Initial Consultation

1. Pinsky Law is a law firm providing a range of cost effective legal services to individuals and businesses in Ontario. A niche status and use of technology enable Pinsky Law to provide high quality, cost effective legal solutions to our individual and business clients. We also serve as corporate general counsel on a part-time basis for clients whose management teams require dedicated, in-house legal management and resources, but are not yet large enough to justify hiring full-time general counsel. We also represent clients in business, corporate, commercial and intellectual property litigation matters before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, and Federal Court of Canada.

2. We receive dozens of general and case-specific legal inquiries via eMail and telephone each week. We cannot answer these without review of documents, comprehensive discussion, analysis and clarification available in the context of a formal initial consultation. We do not provide free consultations. In the interest of cost-effectiveness, we offer a one hour paid initial consultation in order to substantially address issues and questions potential clients may have before retaining our services. All potential clients are subject to the initial consultation. During the initial consultation we review relevant documents, clarify facts and legal issues of your case, discuss legal options and strategies available to you, define what services you may require, and estimate a fee for your representation. The initial consultation DOES NOT establish client-lawyer relationship between you and Pinsky Law. Pinsky Law will not be representing you unless and until the terms of our representation are discussed, and mutually agreed upon, by you and Pinsky Law in writing. We NEVER accept clients without a signed representation agreement. Therefore, do not send to us any documents or confidential information unless we asked you to do so.

3.  The cost of the one hour initial consultation is five hundred dollars dollars ($500.00). Regular hourly rates will apply thereafter. The payment must be made BEFORE the consultation is scheduled. Initial consultations are typically scheduled within several days after payment. Telephone, Zoom, and eMail consultations are available. We do not credit the initial consultation payments to future work. This is because the consultation is extremely valuable in and of itself. The consultation is not a loss leader or an opportunity to make a sales pitch to generate additional work. This philosophy produces a high quality product useful to you whether or not you retain us for additional work. We have the incentive to give you a balanced, conservative, and straight forward advice, even if the information is not what you want to hear. You are not pressured into making a "future legal services" decision, based on an expiring consultation credit timetable. Follow the two steps below to schedule the initial consultation.

4. First Step - Payment. To schedule the initial consultation, click on one of the two buttons below. You will be taken to a PayPal order processing page, which will collect your contact information before transferring you to our secure payment processing gateway administered by PayPal. You can use your PayPal account to pay or your Visa, MasterCard, or American Express credit card. Once the transaction is completed you will receive an eMail receipt. The payment must be made before the initial consultation is scheduled. 



5. Second Step - eMail. Following the payment, send to us an eMail with a detailed description of your case, issues involved, and services you require, along with a payment reference number that will appear on the eMail receipt. It is helpful to understand your background and what you are working on particularly if you are not referred by someone we know.

6. Bear in mind that in the absence of a specifically contracted sum for a specific service, any discussed fees and disbursements figures are ballpark figures for minimum cases only. Forewarned is forearmed. Raise at the outset of your discussions with us whatever concerns you may have about budgeting adequately for fees and disbursements expected (particularly in litigation matters) for any task that you ask us to undertake. We do not underprice, overprice or cut corners. Keep in mind that In law, like in life itself, it costs more to fix a problem than to prevent it in the first place.
