In most cases my fees will depend on the complexity of your case. If a matter is resolved before a trial (i.e. the charge is withdrawn) my fees are often considerably cheaper than if the matter were to proceed to a trial.
In order to determine the cost of defending your case, I offer a free online or telephone consultation.
Almost all of the cases I defend are done on a “block fee” or “flat fee” basis.
A “block fee” is a fixed fee that allows you to know exactly how much your case will cost. This covers all court appearances, such as administrative set date appearances, reviewing disclosure (the evidence the Crown intends to rely on a trial), pre-trial meetings with the Crown, judicial pre-trials (a meeting with the Crown and a judge) and appearing for your trial.
The fees and services are always clearly set out in writing in a retainer agreement. Many clients pay their fees by payment plans.
In my experience “block fees” provides certainty in knowing exactly how expensive the entire case will cost up front. There are no surprises or hidden fees with a “block fee” arrangement.
I do accept Legal Aid for those who qualify for assistance. I can speak to you and give you general advice to determine if you would be eligible for Legal Aid and direct you to the appropriate Legal Aid Office.
