How Timely Contract® Works
1st Attorney Call
Business Day 2
The TC Certified™ attorney calls to discuss your concerns and possible solutions. Engage the services of the attorney by returning a signed Fee Agreement and advance fee.
Performance of Legal Solution
Delivery date depends on solution agreed to during the 1st Attorney Call. Depending on the solution and availability of documents, delivery can take up to ten business days, sometimes longer.
2nd Attorney Call
Your TC Certified™ attorney will call at the scheduled time. Discuss the legal deliverable and address any remaining questions you may have. If additional legal work is required, a new Scope of Service and Fee Agreement will need to be negotiated.

Limited-scope legal services restrict the involvement of an attorney in a client matter to a predefined set of legal services. Timely Contract’s suite of limited-scope legal services address common transactional problems encountered in the real estate industry.
Limited-scope legal services do not meet the needs of every legal client. If a potential client’s legal need is beyond the scope of the Timely Contract solutions, your TC Certified™ attorney will recommend traditional legal services.
