Purpose, Mission, Vision, and History
Our purpose at Lion Legal Services is to evolve the way Arkansans feel about lawyers by resolving life’s problems with affordable, transparent, reasonable, no-nonsense legal solutions.
Our vision is to be a household name for all of Arkansas as practical, affordable, civic-minded trial lawyers.
The mighty Lion serves with dignity, wisdom, and integrity. Lion Legal Service’s mission is to resolve life’s problems, with the serenity, creativity, and decisiveness expected from the King of the Jungle.
As the saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention and nothing is more obviously needed than affordable, reasonable legal services for Arkansans. Over 90% of legal cases go unresolved or are attempted to be resolved without an attorney involved on one side or the other, because attorneys are stuffy, expensive, arrogant & inflexible.
Tori is an attorney and didn’t like them – her perspective from her middle-class upbringing, was “no wonder no one likes lawyers!” Attorneys make things complicated, withhold information, are impossible to get a hold of and charge a lot for the extra hours of work they create and often the solutions they don’t find!
Leigh Law was born in a one room second floor office (with no elevator!) and a commitment to genuinely help people, reasonably, solve their problems. Clients come to law offices when they are scared, in limbo; they don’t know what to do and often have a small budget to do something with. If your problem is not solve-able, then a lawyer should not take your money to “try.” Even if your budget is not “small,” no one wants to waste money on lawyers without a meaningful result.
The Mighty Lion was chosen as our emblem because he has the broadest shoulders to bear the weight of serious life issues; he serves the entire jungle from the least to the greatest; and, possesses the creativity and wisdom to find the most reasonable, economical resolutions, so clients can move on with their lives. Reasonableness is not weakness.
There is almost always a reasonable resolution to avoid the expense and uncertainty of trial for clients; when the opponent is being unreasonable, our Lion Lawyers are Trial Lawyers, comfortable and easy in a courtroom to get the right result for each of our clients.
Today, we are Lion Legal Services, a neighborhood office, with lion lawyer expertise in a variety of areas, providing no-nonsense legal services at low flat fees with interest-free payment plans. Even our retainer fees are reasonable, when the case necessitates hourly billing. Our bedrock is our transparent, approachable manner, excellent client communications, reasonable advice, and aggressive trial skills, at 1/2 to 1/3 the cost of traditional law offices without sacrificing the quality of our counsel.
Lion Legal Services is built around your convenience, including twenty-four hours emergency access, same day phone consultations with a Lion Lawyer, and secure electronic communications. We are seamlessly organized, providing structure, regular communication, and clear guidance clients crave. Lion Legal Services exemplifies the concept that the process – how it feels – is equally as important as the result; and we have hundreds of 5-star reviews to prove it.
The Lion is courageous, just, and dignified; he is committed to serving his entire community with Lion Guidance. Lion Legal Services works for positive social change the only way we know how: legally! We partner with local libraries to plan and host regular free legal clinics and with non-profits to further our purpose and mission of expanding access to affordable no-nonsense legal services. We regularly host free seminars on how to prevent legal problems in common areas of life: buying a car, warranties, leasing, property claims, buying insurance, & contract reviews, divorce, custody, estate planning, small businesses, credit & financing.
Our civic-minded Lion Lawyers are your lawyers for life. Always have plenty of cards, so no matter the problem life presents, you can resolve it with a simple, “call my lawyer!” because our Pride Protection is a life-long promise.
Since 2012, Working Arkansans have a working law firm to get what they need, when they need it, for a price they can afford and an experience they will appreciate.
