Start Art Legal


Contact for Rates

Depending on the case or matter, Start Art Legal offers flat rates and hourly rates. Prices are always presented up front before any work gets done. For hourly tasks, Start Art Legal estimates a maximum number of hours a task will take in order to let you know what range of fees to expect before any work on that task is begun. Start Art Legal keeps detailed logs of the work done so that, upon request, you can see exactly what services were performed. 

For matters requiring an hourly rate, clients wishing to receive discounted or pro-bono legal help may contact California Lawyers for the Arts at (888) 775-8995 or and request attorney Jacob Janzen. California Lawyers for the Arts will perform a financial screening to determine eligibility for reduced or free legal aid.
