Fees

Fisher Law is committed to fee transparency and reasonable pricing. The majority of legal services are provided following an agreed upon flat fee. This means one set fee for legal services is decided upon, and it includes all the legal work done by Fisher Law on your file, as agreed upon in your Retainer Agreement.  This fee structure means you are able to plan ahead financially and avoid worrying about a running time clock.

The flat fees are for Fisher Law's legal services and do not include:

  • 5% for Alberta GST (mandated provincial tax);

  • 5% for disbursements (including regular post, long distance telephone calls, copying and printing charges, computerized legal research, closed file retrieval fees, and stationery and supplies); nor

  • third party expenses (including: immigration application fees, couriers and messengers, expert fees, translator fees, and administration fees for banking transactions).

There are also payment plans available, should you find that paying all of the fees and costs in a lump sum is too difficult at this time.  Billable hours for the lawyers at Fisher Law range from $250.00CAD to $400.00CAD per hour.

Some examples of flat fee rates include the following:
