In deciding upon an appropriate course of action in the legal arena whether it be deciding to institute proceedings, gathering evidence and discovery or deciding on how much money one should accept to settle a case, it is important we, lawyers and clients, try our best to use proportional thinking.
Proportional thinking can serve as a tool directing attention to different aspects of what is implied in any rational assessment of what is too much and what is too little. It is an explicit value judgment as to what is just right, rather than a simply intuitive or reactionary assessment.
Sometimes a principled position needs to be the subject of a fully contested hearing to prove the other party is wrong and bad and has always been so, but other times it may be better to settle early and to compromise on those precious principles when one takes into account the financial, physical, social and emotional costs of litigation.Read More
We often accept new clients on an initial free consultation basis but more often we meet with you, provide verbal and written advice on how we can help to resolve or begin resolving your legal issues and charge no more than $750 (+GST) for that work.
Over that, we make sure every client knows the likely legal costs and accepts our formal fee estimate before we go any further. That fee estimate can be designed to suit each client's special circumstances and can be fixed fee or hourly rate depending on what works best.About Us
