We love welcoming new businesses to Corktown, and so here’s a special shout-out to Aluvion Law, who have recently gone through a rebrand and relaunch and are ready to serve the community.

Here’s the scoop:

Monica Goyal Professional Corporation is relaunching as Aluvion Law.  Moving to Corktown six months ago marked the beginning of a transformation for the young law firm.  The addition of new lawyers and support staff has expanded the companies capabilities.  Aluvion continues to focus on helping individuals and small businesses, but now is proud to offer a new ‘fixed rate’ billing model.  Aluvion’s focus on transparency and efficiency is part of it’s efforts to drive down legal costs, and ensure that all members of the Corktown community have the ability to access legal services at a fair price.

You can read all about Aluvion’s fixed rate legal services at their snazzy-looking website.
