What are your fees?

We charge $420/hour, PST and GST are additional.  We accept payment by email money transfer, cash, credit card, and cheque.

Do you require a retainer?

A “retainer” is an amount of money that is paid up front and held in trust, to be applied to legal fees when they later become due.  After your initial consultation meeting, if you hire us to do legal work, we will ask you to pay a retainer. It will be held in trust and later applied to your bill.  If you only access the legal advice and coaching service, we do not require a retainer.
