INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE COURTROOM
We are a general practice law firm that focuses on commercial transactions, civil litigation, family law and tax law. Working hard to protect and advance our clients’ interests is the building block of our practice, and we work tirelessly to achieve this. Our legal work inside and outside the court room gives us a level of understanding that sets us apart from other firms; it gives us the ability to see the big picture where different areas of law intersect.
COST SAVINGS & VARIOUS FEE ARRANGEMENTS
We keep our overhead low and take full advantage of leading-edge technology in our business operations. The lean way that we run our practice results in cost savings that get passed on to our clients. While most of our files are billed at an hourly rate, there are some instances where it is appropriate to charge fixed fees, hybrid arrangements, blended rates, contingency fees, collared fees, or success fees. Our goal is fairness and transparency.
We provide free 20-minute initial consultations on your matter (30 minutes if you have a valid referral number). The initial consultations are billed at a rate of $300/hr (+HST) if they exceed 20 minutes (or 30 minutes for those with a valid referral number). The initial consultations have three objectives: (i) they allow us to get a lay of the land and see if and how we can help you, (ii) they provide you with general information to help you consider your legal options in the context of the problem that you’re facing, and (iii) they allow us to present you with various payment options should you choose to formally retain us. There is no obligation whatsoever to retain us after the initial consultation and the information you provide to us is kept strictly confidential. No legal advice will be provided during the initial consultation and no lawyer-client relationship is created unless you formally retain us. Please complete the below Consultation Intake Form to get started.
