Should you decide to retain the firm, we require an initial retainer, which gets deposited into our law firm’s Trust account. The funds are then used/applied towards future invoices related to your matter. When the initial retainer is exhausted, we require an updated retainer. The amount and/or frequency of the retainer depends on the legal needs and the complexity of your matter.
Your legal fees will depend on your legal needs. Many factors can affect the total cost of legal services, including the complexity of the issues, necessary research, difficulty in dealing with the opposing side, trying to reach an agreement or settlement, the need to go to court, and unexpected problems.
Unfortunately, we do not offer free legal representation or accept legal aid certificates. If you cannot afford private counsel, we suggest that you contact the Newfoundland & Labrador Legal Aid Commission at 1-800-563-9911.
