Private Retainers

Toronto Criminal Lawyer Andrew Captan offers very fair and reasonable fees. But given that each case is different, Mr. Captan will need to speak to you in person or on the phone about what the fees will be in your particular case.

Mr. Captan’s fee structure for most clients is on a “block fee” basis. A block (or flat) fee is an amount charged, regardless of the amount of time spent on the matter. By operating on a block fee basis, clients have certainty with respect to what the costs will be for their particular matter(s). This means that, as a client, you can contact me as much as you need (within reason of course), without having to worry about additional charges.

For most clients, an interest-free payment plan can also be worked out, whereby you pay in installments, rather than in a lump sum. This will also be reflected in the retainer agreement. A financial assessment is completed during an intake meeting in order to determine the appropriate monthly installment amount.

Andrew Captan provides free consultations, and will be able to determine, at the outset, the nature and complexity of your case, as well as what the anticipated fees will be.

Legal Aid

An individual’s inability to pay for a lawyer should not prevent the individual from being able to retain a lawyer to vigorously represent his or her rights and interests.

If you cannot afford to pay for Mr. Captan’s services privately, you may be eligible for Legal Aid. Captan Law does accept Legal Aid certificates for all criminal law matters. If you are eventually granted a Legal Aid certificate, the government will cover your legal fees.
