Most people don’t need a lawyer regularly and may believe their situation is unique. Kroon Legal are aware of what happens commonly and given our extensive experience we have been able to develop a fixed fee pricing model for matters we do often and with little complexity. We have fixed fees for:
- Uncontested divorce applications
- Simple Wills
- Enduring Power of Attorney
- Enduring Power of Guardianship
- Advance Health Directives
- Application for Grant of Probate
- Application for Letters of Administration (with or without Will annexed)
- Bank Guarantees
- Bail Applications
- Sentencing Submissions
We also offer a discount for multiple documents for related matters. For example two mutual Wills, two EPAs, two EPGs and 2 AHDs are completed at a discount of 30% when compared to having each document prepared individually. If it is not apparent if your matter can be completed using our fixed fee we offer a discounted hourly rate for an initial one hour appointment. After this appointment, if your Barrister & Solicitor believes the service required can be completed using our fixed fee service then the money paid for the initial one hour appointment will be included in the fixed fee.
For complex or disputed matters we offer a competitive unit pricing model which means you are only charged for the work actually done on your file. We offer a discounted hourly rate for initial 1 hour appointment which will be included in our fixed fee price if applicable to your circumstances. If a fixed fee does not apply then we can provide you with an estimation of how much your issue may cost.
There are ways you can help reduce your legal costs.
- Be honest with your lawyer – it is best they know your situation as sometimes dealing with the unexpected can be costly.
- Ask questions if you do not understand the advice you have been given. This will assist your lawyer as you will be better placed to make decisions and provide instructions to your lawyer.
- Be clear about what you expect your lawyer to do for you. For example, are you just seeking advice or do you want your lawyer to negotiate on your behalf or represent you?
- Be prepared before you meet with your lawyer. Prepare a list of questions you want to ask when you are at your appointment. Be prepared to explain all the facts of your matter in a concise manner and come with all necessary documentation.
- Use your lawyer’s time wisely. For minor matters which don’t need immediate attention, collect these issues up and email or call your lawyer when you have a number of things to discuss so they can be dealt with together; saving you time and money.
- If your lawyer asks for information or documentation, provide the information promptly as requested and in an organised manner. For example, providing a box of invoices in some sort of order (e.g. chronological or by the supplier) will mean your lawyer will be able to deal with them more efficiently.
