The Neighborhood Advocacy Project currently accepts the following types of criminal cases:
- Criminal Felony
- Criminal Misdemeanor (except for Driving Under the Influence (DUI))
- Juvenile Delinquency
If you need assistance with a different type of case, please see our Resources page.
The Neighborhood Advocacy Project accepts clients whose incomes qualify them as indigent up to 300% of the current Federal Poverty Level. We do not accept clients who earn incomes at greater than 300% of the Federal Poverty Level. NAP is a sliding-scale law firm, meaning flat-rate legal fees* are based on a client’s monthly income** according to the below sliding-scale:
FLAT RATE FEES*
|% OF FEDERAL POVERTY LEVEL||< 200%||225%||250%||275%||300%|
|3rd Degree Felony||$1000||$1100||$1300||$1500||$1700|
*Flat rate fees do not include third party costs (such as the cost of an investigator or fee to serve a subpoena). Individuals who earn incomes higher than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level will be responsible for all costs associated with their case. An estimate of these costs can be given during your initial free consultation.
**Income will be verified prior to representation.
