CCS Lawyers will empower you to make the right long term decisions about legal matters affecting your personal and business matters.    We can manage your legal matter from start to finish however,  if you prefer we can provide you with as much or as little advice as you need to allow you to DIY and manage your own legal matter.

We charge a standard fee for an initial consultation that will be offset against any further legal costs should you decide to instruct us to act for you in your matter.  We will provide you with clear and predictable legal fees prior to commencing work on your matter.
