Our Costs

We understand that certainty about your legal costs is important when you have been charged with a criminal offence. Ward Keller offers an initial consultation for $200 including GST – and if you engage us on a fixed fee service, this will be deducted from your final invoice.

Ward Keller provides fixed fee services for certain criminal matters. If you are going to plead guilty to certain traffic or drug offences, we offer a fixed fee of $2,200 including GST. These offences include:

  • Drink or drug driving
  • Driving whilst unlicensed
  • Driving an unregistered vehicle
  • Driving at a dangerous speed
  • Possession of a drug implement
  • Common assault (not aggravated)

Before your first meeting, we ask that you provide us with any documents that you have received from the Police.  These documents may include a Notice to Appear, an Indictment (with the charges) or the alleged facts.
