Your initial consultation is free. During your consultation with Melinda Walker, she will explain her services and talk to you about your case. This gives Melinda an opportunity to explain her services and how she can assist you. It also gives you the chance to consider whether you want to use Melinda as your solicitor.
Fees are calculated based on the complexity of your case, how much preparation is required and how many Court appearances are needed. Barrister’s fees and extra disbursements (such as Psychological Reports) are additional to fees paid to the Solicitor.
Also, the skill and experience of the advocate you chose influences the cost, with more experienced solicitors and barristers costing more.
Melinda will give you an idea of the likely costs of your case and the required fees upfront. Fees must be paid in advance of work. Melinda will give you a fixed fee which will give you certainty about the costs of your case. If your case is unusual or particularly complex, an hourly rate may be charged.
The fee structure will be discussed and decided with you prior to any work commencing so you are clear about your financial obligations.
