Our process is to negotiate a fee arrangement at the beginning of the matter. In cases where the services to be provided can be clearly defined at the beginnning of the matter, we will charge a flat fee. If the matter becomes more complicated than initially anticipated, we may charge additional fees at our hourly rate to cover the unanticipated work.


​We do not charge office expenses (for example: standard mail, photocopies, long distance) but we do pass on charges we pay to third parties on your matter (for example:  Court fees, Land Titles charges, registered mail).
