At Inspire Law, we can assist you with a variety of employment law and other work related legal issues. We are a boutique law practice that is free from many of the demands of a larger law firm. For example, we have low overhead costs and will always handle your case in a personalized, attentive and focused manner. We accept only a limited number of cases at a time. Your case will not be put on the back burner as can happen within some law firm settings. We will treat you with respect. We will honour your wishes. We will speak with you in plain English. We will help you through your legal situation by gaining a solid understanding of the circumstances, adequately analyzing the situation, and then we will put our knowledge and experience to work for you!
Appointments & Fees
At Inspire Law, we understand the need for flexible appointment times. We offer meeting times to fit your needs, including evenings and Saturdays. If you would like to discuss your legal situation, please contact us to request a consultation.
Reasonable & Transparent Billing
At Inspire Law, we understand your concerns about maintaining reasonable and transparent legal costs. Typically, the legal services we provide are billed at our regular hourly rates. For some commonly provided and straight-forward legal services, we may simply charge a flat fee. It depends upon what each individual case requires. For example, when preparing demand letters to employers on behalf of employees, we may charge a flat fee, or a flat fee and a percentage. In the right case, when acting on behalf of employees, we may be willing to consider a contingency fee retainer agreement, under which we will not collect fees until you collect fair compensation.
Once an agreement is made between you and the lawyer to engage legal services, we will sign a retainer agreement outlining the terms upon which we will provide services to you. We will always discuss payment and costs associated with your particular case with you prior to entering into a retainer agreement.
Our office accepts cheques, interac e-transfer, and in some circumstances cash as payment for services.
In many cases, it is helpful to provide to us before your appointment a fully completed New Client Intake Form. Providing this fully completed form in advance will help us to maximize the amount of time we spend providing you with legal advice, and minimize the time we need to spend gathering the information required to provide you with legal advice. This will help to minimize the legal fees we will charge you. This form is subject to legal privilege.
On your first visit with us, please bring:
- A form of government issued photo identification. You will typically be required to complete a client identification and verification form (as is required by Law Societies).
- Any records you think could be relevant (whether helpful or harmful to your case). While the brief time within which consultations occur does not permit us to conduct a comprehensive review, it is still helpful to bring your records with you.
- If not already provided in advance, your fully completed New Client Intake Form.
Due to the high volume of requests we receive, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to respond to every request. We accept only a small number of cases at a time. If we do not take on your case, it is likely simply because our case load is full at that time. If you request a consultation, we typically do our best to reply within two to four weeks, though it is not possible for us to reply to all requests.
In addition, please understand that we do not represent you unless and until a retainer agreement is signed, describing the terms of our relationship.
Until such time as that occurs, you should continue to pursue other alternatives, particularly if your legal needs are urgent. Please provide as full and complete information as possible.
