Legal services, including representation, are provided on a stage-by-stage basis – for settlement negotiations, for filing, for mediation and for the hearing. This allows us to match the level and extent of service at each stage to a number of factors including the needs of the individual, the merits of the claim and the complexity of the evidentiary and legal issues.
