Are you getting good value...?

At the Burnaby Deer Lake Law Group, we understand that your ultimate goal is a resolution of your issues in a timely and amicable manner, at a reasonable cost. We charge a rate of $300 per hour for legal services, and mediation services are billed at $250 per hour.
We will do our best to provide you with an estimate of your anticipated costs for the various services that we offer that are not billed on a fixed-fee basis.
