The first step in our relationship with a new client is the initial consultation.
What to expect
This first meeting, which will last about an hour, is a chance for you to tell us about you and/or your organization and see if our firm is a good fit. We will explain your legal rights and options and recommend a course of action. If you decide to hire us to represent you, we will also discuss the scope and cost involved in any future work.
What to bring
Please bring with you any written material that may be relevant, such as an employment contract or severance offer, any HR policies, or important emails. Before meeting with one of our lawyers, you will be asked to send copies of any relevant documents, including contracts, emails, texts, and/or photographs. This will allow the lawyer to review the documents in order to prepare for the meeting.
What it costs
We charge a flat fee of $300 (+ applicable taxes) for these consultations. For any work we do beyond our first meeting, we bill our clients on an hourly basis at the particular lawyer’s hourly rate. We accept payment by debit or credit card, e-transfer, or through our online client portal.
How to book
To book a consultation with one of our employment lawyers, you can call or email us, or fill out our online form here. When you contact us, a member of our team will walk you through a brief intake process before scheduling your initial consultation. Once that is done, we are usually able to offer you a same-day or next business day appointment, either by phone or by Zoom.
