We do not bill by the hour
We’d rather spend time focused on your matter then watching the clock. We offer all our legal services at a fixed price* so that you can have peace of mind that there will be no unpleasant billing surprises. It means that you will not be charged separately for each phone call or email.
Fixed fee pricing ensures that we complete your work as efficiently as possible but without compromising effectiveness or quality.
How we decide on a Fixed Fee
In setting a fixed fee we take into consider the following factors:
Types of Fixed Fee Arrangements
Lump Sum Arrangements

A breakdown of the legal services into various defined stages and agreed fees to be paid for each stage – this applies for matters such as:

Our fixed fees do not include disbursements. We will provide you with an estimate of anticipated disbursements relevant to your matter. We only bill you for actually disbursements incurred. We believe in transparency and will not bill you for hidden miscellaneous or sundries items.
What are our payment terms?
For Lump Sum Arrangements, we will issue an invoice at the completion of your matter. For Staged Arrangements, we bill upon the completion of each stage.
Payment of our bills are expected within 14 days.**
* We reserve the right to alter billing arrangements as per the cost agreement issued to clients prior to commencement of the matter.
** We reserve the right to request monies in trust prior to commencement of legal work.
What our past clients have to say
Anyone who has experienced purchasing a home, knows just how stressful the process can be. Even more so when the property is a new development which can be complicated with land subdivisions, new titles etc.
Both Matt and Daniel especially from Contact Lawyers were exceptional in handling my purchase of a new town house. They were on the ball in keeping in regular contact with my bank and the vendor’s solicitors. An issue arose which almost delayed my settlement (my bank’s fault) and they went above and beyond to help provide a solution and rectify the issue. Honest, transparent, direct and no legal jargon. Couldn’t recommend enough and will be directing all my legal issues here in the future.
