Our firm believes fees should be transparent and legal services should be affordable. We use a flat fee billing system, which means you’ll know up front what the cost of your defence will be. That way you don’t have to worry about hourly billing or unexpected prices. We also recognize that it’s hard to pay the full cost of legal services at once, which is why we offer an interest free payment plan. We’ll speak with you about your unique financial situation to set up a plan that works for you so that you can focus on fighting the charges, rather than the fees.

Meet with us in our new offices located at 199 Front St, just east of the river.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are you going to do to defend me?

    That depends on what you’re charged with, the facts, and the evidence. If you schedule a free 30-minute consultation our staff can tell you what your options for defence are and the cost associated with it. If you can’t make a consultation in person let us know and we’d be happy to do one by telephone.

  • Is there parking near the Quinte Court House?

    Yes! Parking at the courthouse is free. If needed, the side streets around the courthouse are typically free for parking as well.

  • Where in the Quinte Court House can I find the court rooms?

    The court rooms are all on the upper floors of the building.

  • What do I need to know before I come to court?

    The Quinte Court House has a security check at the front entrance. Make sure you don’t bring anything with you that would cause concern. If you’ve signed the paperwork allowing us to represent you, you won’t have to go into court for most of the administrative work, only for specific events (such as a plea or if the case goes to trial). We’ll keep you updated and let you know if you need to appear in court.

  • Where can I get food near the Quinte Court House or the Aitken Robertson office?

    There is a Dairy Queen just a few minutes south east of our firm. Go south on Front St until you reach Dundas St and then go east. It will be on your left. You can reach a Tim Hortons and a Subway on foot in under 10 minutes from either our officers or the Quinte Courthouse. From our firm go west past the courthouse to James St. Take James St south to Colborne St and turn right. Follow Colborne St and you’ll see both Subway and Tim Hortons. Don’t forget that food and drink is not permitted in the courtroom itself.

  • If I need to make a payment what methods of payment does the Quinte Court House accept?

    They accept cash, debit, Visa, MasterCard, cheque and money order for payment.
