How Is Cost Determined?

First, each case is discussed at length before we start during your free consultation. Our terms are then written using our standard retainer agreement that meets the Law Society rules. The cost varies and depends upon several factors, but we’ll ensure you are fully aware of what you will pay from the beginning.

  • If you have employee work benefits, our fee is calculated as a percentage of the total amount recovered and will not exceed 30% (applicable to retainers on or after July 1, 2021).

  • If you have privately purchased benefits, we offer a contingency-fee-basis, an hourly rate basis. In some cases, we may consider a flat fee or a combination.
