Fees for legal sevices

"Good Advice, Reasonable Rates"

*(HST + Disbursements are additional)

Legal Aid Accepted

Affordable Justice 

Michael Rappaport is a member of JusticeNet, a not-for-profit service helping people in need of legal expertise, whose income is too high to access legal aid and too low to afford standard legaJusticeNet - logol fees.

Reduced fees will be calculated according to a sliding scale which takes into account the number of individuals supported and amount of income from all sources (including employment income, self-employed earnings, employment insurance, worker's compensation pensions, social assistance, commissions, child tax benefits, rental income, etc.).

Please contact JusticeNet at  1-866-919-3219  or  info@justicenet.ca to determine your eligibility.
