Flexible Fees and Pricing
We have pride in our ability to offer a range of fixed rates for a variety of legal services including Conveyancing Sales & Purchases, Wills, Powers of Attorney, Advance Health Directives, Divorce Applications, Leases & Guarantor Advice.
Some matters are more complicated, and we will let you know before proceeding if your costs would be higher so that you can make an informed decision. Some services can only be priced on a per case basis so if your legal requirements fall into one of those, be sure to contact us. We can discuss the matter with you and ensure you are fully aware of the costs before proceeding.
This gives you the peace of mind of knowing how much your legal costs are up front, so you don’t get a bill which was higher than you expected.

Having all those initial questions answered will enable you to make an informed decision as to where you stand, what your options are and how to proceed, and whether or not to engage us formally as your lawyer.
