Retainer

Retainer

retainer meetingBefore we can represent you at court, we require a financial retainer that is held in trust. The amount of your legal fees will depend upon a number of factors, including the following: the number of offences for which you have been charged, the complexity of the matter, whether the Crown is proceeding summarily or by indictment, and whether your matter is resolved before a trial date is set or proceeds through a preliminary hearing and/or a trial.

We offer payment plans, the details of which will be discussed between you and your lawyer. We do, however, require all funds to be received prior to setting a trial date or prior to the completion of your matter if resolved before trial.

We also accept Legal Aid Certificates. If you wish to Apply for Legal Aid, call 1-800-668-8258 or attend the Ontario Court of Justice a 70 Simcoe Street on any Thursday to apply in person.
