We never charge for an initial
consultation, and invite you to ring or email for an appointment.
Effective October 1, 2014, we charge $180/hour for cases in
District Court. We typically
require an initial commitment from you to pay for ten hours of our time
to take a new case.
For conciliation court hearings we charge a flat fee of $580 to appear
with you in Court, present your evidence, challenge your opponent's
evidence and make arguments to the Judge on your behalf. Or, for a flat
fee of $280, we will advise you on how to represent yourself in Court.
We will prepare you for your hearing and give you specific advice,
suggestions and instructions to effectively present your case.
Each case is a little different, and we apply the factors allowed under
the rules in determining our fees. While some exceptions, terms and
conditions apply to our availability and willingness to accept each
case, we always provide our clients with a written fee agreement that
clearly spells out the scope of our representation. A sample of our Fee
is here for public examination. We do not do any legal
work, or provide any legal services until both the client and one of
our lawyers signs a fee agreement. There is no attorney/client
relationship until both parties sign the agreement.
