Attorney Drucker has been involved in LOW FLAT FEE legal offerings since his admission to the Bar in 1977. Early in his career, while in Northern California, he helped develop a standardized method of handling cases in a volume practice. In 1978, Stephen moved to Los Angeles and helped develop the Legal Action Workshop concept at L.A.W.'s first storefront office in Sherman Oaks. The concept provided low cost legal services in three main areas: attorney-assisted law (in pro per), document preparation and full representation.
Stephen developed a love of working with ordinary people and helping them solve their legal issues quickly and cost effectively. He incorporated a flat fee 'in pro per' or 'partial representation' model as an alternative to full legal representation. This created a standardized approach to Attorney-assisted (in pro per) law, and a unique Attorney assisted practice.
Now Stephen has 1 office in Los Angeles County, with plans to expand the online Legal Action Workshop offerings. L.A.W. is now able to help clients in the areas of divorce, legal separation, annulment as well as paternity actions and Requests for Order, bankruptcy and estate planning throughout California due to the ease of internet use.
From Stephen's office in Glendale CA, he helps people in the surrounding cities of Santa Monica, Mar Vista, Compton and Inglewood. From his offices in Glendale, he helps people in the surrounding areas of Pasadena, Burbank, Palmdale, Lancaster as well as the San Fernando Valley such as Sherman Oaks, Studio City and Van Nuys.
Stephen also has many clients that he does not see in person, as he helps them by phone and email. These clients live throughout California. Stephen arranges a consultation by phone, then all paperwork is emailed or faxed as needed. Papers are filed in the California county in which the client resides. In this way, matters such as Divorce, Annulments, Legal Separations, Paternity Actions as well as changes to court orders can be easily handled.
Likewise, when clients need a legal will, trust or powers of attorney, Mr. Drucker can arrange a consultation and prepare the necessary legal documents. Many of our clients who require a Probate reside throughout the United States or in other parts of the world. They may have had a relative who passed away in Los Angeles County or Southern California and had property in these areas. We arrange for a consultation with the client and file the Probate as needed. Probate is an area of full representation. Attorney Drucker would go to court, help with the sale of the property, if requested, change ownership to heirs and arrange for the distribution of funds. Stephen has more than 30 years' experience in the area of Probate.
