Of course you want to know how much our services will cost you. That depends on the type of matter and how long the project takes. Clients almost always prefer to have a fixed price, so we try to offer fixed prices on most things.
In general, our prices are in about the middle of the pack. The solicitor’s hourly rate is somewhat lower than many other lawyers, as we don’t have the overhead of a large law firm, where many unproductive hours are spent (and billed to the client) for the paralegal telling the junior lawyer what’s happening and then for the junior lawyer, senior lawyer and the partner in charge all to have a meeting to discuss the matter’s status. We don’t need to waste time in status meetings.
We will usually quote a fixed fee after your initial consultation in matters where this is appropriate. If not we may be able to quote a price range depending on whether for example a litigation matter settles by agreement or proceeds to court.
In summary, we are not the cheapest legal services around, but we are also far from being the most expensive. We will do our very best to give you a solid idea of how much the total bill is going to be. We’ll let you know if something you want to do is going to increase the bill and we promise you personal service.
