Facing a legal issue can be overwhelming, especially when you’re unsure where to start. While an initial consultation with a lawyer is often a first step, it isn’t designed to offer legal advice. That’s why we offer our Quick Assessment service—a more accessible, cost-effective way to gain a preliminary understanding of your legal situation.

Why Choose a Quick Assessment?

  1. Enhanced Access to Justice: Many people hesitate to engage a lawyer due to the potential costs involved. Our Quick Assessment offers an affordable alternative.
  2. Empowerment Through Understanding: Gain a clearer understanding of your legal matter, empowering you to take informed steps.
  3. Predictable Pricing: For a fixed fee of $600, you can access this service, before deciding whether to commit to other costs.
  4. Wider Understanding of the Legal System: The Quick Assessment service helps a broader section of society have a broad understanding of the justice system’s workings as it relates to their dispute or issue.

What Does a Quick Assessment Include?

A Quick Assessment serves as an intermediary step before you decide to engage us as your legal representatives. For the fixed fee of $600, you will receive:

  1. A request to provide details about your situation and relevant information.
  2. Brief advice summarising the applicable law, offering a strategic overview of your legal options.
  3. Communication via email, phone, or in-person—whichever you prefer.

Understanding the Limitations

It’s crucial to recognise that a Quick Assessment is also known as a limited scope retainer. Due to the lower cost, we spend less time on your matter, which means:

  1. We may not review all relevant information or conduct in-depth research that we would do if providing full preliminary advice.
  2. The advice provided is a broad summary and should not be relied upon as legal advice.
  3. We do not act as your legal representatives you remain responsible for managing your legal matter.

What’s Next?

After your Quick Assessment, you are under no obligation to engage a lawyer. However, if you choose to proceed with more detailed advice or legal representation, you can engage us at our normal rates. We’re happy to discuss these costs with you to ensure you have a clear understanding moving forward.
