What are your fees?

Our fees range from $260/hr to $420/hr plus PST and GST depending on the years of experience of your lawyer.  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. We require an initial retainer of the hourly fee to cover the cost of your first one hour meeting. After your first meeting, if you hire us to do legal work, we will determine the amount of your future retainer payment based on the legal work required. If you choose the legal advice and coaching service, we ask you to pay for each meeting in advance.

What information do I need to bring to my appointment?

We require your full contact information as well as the name of opposing party.  If you have any related correspondence or court documents that you want to show us, it is helpful to bring those to the appointment.  We can follow up with more complete documentation afterwards.
