Charges are reasonable and take into account the amount of time to be spent and the complexity of the case. Of course, to some extent, they also reflect the lawyer’s level of experience.
We normally charge a set amount for all the various stages of any case and always do so in consultation with you, the client. We are also prepared to provide an estimated range of the total fee for our services, which can be more closely established once disclosure has been made available. In addition, we are more than willing to accommodate payment plans for you that are tailored to your personal financial circumstances.
Further, we will advise you well in advance of the funds required for each of the necessary stages of your case.
Our policy is to obtain the best possible result in the shortest possible time. Period.
We also will accept certain types of criminal cases that are funded by Legal Aid Ontario. You should contact your local legal aid office to see whether or not your matter is covered and whether you can qualify for coverage.
Justice Net is a program of Lawyers Aid Canada that can also assist you if you’re unable to pay the full cost of legal services. We are registered as a participant in this program.
