Your appointment will be with an experienced lawyer who will ask about the issues in your case and discuss the merits of your options and provide you with an estimate of costs to proceed with your matter. It is up to you to decide whether you wish to continue to engage the solicitor at the rate they estimate it will cost.


The policy at Joseph Burke Law is to not charge for initial appointments. Fees will only be charged for legal services once they have been agreed to in advance of providing the service.
