At Armstrong Lawyers, we understand that clients want their legal matters to be managed in an efficient and cost-effective manner. As a smaller sized firm, we are able to deliver this to our clients without compromising the quality of our services.
When a prospective client makes an enquiry with us, our usual approach is to spend a little time to obtain relevant information and documents from the client (either over the telephone or in conference). We then advise the client what services we can offer and how much those services will be likely to cost.
If the client decides to engage us to provide those services, we may require the client to provide us with funds up front in our trust account to meet our likely fees. As the funds are deposited in our trust account, those funds remain the property of the client until we issue a bill to the client for our services (which will not exceed our estimate) and apply the funds in trust in payment of the bill.
