Many criminal counsel will quote a fee at the initial consultation. That is impossibly unfair to the client. In most cases, it is difficult to predict with any degree of accuracy the cost of the defence of a criminal charge or charges at the outset of a case.
I generally, but not always, quote a block fee for a particular proceeding. Once disclosure from the prosecutor is made available to me, I am in a much better position to estimate fees through the various proceedings or stages of the process.
I am willing to assist in anyway I can to make my fees affordable including payment plans.
My fee structure is certainly competitive given my experience and expertise.
On many occasions to make justice more accessible to more people I have offered my services at a greatly reduced rate.
