How much does it cost for you to represent me in Court?
Our fees depend on the complexity of the dispute and the time that we need to spend which we will ascertain after meeting with you. In addition to legal fees, there are various expenses that you need to pay such as court filing fees, fees for extracting certain necessary documents or reports, affirmation fees etc.
Do you charge for the first meeting?
For first meeting to understand the nature of your dispute, we usually do not charge.
How long does a litigation process take?
Depends on the nature of the dispute. If the case proceeds to full trial in Court, it will take at least 9 months. The losing party may also appeal to the higher court, which will take another several months.
After I file a suit in Court, can I still settle it out of court?
Parties can come into a settlement any time before the presiding Judge delivers the decision or hear the matter. Depending on the facts, sometimes it may be more cost efficient to just settle the matter out of court than having to go through the full trial.
How do you keep me notified about my case?
We understand the importance of communication between lawyer and client. We will update you by way of email from time to time whenever there is any new development in the case. We will also inform you when your presence is required, either in our office or in court.
