Frequently Asked Questions
How Long will this process take? Every case is unique but typically civil matters take a long time (often years) to resolve. Some factors that may affect the length of the process is which Court has jurisdiction of the matter, statutory time limits, and the willingness of the parties to come to a timely, fair, and effective resolution.
How much will it cost? It is very difficult to qualify for legal aid for civil matters. Your legal fee is based on a number of factors. Legal fees will typically be charged on an hourly basis. For personal injury matters, a contingency fee arrangement – typically 30 – 35% of your recovery, if successful – is available.
Does your firm offer initial consultations? Yes. A free 30 minute initial consultation is available for personal injury matters. For any other litigation matters within our areas of practice, initial consultations will be billed on an hourly (prepaid) basis.
Will I Win? No result can ever be guaranteed, no matter how strong the case. Typically, the burden of proof required in civil cases is a balance of probabilities – i.e. 50 + 1%.
How long do I have to sue? This depends on a variety of factors, but professional legal advice should always be sought on a timely basis. Certain matters, such as construction liens, have very short and strict timelines, measured in days, for preserving and perfecting liens. Most (but not all) matters allow up to 2 years to initiate a lawsuit. However, waiting until the last minute to sue may cause unnecessary complications, such as important evidence being lost or destroyed.
