Initial Consultations

INITIAL CONSULTATIONS

Our initial consults are cost effective and the most usual way we commence our relationship with new clients 

$99 Initial Legal Consultations

Since the establishment of Avenue Solutions in 2011, we have offered fixed fee initial consultations at a rate which makes the service widely accessible. 

During our initial consult, the fixed fee for which is $99 inc GST, we will open a matter, listen to the issues you want to discuss and, if we can, provide you with preliminary legal advice during the consult. This preliminary advice will be confirmed by a follow-up email setting out the background of what was discussed, the relevant issues identified, and any preliminary advice given. 

The initial consultations are untimed but usually take approximately 1 hour. The total time we spend on initial consultations, including preparing the post-consult email, generally results in the effective hourly rate applying to this service being well below $50 per hour, making the service very cost effective for clients. 

Some clients do not need further assistance after an initial consult, during which we can usually identify the relevant legal issues and options for moving forward. 

Initial consults can be offered for most legal matters.
