Attorney Brent Helms
Satisfy your curiosity and get to know me a little better.
Attorney, former judge, entrepreneur, and public speaker
Brent is a young litigator with an already impressive range of experience, serving as a judge for three years prior to opening his own law firm. Two parts attorney and one part entrepreneur, Brent is highly driven and carries a truckload of optimism.
While Brent does have a slightly dorky love of the law, he'd still prefer to tell you about his wife and seven children. He is, in fact, a man of many talents - he's incredibly hard-working, smart, reliable, and valuable to his clients.
If there's one thing for which Brent is famous, apart from having seven children, it is for belying the conventional belief that attorneys are boring, dishonest, money-hungry, and stuffy. Brent puts an exclamation mark on that sentence.

OUR CLIENT-CENTERED PRICING MODELS
All of our pricing models are designed and calculated to equal the value we provide to you.
ONE-HOUR CONSULTATION FEE
We charge $100 for a one-hour consultation.
This type of pricing model offers a fixed fee for one-time or transactional work. We always stick to the fixed fee we quote.
FIXED SPECIFIC (OR LIMITED SCOPE) FEE
This type of pricing model offers a fixed fee for each specific task you wish for us to complete.
This type of pricing model is offered to those clients who do not want to pay a fixed or capped fee, or whose cases are so complex (or different) that we cannot determine an equitable flat or capped fee. Our normal hourly rate is $200.
We sometimes quote a capped fee, which we agree not to exceed. For example, if we handle a case on an hourly basis, we may cap the total amount you'll pay. This prevents the other side from "bleeding you dry" and winning the case because you don't have enough money to pay your attorney. It's also useful in contingency fee cases, where our cap is a fixed percentage of the winnings.
