Family Lawyer Andrew Heft Offers Clients an Alternative to Hourly Rate Billing Model

Mr. Heft offers Divorce Angels users an alternative to the hourly rate billing model. You can opt to be billed based on a “fixed fee per segment of the case” model. Your case is broken down into pre-determined segments, and a flat fee is applied per segment as the case progresses. It includes a one-time set fee for correspondence and telephone calls.

The set fees applied have been calculated by averaging the amount of time it should take to complete each segment based on past experience. The fee per segment will depend on whether Mr. Heft handles your case, or it is assigned to one of his two junior associates.

You know in advance what your fees will be, and the anxiety associated with the feeling that you might be writing your lawyer a blank cheque is eliminated. You thus gain certainty, a commodity that is most often lacking in the family law litigation process.

Mr. Heft also offers a performance based billing model. An agreed upon reduced hourly rate is billed, coupled with a percentage of any lump sum payment that is realized. It can be an alternative if it is suited to your case.

For those who mandate Mr. Heft’s firm to represent them, the fee normally billable for the initial consultation will be waived.

I have handled cases involving all aspects of family law, including custody, support, and division of property issues on all levels. I plead regularly before the Quebec Superior Court and Court of Appeal.  I seek to create the conditions that will result in the best possible outcome.
