LEGAL FEES

INITIAL CONSULTATIONS
Initial consultations are usually the first step in determining your legal options. It is an opportunity to discuss your matter in a confidential and safe environment without obligation on the part of the lawyer or client. Our reasonable consultation fee of $50 ensures that expensive legal fees don't prohibit our clients from obtaining legal information and guidance before deciding on a course of action.

Our role during a consultation is to listen closely and provide clients with information and guidance on their rights and legal options.

Initial Consultation Fee: $50

We offer affordable initial consultations for any matter within our areas of practice. Initial consultations are in-person, 30 minutes in length and take place at our office in Scarborough. Please call or email us to schedule a consultation.

CONTINGENCY FEES

Contingency fee arrangements are available for certain matters.

Where a contingency fee arrangement is used, the client does not pay an hourly rate or fixed-fee to the lawyer. Instead, a percentage of the money recovered goes towards legal fees. If there is no recovery, the client does not pay any legal fees to the lawyer (the client must still pay for disbursements, which are out-of-pocket expenses that a lawyer incurs on the client’s behalf).

In a typical contingency fee arrangement, the lawyer would receive 25% to 35% of the amount recovered, depending on how risky the case is.

Please contact us to discuss whether a contingency fee arrangement would be suitable for your claim.

HOURLY RATE FEES

If retained for a service that isn't covered by a flat-rate fee and is not suitable for a contingency fee arrangement, the hourly rate charged is typically $250 per hour.

If we agree on a fixed-fee arrangement, but new information arises that makes the matter significantly more complex, or if additional steps in the proceeding are necessary (i.e. motions, additional party claims, etc.), an hourly rate will be charged for the additional time spent.

Please contact us for an estimate of the time commitment required for your matter.
