Frequently asked questions

How much do you charge? What can I expect to pay for your legal services?


Prosper Law is a fixed fee law firm. That means we do not charge you based on the time we spend on your matter (which can add up really fast!). We will provide you with a fixed fee quote up front and this is the amount you will be charged for our legal services, regardless of how long we spend on your matter. If there are additional costs (for instance, third party fees), we will let you know about these in advance, but our legal fees will not change for the work we have quoted you for.




How do I start the process to get legal advice?


Getting fast and affordable legal advice has never been easy. Firstly, reach out to us by email, text or phone or complete a contact form on our website. We'll then contact you to arrange an initial consultation which can be by phone, email or Zoom (depending on your preference). Once we have enough information about your matter, we will email a fixed fee quote to you. Once you have agreed to the quote, we will get started on your legal matter and keep you regularly informed.




Is the initial legal consultation free?


Yes! We provide a free initial consultation so that we can get to know you, you can get to know us and make sure we are the right fit for you. We will also listen to you about your legal matter and ask some basic questions. If your legal matter isn't too complicated, we will provide you with an outline of how we can help you. All of this is free and you are no obligated to engage us to provide you with legal advice.




Do you only provide legal advice to businesses? What about individuals?


We don't just provide legal advice to businesses. We also provide legal advice to individuals who are thinking about running a business or operating a business as a sole trader. We even provide legal advice to individuals seeking legal advice about their employment; including senior staff, managers and executives.

Are you a 'typical' law firm?


No way! At Prosper Law, we do things differently. We use technology, we are friendly and approachable and go above and beyond for our clients, without adding those 'extras' onto your bill at the end.

How many lawyers will work on my matter? Do you use paralegals?


When you receive legal services from Prosper Law, they are provided by one lawyer only; Farrah Motley. Farrah is a qualified commercial lawyer with a wealth of experience dealing with commercial legal matters. We do not use paralegals on our clients' legal matters.




When do I have to pay for legal services?


When you have to pay for your legal services depends on the type and complexity of your legal matter and the time it will take to complete our legal services. For example, if your matter requires us to provide you with a one-off contract, we will bill you at the end of your legal matter. Alternatively, if your matter involves ongoing or complex legal advice, or incurring disbursements and costs on your behalf, we may request payment up front into our trust account, or monthly billing.
