* This quote assumes that parties are in  agreement over the essential terms of separation as they relate to all issues relevant to divorce at the time of the consultation. These terms include i) child custody and access, ii) division of family property, iii) child support, and, iv) spousal support. The quoted amount does not include costs related to acquiring independent legal advice for a spouse, which will be needed prior to executing the agreement.

** We bill all contested family law matters on an hourly rate basis, plus disbursements and HST. Family Law matters are usually billed out of amounts held in trust for the payment of your legal bill. We usually ask that your retainer be refreshed as work is completed on your file and your retainer is depleted. In some cases, alternate payment methods may be possible to fit your particular needs and financial limitations. Contact us further if you are interested in discussing alternate payment options.

Criminal Matters
All Criminal Matters* Please Contact.

* We bill all criminal matters on a block fee basis. Therefore, you will know upfront exactly how much you will be charged to get you to the next stage in your matter, and there will be no additional ‘hidden’ charges and fees. The block fee charged will depend on the nature of the offence, the complexity of the case, and the extent of the work anticipated.

* This rate assumes that there are two meetings (a will instruction meeting and a signing meeting), that you fill out your wills booklet, and that your will instructions are simple, straightforward, and do not involve the creation of complicated distribution schemes, multiple wills to manage the property of a single testator, or complex trust arrangements. If you require a complicated distribution scheme, a complex trust arrangement, or multiple wills, our fees will reflect the complexity of the estate and the amount of work required.
