Consultation fees are as follows*:

30 minutes - $150

1 hour - $200

Subsequent hours beyond  consultations are charged at my standard hourly rate of $200 for full representation or for unbundled/limited scope work**.

Retainers are required for full representation and limited scope work.

* Rates increased if senior counsel present.

** All rates are subject to change and are exclusive of applicable taxes and disbursements.


Coaching fees are as follows:


1 hour block - $175**

With this option, a self-represented person meets with me one-on-one.  I will discuss what has happened with your matter and what to do next.  I will provide you with  manageable tasks for you to complete on your own to keep your file progressing and answer any questions you may have.

Block fee due upon completion of coaching session.

** This rate is exclusive of taxes and disbursements.   Rates and service offerings subject to change.


Research fees are as follows:

$100 per hour***

Since Canada functions in a common law system (Quebec excepted), case law interpretation is often required.  Research can be time intensive and very challenging for self-represented persons.  I will complete research for you and provide summaries of case law.  I will eliminate  jargon as much as possible.   I offer this service for lawyers, too.

Retainers are required for research estimated to take beyond two hours.  For two hours or less, fee payable upon delivery of research. 

*** The standard rate applies to all research completed as part of a full representation retainer.  Rates and service offerings are subject to change and are exclusive of applicable taxes and disbursements.


I accept major credit cards, e-mail transfers, bank drafts, money orders and certified cheques.
