What there is to know

Frequently Asked Questions to the law firm

How long will it take for you to resolve my legal case?

Every case we have is unique. Each case is unique because the case facts and people involved in the cases are always different. Since the case facts and parties involved in the cases are different, the time it takes to resolve them are also different. The time it takes to resolve your legal matter will depend on the legal outcome you want, the work that needs to be done on your case, the parties involved in the case, and the extent to which the local government and authorities are involved in the case.

Can you give me an estimate of the cost of my legal fees before I sign a legal services agreement with your law firm?

Yes, we will give you an estimate of how much your legal fees will be if we work on your legal matter. Our fee quotation is an estimate based on the time, work, and legal costs (e.g., court costs, notaries, translations) we think are needed to resolve your legal matter.

Can you tell me the exact total cost of my legal fees before you take my case?

No, we cannot tell you the exact total cost of your legal fees before we accept your case. We can give you a legal fee quotation that we think covers the cost of our legal services. The fee estimate does not cover unexpected complications in the case.

Can you guarantee me a specific legal outcome?

We cannot guarantee you a specific legal outcome. The outcome will depend on many factors specific to your case. Before you agree to work with us, we will discuss the details of your case and potential legal remedies. While we can guarantee that we will do everything possible to get you the legal outcome that you want, it is not possible to guarantee the outcome.

When working on your case, we will keep you updated on what is happening in different aspects of it, keep you updated on any complications in your case, and explain how case complications may affect the desired outcome. In addition, as we work your case, you may continue to make informed decisions about how the case is handled at each step in the process.

How are legal fees calculated at your firm?

Our legal fees vary based on the type of legal matter (e.g., family, corporate, civil), the complexity of your case, the parties involved in your case (e.g., local authorities, businesses, private individuals), the legal solution that you want, and the estimated time it will take our team to handle your case.

Do I have to pay a fee for you to review my case information and documents before my first consultation with your law firm?
