About Us

Fair Price Legal

Fair Price Legal focuses on providing the best and most aggressive legal representation available for a reasonable fee. We believe our law firm is different from others because we concentrate on trying to keep client fees and costs low, as opposed to focusing on billable hours. You may be asking, "okay, since Fair Price Legal isn't legal aid, pro bono, free or budget legal services, how are its fees and costs lower than other attorneys?" The answer is simple, but uncommon among most other attorneys and law firms. If Fair Price Legal can keep its costs low, then it can pass those savings to its clients.

First, the current pandemic (COVID-19 and its many mutations), has shown the world in general that we can still get things done, just in a different way. Specifically in Florida courts, some judges have modified the way they conduct hearings by using teleconference sites such as ZOOM to conduct their hearings. There has also been a rise in telephonic hearings. All these "off-site" ways to move through the court process, decreases the amount of time a lawyer or law firm has to spend travelling to court. Travel expenses may include things like gas, parking fees, having extra staff to help with files, etc. The cost travelling to court for an hour and parking is much different from the costs associated with having a Zoom, Teams, or other teleconference hearing.

Likewise, Fair Price Legal changed the way it assists its clients and the community. Fair Price Legal is 21st century law firm. Unlike traditional lawyers and law firms, we modified our office to work mostly off-site and virtual. That means costs associated with operating a brick-and-mortar full time office are low or non-existent, and we can pass those savings to you. Fair Price Legal uses state-of-the art secure software, programs, and apps, that allow us to represent our clients efficiently and securely in a virtual setting without compromising quality and effectiveness.

Our 21st century law firm allows us to help people throughout the entire State of Florida not just within a limited area close to an address of a building. We represent clients from Key West to Pensacola and everywhere else in this wonderful state of ours. Clients and prospective clients can upload forms, fill out forms, have forms notarized, make payments, face-to-face meet with us, within minutes, not hours.

Of course, there are times when we will have to be physically present in court or to meet with our clients, prospective clients, witnesses, and so forth. Fair Price Legal has that covered. Our office is connected to 75-locations throughout the State of Florida. So, what does that mean? Fair Price Legal's listed address is in the Tallahassee area but our 21st century law firm has access to physical office space and can meet clients in: Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Orlando, Windermere, Tampa, Winter Park, Sarasota, Maitland, St. Petersburg, Vero Beach, Ft.

"I can't say enough about Mario. I have been fighting a high conflict post divorce Domestic Violence against a minor child case. Mario is the epitome of professionalism, knowledge and caring. He must never sleep because he answers any question at all hours. I always knew our plan, never once did I question what he did. He literally saved my child's life! I recommend him to anyone in a situation where you've exhausted all options and have no hope-he IS the hope, the answer, the attorney you need. He is so kind, understanding and extremely well versed, yet so humble. I would need 5 pages to describe my wonderful experience as his client. I've been fighting for my daughter's safety for 10 years. I've paid 3 times as much for a high profile lawyer, I tried representing myself (do not!) I will praise him for the rest of my life. I would even talk to anyone still unsure if he is right for you-he is. I put my daughter's life in his hands and as a mom there is nothing more important. I will use Mario for anything and everything I need. On a scale of 1-10 I rate him a 20plus! Stop searching! He is the attorney you need!"

Fair Price Legal's Values

"Fair Because It's The Right Thing To Do"

Wondering what it’s like to be a Fair Price Legal client?

Our values are the place to start. If our values line up with how you want to handle your legal issue, give us a call today.

The Right System And Solution For Your Problem

You have a lot of options for resolving your legal issues. We help you pick the right solution for you. Sometimes that means going to court; more often it means exploring alternative options.

When you want to go through the court system, we will - but we find most of our clients want to avoid it. Our advice is always based on the law, but the steps we follow and the solutions we reach will be based on your goals.

We firmly believe that lawyers should help resolve issues, not create them.

Empowerment And Accountability

As lawyers, we educate, advise, and inform our clients. We provide you with the tools and information you need to make the best decisions for yourself and your family. But at the end of the day, you are in control. We provide guidance; you make decisions.

Likewise, everyone who works at Fair Price Legal is accountable to each other and to you.

An Effortless Experience

We know dealing with lawyers can be difficult and stressful. We know you already have enough on your plate. We do everything we can to reduce the effort you need to put in. You’ll see a lot of these features on our website. Need to book a meeting, access your documents, pay a bill? It’s all online, at your fingertips, whenever and wherever you need it.

As much as possible, we keep you updated on the progress of your case. Sometimes it’s just a quick email to tell you there’s no news - but we know you’re wondering how things are going, and we make it easier to stay updated by eliminating the need to ask.

Real People, Real Lives

Our clients are real people with real lives. We know the work we do impacts you deeply and long after you leave our office.

We know your life impacts your decision making, availability, and more. We have honest conversations at every step about your choices and the costs, both monetary and otherwise. We work with your schedule as much as possible, offering appointments outside of regular hours when needed.

We know you have a lot going on in your life right now, and we will make every effort to connect you with other professionals when required. We know speaking to a lawyer is only one piece of the puzzle; we try to help with the other pieces where we can.

Honesty & Respect

We respect our clients and each other. We will be honest with you, even when it's hard for you to hear.

We are also respectful with opposing parties and opposing counsel, because we believe reaching the best outcome for you and your family is easier when everyone feels they are treated with kindness. Likewise, honesty means everyone is on the same page and more likely to find a lasting solution together.



I suppose I am not the "average" attorney or what some people may think attorneys are like. I don't think I know everything and don't act like I do. However, what I do know, I know well. I didn't dream of becoming a lawyer ever since I was a child. I didn't immediately go to college once I graduated from high school, and I didn't attend law school in my 20's. I was born and raised in inner-city Chicago and prior to becoming an attorney, I was married, had 2 daughters and was working on a decade of being an officer with the Cook County Sheriff's Department. Through the years I have worked with, and worked for different agencies and clients. I mention these things because I strongly believe that a truly competent attorney should have life experience in addition to "book" learning. It may sound incredible but I actually became a lawyer because I didn't like or trust a lot of lawyers, and I wanted to make a difference in the community and especially for people that were disadvantaged and unprivileged. I have been a licensed attorney in Florida since 2007 and have helped hundreds if not thousands of people in divorce, child custody, child support, criminal cases (former Assistant Public Defender), and a myriad of other legal matters. I am a voracious reader and will be a lifetime student of humanity. If I don't readily know an answer I will definitely find the answer and ultimately a solution.

Mario R. Theodore

I am the product of immigrants and have family members whose first language is not English. I have helped people from around-the-world with immigration issues ranging from simple visa renewals all the way through removal proceedings.

I am a husband, father, son, brother, grandfather, a Big Brother (mentor), and more. My reputation is everything, and I want you to consider Fair Price Legal as YOUR law firm!
