We pride ourselves on our competitive rates and transparency on costs. Where we can, we will offer you a fixed fee or hourly rate option. If we cannot offer you a fixed rate we will provide you with cost estimates on a regular basis.
For much of the work we undertake here at Rucklidge Law, we offer a fixed fee. This is where the work is quantifiable from the outset, such as when we are preparing documentation for you, such as a divorce application, separation deed, declaration of trust, Will or Lasting Power of Attorney.
For work that is not carried out on a fixed fee, we charge an hourly rate, so the total amount you’ll pay will depend on who works on your matter and how long it takes. We provide an estimate of total charges from the outset, as well as regular costs updates, so that you know where you stand.
