Data from the Queensland Legal Services Commission’s (LSC) most recent annual report shows the most common complaint people raise with lawyer’s governing-body is costs and charges.
More than a quarter of all the enquiries made with the LSC in 2016-17 related to the cost of getting legal help, with 620 people making contact over the issue.
From our very beginning Strategic Lawyers has been committed to doing things differently; we believe in putting the client first and so, wherever possible, we quote up-front for the work we intend to do.
When we opened our doors seven years ago, we were the first firm in North Queensland bring in fixed-pricing.
Fixed-pricing means before we start charging you we send you a quote letting you know exactly what we’ll do and how much it will cost.
Today we are the only firm in Queensland which quotes you prices for family and criminal law up-front and on our website.
We believe this lets you decide if you think we’re good value for money and you can even check our price against another firm and if they’re cheaper we will try to match it.
This is not about us being the cheapest – it is about being transparent by letting you look at what we do and recognising we are the best value for money.
There are some matters where it simply isn’t to the client’s advantage to work with the set-price formula.
Sometimes there is simply too much at stake and you actually want our team of experienced lawyers working day and night to ensure you get the best outcome possible.
For this reason, we continue to offer time-based billing, either at the client’s request or where matters are simply too complicated to deal with according to our fixed-fee models.
The best thing to do is to call us and book in for a meeting with one of our Senior Solicitors in Townsville so we can meet you, find out what’s going on, and advise you on all of your options while giving you certainty of cost through a Fixed Price Quote.
