Our Principal, Glenn Thexton, is an Accredited Family Law Specialist and our firm works on a fixed price quotation basis for every matter that we deal with. This provides significant certainty to you to assist with budgeting and meeting your legal costs.
Before we undertake work we provide you with a quotation and advice upon any disbursements, or external costs, that you may face. For example, Consent Order applications attract a $145.00 filing fee with the Court which is usually met equally by both parties.
Our quotations are extremely competitive and we are confident that you will not find a better combination of cost and value in the family law field. We don’t believe in spending your money on putting marble floors in our offices and we pass those savings on to you.
Fixed price quotations have a number of very significant advantages for you. All too often individuals involved in family law matters unknowingly sign a Costs Agreement with their law firm which allows that firm to charge in excess of $500.00 per hour for work done by their lawyers, as well as charging you multiple times to send the identical pieces of correspondence by email, fax and post. As a result, many cannot afford to continue their engagement with lawyers and end up on their own in front of a Judge.
We also have a practice in the review of other family law firms legal fees and having those costed before the Costs Court or appropriate Legal Practice list in the State Tribunal.
