We aim to provide good quality legal service at reasonable costs.

One of the main concerns a client faces when instructing a lawyer is whether legal costs are affordable. As soon as practicable after instructions are received, we will advise you of the legal costs involved for the legal services that you require.

We provide our clients with a Costs Agreement which sets out the legal service to be provided, how legal costs will be charged for work done, an estimate of the costs involved and the frequency of billings to you.

Legal costs for any particular matter may be charged at a fixed rate or on an hourly rate depending on the nature of the legal service required. This will be dependent on a number of factors, chiefly on the amount of time that would be required to complete the work required as well as the complexities involved.

Please contact our office at (08) 9325 1700 if you wish to discuss the legal costs of any legal service required.

Costs Disclosure

The Legal Profession Act 2008 (WA) requires that all legal practices disclose to clients their rights in respect of legal costs prior to or as soon as instructions are received. For full details of these rights, please read the following fact sheets:
