Services and Fees

We provide services on a “flat fee” model. Clients know what our fees will be in advance.

Initial Consultation

Services begin with a no obligation legal consultation. This appointment is offered on a cost recovery basis. An initial consultation lasts 60 – 90 minutes depending on the issue. The first 30 minutes are free. The cost for the balance of the appointment is capped at $175. At the end of the session, you will be provided a letter summarizing the meeting and any advice given. If there are legal issues we can assist with we will explain these in the letter.

Document Drafting

We draft documents such as wills, powers of attorney and representation agreements. We are able to quote a flat fee that applies in most cases. At the end of the initial consultation, if we agree to do further work for you we will be able to tell you if a flat fee applies in your case. For more information about our flat fee rates please contact us.

Mediation and Legal Advice

We charge $225 per hour for mediation and ongoing legal advice. We will provide an estimate of the length and cost of mediation at the end of the initial consultation. When mediation services exceed four hours we negotiate a daily rate tailored to the clients’ situation and needs.

Mobile Services

We offer convenient options such as meeting by Skype or at your home or office. Mobile appointments are offered free of charge in the downtown Vancouver area. We charge travel time for other locations.
