We understand that seeking legal counsel after being charged with a criminal offence can cause overwhelming emotional stress and the unplanned expense may place a strain on your finances. We are therefore committed to establishing a trusting and transparent working relationship with you from the time you first enter our office and throughout the entire case.
Our services are quoted as a fixed flat fee, not based on an hourly rate. Our clients see the benefits of the fixed flat fee as it provides them with the certainly of knowing the costs up front. This clarity helps lessen the stress already associated with this traumatic situation. Our payment plan and payment options further assist them in managing the cost of this unexpected event. In rare occasions, some files require the fee being a blend of fixed flat fee and our hourly rates.
In our comprehensive consultation with you, for which a fee is charged, we will take the time to listen to your understanding of the case, and your concerns and objectives. We will explain the law, possible defences and strategies, the next steps to take, and an approximate cost of our representation. The consultation fee applies towards your initial deposit once you decide to hire us. Upon being hired we attend to making court appearances on your behalf, collecting all the evidence against you, analyzing the allegations and your possible defences. In our second meeting we are able to confidently explain the case against you and identify your legal defences and best options and strategies going forward. We set the fixed flat fee and a payment plan and then diligently work towards a resolution of your case.
As our clients come from all walks of life and have diverse financial means, we are more than willing to discuss payment plans that meet your needs and still offer you the best/benefits of our legal services.
There is no area of criminal law that we have not been involved. We have defended thousands of clients, who have been charged with the most minor of charges to the most serious. As former crown prosecutors, we have the unique experience of knowing both sides of law- defence and prosecutors. This experience and our proven track record have earned us the reputation as one of Calgary’s most sought out criminal defence teams.
Let us represent you and we will deliver the best possible results for your case.
