The process of hiring a lawyer can seem daunting. Many people have never needed a lawyer before and are unsure what’s involved or how much it costs. People who have recently been terminated or are facing other serious legal issues may be in no position to pay up front legal fees.

Our lawyers specialize in these situations and can offer contingency fee arrangements to make the process of hiring a lawyer as easy and painless as possible. A contingency fee means that you don’t pay anything up front and you are only charged a fee if and when we obtain a settlement or damages award for you.

How It Works

  1. Contact us now for a free consultation. We will review your documents, speak to you by phone about what happened, and assess your case, all at no charge to you.

  2. If we think that your case has merit, we may offer to take the case on contingency. You will fill out some paperwork but you won't be required to pay any up front fees.

  3. Once retained, we will vigorously pursue your case to obtain the best possible result for you. You will only be charged a fee of one third of the settlement we obtain for you. If there is no settlement or damages award, you won’t be charged anything.

"It was an absolute pleasure to work with Ben Millard at Millard & Company Barristers and Solicitors. Before signing on to use his services he took the time to answer any and all questions we had so that we felt confident when choosing him to help us with our legal matter. Once we signed on, this did not change. He was always very quick to answer our questions or address our concerns. He was very quick to let us know our next moves and did not sit on anything which was well appreciated. Would recommend to anyone to use his services. Kind, courteous, and genuinely great person to deal with!"

"It was a great pleasure, and a great experience, for our not-for-profit organization to work with Marcus McCann to assist us to rewrite our by-laws. Marcus was professional, knowledgeable and understanding of our issues and committed to helping us to frame our new by-laws in the context of both our organization's vision, mission and values and the law as it relates to not-for-profit organizations. He was diligent, completed the work within the time frame we agreed upon, responded to phone calls and emails promptly, and was always courteous to me and my colleagues. I thoroughly recommend Marcus for any organization who needs legal assistance, particularly in developing by-laws."

"Within a day I was connected to Ben Millard and he walked me through the approach and compensation once he understood my circumstances. He negotiated a good deal and it was settled in less than three weeks (would have been faster except for summer holiday). He was always available for questions during the negotiation and will answer questions on any future contracts vis a vis the severance package. With Ben I know I got the best deal i could."

"This is the second occasion for me reaching out to Ben Millard for his employment related expertise. I greatly appreciate Ben’s clear and concise counsel. His ability to distill the relevant and important issues from all the “noise” makes working with him to be efficient and effective. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any employment law matters."
