During this stressful time, the last thing you need to worry about it is mounting legal bills. We offer a free initial consultation with one of our lawyers so that you can get some information about whether you should proceed with a case. There is never any pressure to move forward. Instead, we give you the information you need to make the best decision for you and your family.
If you decide to move forward, in most cases, we can offer you a contingency retainer agreement so that you will not have to pay anything unless and until your case either settles or you win at trial. In most cases, we cover all expenses (including disbursements) on your behalf until the end of the case. We do not ask you to fund disbursements and we do not require you to take out a loan to cover the cost of those disbursements. Some firms do, so make sure you ask.
With a contingency retainer agreement, you receive access to justice through excellent legal representation without jeopardizing your financial situation.
The Law Society of Ontario requires that all lawyers offering contingency retainer agreements publish their maximum fee percentage on their website. In accordance with that requirement, Burn Tucker Lachaîne P.C. advises that our maximum fee percentage is 30%. This does not mean that we will charge 30% in every case. Rather, this is the maximum we would charge.
Every case is different. We believe that transparency in legal fees is important. During your initial consultation, we will discuss our contingency fee agreement and the percentage applicable to your case and answer any questions you may have. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with one of our lawyers.
By your side,
and on your side™
