What Our Services Cost
We understand that customers like to know how much things cost. Our basic rate is $150/hour, with discounts for non-profit and access to justice related work. While Docassemble is free, we find that developing forms for Docassemble takes a similar amount of time as developing forms for HotDocs. The difference? No per-user license fees. Flexible hosting. Infinite customizability and an end product that is attractive and modern.
What kind of projects does Lemma Legal handle?
Finally, we help customers with custom API integrations. For example, using location data to find the nearest courthouse, government office, or setting up an appointment in Office 365.

By definition, each custom coding project is something we haven’t tackled before. These typically range from 5-40 hours. Adding a new API for a project we’ve already partially integrated with Docassemble (such as Legal Server, Microsoft Graph, Google Apps, Clio, or Stripe) would be on the lower side. Adding a new API integration for a project we’ve never worked with before may take longer.
Hosting is not our core business, but we are happy to help you with a place to put your interviews. We are also happy to set up Docassemble for you on a server of your choice for a fixed one-time fee of $300.
