Flexible Hourly Rate Fee Structure

At Caldwell Family Lawyers we will ensure that the legal fee’s meet your budget. Having a flexible hourly rate is perfect for clients that prefer to be charged per hour which means that they get billed for the time that is spent on their matter. Our rates are extremely competitive compared to the rates charged by other family law firms in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast.

We offer a free initial appointment, which gives you the opportunity to see if we are the right family law firm for you. At this appointment we will give you initial advice on how to move forward as well as advise you of the hourly rate of the solicitor you choose to work with during your family law mater.

There are different charge-out rates for different solicitors, depending on their experience and expertise.  Whatever your budget, we will ensure you get the legal advice to meet it. We will provide you with detailed written information about the rates we charge and an initial estimate of the overall cost of your case. You will be asked to sign a written costs agreement which sets out our method of charging and will be expected to pay your bills promptly. You may also be asked to provide us with money to be held in our trust account for disbursements as approved by you.
Once we start work on your legal case you will be billed at the end of each month given an itemised invoice that shows exactly what they have been charged for throughout the month.

Call our office to make a free initial appointment and we will discuss which package suits your circumstances the best.
