Because we know what is important to you and we put you first. How do we put you first?
Well, every single case we take on is covered by our No Win No Fee Guarantee.
Many firms will only apply their No Win No Fee if they believe you qualify for it, meaning your financial position is assessed and judged. At Gouldson Legal, we don’t think this is fair. We know that even if you are doing okay today, tomorrow may be a different story. We want you to be okay today, tomorrow and every day after.
We have a 30% Cap. This is 20% lower than other major firms and makes a major difference to your final settlement amount.
A fee cap is the highest percentage of your settlement that any law firm can claim for the work they have conducted for you; their professional fees. The majority of firm’s cap this at 50% in accordance with the Legal Profession Act, meaning they can walk away with up to half of your settlement amount. We think this is unfair.
We believe you should get more, not us. That is why we charge at competitive hourly rates, not as a strict percentage of your settlement amount. Our 30% cap is an extra measure, to ensure that we will never charge more that 30% of the settlement amount plus outlays. This ensures that we are always taking the smallest amount, not the largest.
Everyone gets a free case review, for any case they bring to us.
At Gouldson Legal every client is entitled to and will receive a free case review, for any case they have. If you call us about something that happened at work, and then need to talk about something that happened on our roads, you can do so, both times, for free.
You can call and speak directly to a lawyer or submit an enquiry or free case review form online and have a lawyer call you. You explain what has happened to you, how this has affected you and why you wish to make a claim. Your lawyer will talk through the relevant legislation, insurance scheme or body policies (e.g., WorkCover Queensland) and give some initial advice to answer your questions and advise on the path we recommend as best suiting your way forward. Then, every member of our legal team, our Director included, sits down and talks about your case, this is the weekly New Case Review Meeting.
If the team decides that opening your case is in your best interests, you will then meet with your lawyer and begin the process of opening your case, confirming the best path forward and taking the first steps towards securing your best result.
As well as these three key differences, we have three simple principles that guide everything we do:
- We don’t represent cases. We represent people.
- We keep in contact. You’ll never be left in the dark.
- We work harder and smarter to get the best result for you. Not us. You.
