Q: Is your office wheelchair/disabled accessible?
A: Yes, we have a specially constructed ramp available to assist anyone in a wheelchair or who has mobility problems.
Q: What documents should I bring to my first meeting?
A: The Law Society of Upper Canada requires that we obtain at least 2 items of personal identification from all of our clients. This requirement increases protection for you and for all other clients. Therefore, you should bring at least 2 pieces of personal identification, one of which contains a photo ID.
You should also bring any documents that are relevant to your specific legal matter: a written history of the important events (in whatever form you would like) as well as dates and issues for which you are seeking advice from us would also be helpful.
Q: I am not certain that I have a case that warrants retaining a lawyer. Do you provide free initial interviews to help with this decision?
A: Yes, we provide a free initial interview for personal injury cases and for some other types of litigation cases. If you cannot come to our office, we will come to you in hospital or at your home. Please contact us to discuss the arrangement of an initial interview.
Q: When and how do I pay for your services?
A: Payment depends on the type of matter that our firm is handling for you. In some cases, such as personal injuries, you do not pay a retainer and you are not charged for our fees until completion. You do not pay unless we recover for you.
For real estate transactions, we ask that you pay at the time of the closing of the transaction.
For other litigation and matrimonial matters, we require a retainer and will probably be sending accounts during the process of the matter.
We would be pleased to discuss with you the nature of your claim and our billing process.
