Abstract

Given that Americans of average means cannot afford the average hourly rate that most attorneys charge, Luz Herrera discusses how lawyers can realistically offer "low bono" fee arrangements, charging clients of limited means significantly lower hourly rates. She discusses how law schools, bar associations, legal aid organizations, and courts can help promote low bono models.
