Free Case Reviews
We offer free case reviews for people who have received a denial of disability benefits, or anticipate soon receiving a denial. You would start with a free consultation with our support team. They will gather your information and arrange for our lawyers to give you a free case review.
In some cases, we will order a copy of your claim file from the insurance company or government agency. You get to keep the file when the review is finished.
Our lawyers will then review your claim. We will answer your specific questions, point out any deadlines, and explain what you need to do to maximize your chances of success.
We do all case reviews online or by phone. A case review usually involves 2-3 phone calls with our support team. This is because we need to gather information and then get back to you with the results of the review.
Even though this is a free service, we do require you to hire us under a limited retainer agreement. We do this so our advice will be 100% secret and protected by lawyer-client privilege. After we finish the review, you have no obligation to hire us, and there are no fees or charges.

No-Win, No-Fee Representation
This is our most popular service. We represent you in your disability claim or appeal. You only pay us if we win. This is called a contingency fee agreement.
We offer two types of contingency fee arrangements: 1) Full contingency agreements and 2) partial contingency agreements.
With a full contingency agreement, our entire legal fee is contingent on us winning your claim. There are no up front payments. If we lose the claim, you pay nothing to us for legal fees or disbursements. If we win, our legal fee is a percentage of the funds paid to you. Our standard percentage is 33.3% plus sales tax.
For a more complete explanation, read our article: What is a contingency fee agreement?
With a partial contingency agreement, you pay a flat fee up-front, and the rest of the legal fee is contingent on success. If we aren’t successful, then you never pay more than the flat fee amount. If we win, you pay a second fee that is a percentage of the funds you receive. The amount of the percentage will vary depending on your situation and the size of the flat fee payments. Often, percentages can range from 15% to 25%, but this is dependent on the situation.
Whether you have a full or partial contingency agreement, we offer a Fair Fee Guarantee. Call us toll free at 1-888-732-0470 for your free consultation and case review.
Legal Advice Consultations
We offer legal advice consultations for a fixed fee. These consultations are one-time consultations for people who need specific legal advice, but don’t qualify for a free case review. Common examples are people who are on an approved claim, are not concerned about a denial, but have questions about their benefits or other related issues.
The costs for one-time consultations go from $149 up to $949. The cost will depend on the complexity of what you need done. If it is just a phone call to answer questions, it would fall in the low end of the range. If you need us to review a few letters or an insurance policy, the price is usually in the $249 range. If there are lots of documents then you get into the $349 and up. We have to charge your provincial sales tax on top of the the amounts mentioned above.
When you need us to review documents, the price goes up according to how complicated the document review will be. The top of price range is for situations where you need a certificate of independent legal advice, and we have to do significant review of documents and legal research to deliver the service.
All consultations are delivered by phone or videoconference. We can give you a recording or transcript of the consultation.
We will always give you the price of the service ahead of time so you know exactly what it will cost. You then pay for the service and we hold your money in our trust account until the service is completed and you report 100% Satisfaction. If you are not 100% satisfied with your one-time consultation, we refund your full payment with no questions asked.
