Our Fees

We believe that all law firms should be open and honest with their clients. This includes the fees that you might need to pay for representation.

At Harper Finch Lawyers, we will provide you with an upfront “all-inclusive” quote that will cover all the work we will need to do on your behalf to get you the best outcome possible.

Unlike most other law firms, we are so confident that we provide the best value in Queensland that we proudly list our fees on our website.
