Costs

Coote Family Lawyers will ensure you get the legal advice to meet your budget. We will provide you with detailed written information about our rates & an initial estimate of the overall cost of your case.

Legal Fees

To reduce this stress, we are committed to providing a transparent fee process here at Coote Family Lawyers.

Prior to making an appointment, we will advise you of the hourly rate of the solicitor you choose to see. There are different charge-out rates for different solicitors, depending on their experience and expertise.

Whatever your budget, we will ensure you get the legal advice to meet it.

We will provide you with detailed written information about the rates we charge and an initial estimate of the overall cost of your case.

Of course, many factors, most particularly the conduct of the other party, can affect your overall legal costs as your case progresses. With this in mind, we send you regular interim accounts so that you are kept up-to-date with your ongoing fees.

We will also provide you with written information about your rights in relation to legal costs and will provide prompt responses to any queries about your costs without charge.

We will not incur substantial disbursements (such as engaging accountants, family psychologists or barristers) on your behalf without discussing this with you first.

You will be asked to sign a written costs agreement which sets out our method of charging and will be expected to pay your bills promptly.

You may also be asked to provide us with money to be held in our trust account for disbursements as approved by you.

If you have difficulty paying your costs, you can apply for litigation funding, also known as legal financing, litigation financing and settlement funding, and we can point you in the right direction to achieve this.
