Jeff Befort has a proven history of success on consumer and commercial defense cases. This extensive experience spans over twenty years and almost every consumer law. Through Befort Law Firm, these services can be provided at a competitive hourly rate or through alternative fee structures.

Proven experience. Competitive fee arrangements.


Traditional law firms using hourly rates have priced themselves out of being able to cost effectively represent businesses in consumer, real property and smaller cases.  Befort Law provides a lower cost hourly rate of $200 per hour for consumer, real property and commercial litigation, while also considering alternative fee arrangements.
