Questions And Answers
Question: Do you offer Chinese service?
Answer: Yes, we have one person on our team that can contact you in Chinese.
Question: Can you represent me in court?
Answer: We encourage our clients to stay out of court. The average Canadian cannot afford $20,000 on legal fees to go to court. Instead, we try and encourage our clients to settle their matter (come to an agreement.) This saves our clients a lot of stress and money.
Question: How soon can you take on my case?
Answer: We need to collect your ID, payment information, do a conflict check, and get a signed letter of engagement. Once we have all of this from you, we should be able to take on your case within a few days.
If you are having a common law dispute, or you are afraid that might one day happen. Reach out to our family lawyers and we can help. We can create a common law agreement for you for a low price.
Our law group can assist you regardless of where you are in British Columbia. Even if you are in a remote town, a 4-hour drive away from the next city, we can help you over the phone, email and video conferencing.
If you are looking for lawyers in Burnaby, consider our family law firm. We focus on keeping you out of court, which saves you money and reduces stress. Going to family court is very frustrating and is best avoided if possible.
Burnaby Family Lawyer- How To Pick A Good Lawyer
All lawyers are not the same. Most people want to know how to pick a good lawyer from a bad lawyer.
Most lawyers that advertise on TV and explain how they got “someone a big check” are not going to care about your case. We want to push you through a funnel, settle your case, and move on to their other countless clients. You need a lawyer that represents you fully and cares about you.
You want to make sure you are dealing with a lawyer once you sign the letter of engagement. It’s often best to best to an intake manager at first, but eventually, you want to speak to your lawyer.
The best way to find a great Burnaby divorce lawyer is to figure out how experienced the lawyers are. The best way to find this out is to go to the lawyer’s website and to read their bio. After, go on websites like Lawyer Ratings, and look at their Google and Facebook reviews. Also make sure the law firm does the area of law that you need. Don’t hire a business lawyer to do your divorce.
Burnaby Family Lawyer- Does The Law Firm Work Hard?
If you are in the USA, you can look at Avvo and Yelp. I’m not sure how reliable Yelp is for law firm ratings, as it seems to mostly be about restaurants and food.
Does the law firm work hard? Do they respond to you within 24 hours? Some attorneys take a week to get back to clients, and that’s not acceptable. Sometimes some law firms offer payment plans, if it’s a good case.
You need to get an estimate or even better, a flat rate. Many lawyers are afraid to do flat fees because they have no idea how long the case is going to take. A lawyer might be a hard worker, but if they don’t respond to you, the attorney might not be right for you.
