Fees

FEE POLICY – REAL ESTATE

Experience has shown that the lawyer-client relationship works best when there is a clear understanding about fees and payment terms.  I charge a reasonable fee for service, particularly based upon my extensive experience in the field.

I bill clients for actual costs advanced on a client’s behalf (disbursements), such as search fees, land titles registration fees, and courier charges.  Disbursements are not part of the professional fee.

My primary goal is to provide my clients with legal representation on a cost-effective basis.  Please call or e-mail me for a quotation.
