Our principles and approaches to fees and charges
We are diligent and principled in all our dealings with clients and to guide us in our delivery of tailored fees to meet your financial circumstances, we apply the following:
We will keep you informed about the cost of work completed on your matter, in a clear and honest manner. Our Retainer Agreement and Cost Agreement provide a crystal clear and transparent breakdown of how much and for what services you will be charged.
We will provide you with written estimates of our fees. For services paid at hourly rates, we will endeavour to estimate required hours as precise as practically possible.
There are no hidden costs in our offers or agreements. The level of our accountability will provide you with comfort in understanding your legal fees and costs.
Legal service require a high level of qualification and professionalism. That is why expenses for legal fees may seem substantial. We endeavour to make legal services accessible to you and accommodate situations where upfront payment is unsuitable. For this reason, we offer flexible payment options, Payment Plans or Fixed Fees arrangements.
We offer free Initial Consultations for all new clients!
The Initial Consultation is free of any financial obligations for you to retain our services. You decide whether or not to engage us after the initial consultation.
At the initial consultation we discuss the following:
- The avenues available for you to resolve your matter;
– The area of law your problem relates to and the legal processes involved;
– Your rights, entitlements, responsibilities and obligations (if any);
– The required steps to resolve your matter and the appropriate forum (Court or Public Authority);
– What documents, information or evidence may be needed for us to adequately advise you or conduct your matter;
– What services your require and how we can assist you with the same; and
– An estimate of our fees and the payment options available.
It is always helpful if you provide us with as much information and documents (if any) relevant to your matter prior to you attending your Initial Consultation. In any event, we ask that you bring all documents you might consider relevant to your matter to the Initial Consultation.
At your initial free consultation, we will provide you with a Fixed Fee Quote for further services if required. We will discuss your payment option during the initial consultation. We also offer representation on a “limited fees basis” for eligible clients.Book my free 1 hour consultation now
