Slater & Gordon is committed to providing you with clear and complete information about your likely legal costs before you commit to taking any court action. We will explain, discuss and negotiate legal costs with you before starting your claim.
Nevertheless, it can be difficult to predict whether a case will settle early or proceed to a court hearing. Some court hearings can be short and others lengthy. If we cannot predict the likely direction your matter will take, we will provide you with information about the potential costs at each stage of your matter. Statistically, the overwhelming majority of cases settle before going to court.
