REASONABLE Fees: $250.00 per hour

The fee will differ when I act for legally aided clients who qualify for a certificate. I am on both the Family and Child Protection Panels of legal aid.

Fees are routinely discussed and interim arrangements are made at appropriate intervals so that the client is not met with a large bill at the end of their legal work.
