Legal Services

Our Goal

The firm’s goal is to provide timely legal services at a reasonable cost. We endeavour to build trusting relationships with our clients by emphasizing confidentiality and open, reliable and continuous communication. Our fee structure varies from flat rates to hourly rates and contingency fees, depending upon the individual client and the type of work required. The firm works with each client to develop a fee structure to meet individual needs. On certain files we charge no fee until settlement or judgement.

If you have a question about any legal matter or need a legal opinion, please contact us and we will get back to you with either the answer, an estimate of the cost of providing the answer, or guidance as to where the answer can be found.
