How we work

at KDK Family Law

Our Ethos

Our ethos is to protect the interests of our clients while resolving disputes in a sensible manner as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. 

Our Goal

Our goal is to provide high quality affordable legal advice and representation in family law matters through upfront fixed pricing based on value and outcomes.

You should pay for value,
outcomes, and results.

NOT TIME

We provide a personalised solution-focused approach, and affordable upfront agreed fixed prices for your peace of mind 

We offer an alternative to legal services provided on a time billing basis. People going through separation have enough problems on their mind without having to worry about budgeting for uncertain legal fees.

We take your instructions, identify the problem, give you advice, offer solutions and options, scope the necessary work to achieve the outcome needed, and commit to an upfront fixed price. This gives you certainty about your legal costs and avoids the unwelcome ‘bill shock’ that is often associated with time-billing. However, we also offer time billing as an option if you prefer.

Our process is to start with a free and discrete 15-minute initial phone consultation to assess your situation and provide you with preliminary guidance and advice. From that point, you may have enough information to solve your problem. However, if you need more help or detailed advice, we are available for a fixed price initial appointment for $440 inc GST. 

Step One

We can speak with you over the phone for a free 15-minute consultation. If you need our help or detailed advice after our free call, we can schedule an appointment at our office.

Step Two

We listen to your needs, determine your goals, find out where you are at financially, and limit the scope of our involvement in your case to perform the specific tasks needed within your financial means.

Step Three

We are available as needed for appointments to give you personalised once off legal advice or opinions, legal advice on an ad-hoc basis, ongoing legal representation, and second opinions.
