Fees

Why pay city legal fees when a better alternative is with Bayside Solicitors? We pride ourselves on being able to deliver high quality legal services at scale charges.
What is “Scale”?
“Scale” charges are set by the Government and are listed as part of the regulations to the Acts of Parliament that govern the laws for your particular case. The State Government of Victoria sets a “scale” of fees that they feel is reasonable for a particular legal service.

Problems

Bayside Solicitors prides itself on its ability to deliver a high quality legal service. There is no compromise in the legal services that we provide in comparison with the larger firms around Melbourne. We are ably supported by a team of competent lawyers and paralegals and are well resourced.
We see as crucial the accessibility to the legal system by all members of the public and this is why we have chosen to provide affordable legal services.
By continuing to charge at government scale rates we at Bayside Solicitors are very much in the minority now, in comparison with the accelerated costs of most of the legal profession, you get the same service. Call us now to discuss how our fee structures can assist you in pursuing your rights.
