Arizona Modest Means Project

About the Modest Means Project

The purpose of the Arizona Modest Means Project is to provide low-cost legal assistance to people who cannot afford the expertise of attorneys at the standard rates, but who cannot qualify for free legal services due to income qualification or other restrictions. The Project serves those whose income is less than or equal to 250% of the federal poverty guidelines.

Modest Means Project attorneys agree to be available to assist Modest Means Project clients for a fee of $75 for a one-hour consultation, after which the attorney has discretion to continue representation at a fee of $75 per hour.
