A block fee provides you with far greater certainty as to what your legal fees will be, compared to an hourly rate. These fees will also be confirmed in writing with a signed and dated retainer agreement.
A retainer agreement is a contract that outlines the legal service(s) a lawyer will provide to you. Our retainer agreements will also include the criminal charges Ms. Fernandes will be representing you on, her fees and details about your solicitor client relationship with her.

Legal fees can get expensive. Unfortunately matters in the criminal justice system usually take anywhere from several months to a few years before they are resolved.
The costs can add up during this time. Unanticipated expenses can arise in other areas of your life, when you least expect it.
To assist clients, we accept payments on monthly, or bi-monthly basis until fees are paid in full. All of these details are included in a retainer agreement to provide you with greater financial certainty and peace of mind.
