Our approach is flexible and always driven by our clients’ needs. We therefore believe it is very important to listen to what a client is saying — no two stories are exactly alike and in order to best help a client, their story will frequently reveal their concerns, priorities and expectations.
We understand that many clients are unfamiliar with what to expect when they decide to embark upon a legal action. Therefore, providing clients with clear guidance as to what can be a complex process is of utmost importance. Although we encourage clients to ask us questions about anything to do with their matter, we also realize that they want clear advice and recommendations.
We are also fully aware that clients can be concerned about the cost of engaging a lawyer. We are committed to full cost-disclosure; there are no hidden costs. Generally, we believe you will find our fees highly competitive — we do not charge for every email or phone call. Fixed fees can also be arranged for certain legal services (for example, divorce applications, property consent orders, and initial court appearances.
