Our fees are based on the Supreme Court scale set by the Judiciary in accordance with what the Judges consider is fair and reasonable. Even if asked to provide an estimate any lawyer would be remiss in doing so without a proper cost assessment. Charging on a percentage basis is illegal in Australia. We only charge you for the work we do on a ‘per item basis’. We refer the file at the end of a matter to an independent cost assessor. They review the file and carry out an assessment based on the Supreme Court scale, the client agreement and the actual work done. It’s the most fair and independent process available.
