We understand that cost is a concern when hiring a lawyer. Our billing structure is designed to ensure fairness, transparency and value.


We’re not afraid to talk about money. If you have any concerns or questions about the cost of your legal services – just ask. It is important that every client feels that they are receiving valuable advice at a reasonable cost.






Where appropriate, we offer flat or fixed project fees. This offers clients certainty and control. With a flat fee approach, you know up front exactly what our services will cost. Payment plans are also available to help spread out the cost and make it more manageable.





Some projects involve hourly advice. When this is the case, we invoice our hourly rate at 6-minute increments. Whenever we do hourly work, we provide a budget estimate and transparent, timely reporting so that you are always aware of the costs.

The land on which I practice law and raise my family is the traditional territory of the people of Treaty 7 region, which includes the Siksika, Piikani and Kainai First Nations, the Tsuut’ina First Nation and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to the Metis Nation of Alberta, Region III.


This land acknowledgment is intended to honour and recognize indigenous peoples as a small step towards reconciliation.
