Financial peace of mind through success-based fees

We operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not get paid until and unless we are successful in obtaining compensation for you. Our fee model is designed to alleviate the financial hardship and stress experienced by our clients, many of whom are unable to work due to illness or injury. We believe that access to justice should not be determined by a person’s financial circumstances, or their ability to pay, but the merits of their case.

How We Get Paid

The fee we charge at the end of your case is based upon a percentage of the amount achieved. The exact percentage charged in any particular case will depend on the complexity and risks of the case. Our agreements are based on the Law Society of Ontario’s standard form contingency fee agreement. Our maximum contingency fee is 33.3% for personal injury claims (excluding medical malpractice) and 35% for medical malpractice claims. Please note that these are maximum amounts only, and we will be able to provide you a specific fee quote once we have obtained the particulars of your case.

Many of our clients are referred to us by other lawyers. We value our referring lawyers and the trust they place in us. When another lawyer refers a client it is common that a referral fee be paid to that lawyer. Rest assured that if any referral fee is paid on your file it will be done in full compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct and the Law Society of Ontario’s guidelines. It will be done with your consent and the referral fee will never be deducted from your settlement recovery – it will always be paid from our fee.
