The Law Office of Jarrett L. Colby

Litigation & Legal Advice in Washington, D.C. & Maryland

I help individuals and small businesses solve their legal problems—whether mundane or extraordinary. I combine a decade of experience in business and the law with a practical, results-oriented approach. Recognizing that no two clients’ situations are the same, I take the time to fully understand my clients’ issues and to collaboratively develop creative solutions to their unique problems.

I believe that everyone should be able to hire a lawyer, no matter their financial resources. The initial consultation is free (unless you go through a referral service that charges a fee). If we decide to work together after that, my rates are competitive. Depending on factors such as needs, finanical resources, and availability, clients may qualify for alternative fee arrangements, including:

  • Discounted rates
  • Flat-fee pricing
  • Installment payments
  • Pro bono services
