Costs / Fees

Initial Consultation

supreme courtWe understand that choosing an experienced and affordable criminal lawyer is an important task; after all, we are all that stands between you and the authorities.

We have a range of options from a free initial conference with our junior solicitors to a $220.00 fixed fee initial 45-minute appointment with a senior solicitor.

Fixed Fee Lawyer

If you choose Gatenby Criminal Lawyers to act on your behalf then we will provide you with the security of a fixed fee quote for goal-orientated stages of your matter.

We believe in providing the best possible representation and legal services in a cost-effective manner. We offer a choice and flexibility.

Often we can appear as solicitor advocates and reduce the extra costs associated with the criminal representation.

From the first appointment, we will explain the Court process to you and thereafter will keep you informed of your matter’s progress.

Because criminal law is all we do, we can provide you with the certainty of an affordable criminal lawyer at a fixed fee.

We will discuss our fees with you at our initial appointment.

Legal Aid

If you are unable to fund our legal fees, you may be entitled to Legal Aid funding. We can assist you with these forms and lodge on your behalf. Gatenby Criminal Lawyers are a Legal Aid Queensland preferred supplier.
