal advice and representation available, all in an informal, stress-free setting with a low cost for the initial consultation of only $45 for 20 minutes ($35 for seniors over 65 and students). We meet you where you are most comfortable –an in-person meeting at an attorney’s office, a conversation at the local coffee house, or if you are disabled or incapacitated in any way, at your location. That's just part of Attorney and Founder Jeffrey J. Hughes' plan to change the way that you access the law.

Document Processing

Our attorneys and paralegals help consumers represent themselves (pro se) in uncontested legal matters by preparing the necessary legal documents at their direction and to court standards. When you need a little extra help or guidance you can work with our attorneys to insure that everything is done right and you have the comfort in knowing that if your needs change we have the resources to help.
