LEGAL COSTS & DISCLOSURE
At Esposito Lawyers, rather than provide client's with an unclear estimate, charging in six-minute increments at an hourly rate, we operate under a fixed fee Which means just that, your legal fees for the service provided is fixed.
Fixed fees enable a client to know what their fees will be from the outset and budget for their legal expenses.
Fixed fee services improve communication between client's and their lawyer as the price for such communication is a fixed fee. As a result, our experience is that fixed fee services provide a more efficient, transparent and cost-effective service for our clients.
We will provide a fixed fee quote for our professional fees and an estimate of anticipated disbursements (disbursements include items such as court filing fees, lodgement fees etc). Our operating costs such as photocopying, telephone charges, faxes and e-mails are costs that are included in the quotation for the fixed fee quote for professional fees.
With fixed fee pricing, you are not charged for every minute your lawyer spends on your file, rather the agreed fee for the work that is being done. Fixed fee pricing represents more value for clients.
Generally, for legal matters (not including wills and power of attorney's) an initial consultation is charged at a set flat fee of $385.00 (inc GST), which includes review of your documents, a letter of advice and the appointment. For more complex matters, this fee will be more and clients will be advised prior to the appointment and/or review of the documents.
Should further services past an initial consultation be required a fixed fee quotation will be provided.
