An up-front understanding of legal costs is a must. Our experience tells us that an affected individual is better prepared to decide on a course of action when he or she knows up front what the legal costs are for the different legal remedies available to him or her.


If you need a lawyer we would be pleased to provide you with a written statement of legal fees & disbursements up front. There is no obligation.


In addition we offer a consultation and in many cases a contingency fee agreement which permits the affected individual to make use of our services without incurring the expense up front. Do not hesitate to call us for details.


In an attempt to bring some order to the legal system, the legislators have imposed deadlines on individuals who wish to enforce their legal rights and seek their legal remedies.


There are such deadlines in Employment Law and if missed, you risk losing your legal rights and you may be barred from making your legal claim. Judges are not generally in favour of extending a deadline that has been imposed by statute or by contracts which have been entered into. This may seem harsh or unfair, however you must protect yourself and take the necessary steps to enforce your legal rights.
