IT IS NOT HOW MUCH WE GET PAID
BUT HOW MUCH WE CAN GIVE
Because we are small, and we want to help
We are flexible in our pricing - we don't have price tags for our services. We understand everyone's circumstances are different.
Because our law firm is very small, we keep our overheads low. We rather empower one more customer to find happiness, than to buy a Mercedes-Benz for our own short term pleasure.
No hidden costs, no nasty surprises
We cannot focus on getting you results if we are busy watching the clock and our billable hours. So we don't.
* Value based price does not apply to dispute and litigation.
Fixed-Fee based on value we'll deliver
This is how it works:
We discuss your case or matter with you to assess legal work and/or legal documentations that will bring you the results that you want.
If your case and matter meet the selection criteria, we quote you a fixed fee based on value for our services.
These matters are usually eligible for fixed fee arrangement: property conveyancing, sale and purchase of business, preparation of agreements, commercial, and some family law matters.
Dispute and court work are not eligible for fixed fee arrangement. However, we will do our best to give you an estimate of legal fees required by determining how many hours are needed to resolve the issues.
Only if uncertain
For dispute and litigation, because you too are uncertain how much time it will take
Where it is not possible to give you a fixed fee, we will charge an hourly rate as noted below. We will be reasonable - our senior lawyer won't do the photocopying or scanning.
We will record the time we spend and generally charge according to the following rates:
Partner and senior lawyer - $400 plus GST
Lawyer - $300 plus GST
Paralegal - $200 plus GST
Clerk - $150 plus GST
