Our Commitment to Excellence:

A Commitment to Quality

As a small firm we’re conscious of the case-load we take on. We select our cases meticulously to improve our chances of success, this explains our record-breaking percentage of wins… Just to drop some statistics here, in more than 300 cases that we have ever taken on last year, 98% of those were the cases which we eventually won…

A Passion for Justice

Our reputation is built on fighting for our client’s legal rights regardless of the background they’re from. That is perfectly shown when you notice that our civil/business cases are divided absolutely evenly. That means that besides helping good, big and small businesses we also help thousands of small men and women!’ “We fight from your corner”.

An Urge for Fair Pricing

On par with our passion for justice and excellence, the third work ethic which we stand by is the fair pricing. While Maema Attorneys has one of the best case wins record compared to many companies in our league, we’ve also have, arguably, the most affordable pricing among them all. In our opinion, that is our way of giving back to communities we serve.

FAQ

the most popular questions

Q: Is the first consultation completely free?
A:  We understand how much thought should one give before making that final decision of hiring a lawyer… That is why our first consultation is and will always remain to be FREE of charge. The R1 bill that you will have to pay is plain and simple reserved solely for one technical reason. That is so that a lawyer must in some way be hired or paid so to be obliged to the “confidentiality rule”…
Q: How will I be kept informed of my case throughout the whole process?
A: We value the huge importance of lawyer-client communication and we always keep the transparency between attorney and a client. Although we would like to talk to you bi-weekly on the phone, that would be neither practical nor productive.  Legal matters are known to be stretched in time and so we think it’s best of all to keep you updated on the new developments.  To you, it may often seem like ages have gone by with no activity or actions taking place. However, in reality, there’s a great deal of behind-the-scenes back-and-forth paperwork by paralegals. All for a sole goal, that on the day your matter is ready with no smallest issue overlooked.  In order to keep the price of legal services down while extending communications, we will work to keep you informed when a significant milestone takes place. So to respond to your questions in a reasonable time, we’ll reserve a weekly phone connection.  In addition, we’ll inform you when your presence is required, either in our office or in court.
Q: What will the legal service cost?
A: First and foremost, each of our clients is fully entitled to know exactly of the pricing. So at your very first visit, we’ll give you an approximation of what your fee will be looking like at the end of the day.  We encourage a frank, open discussion about our fees with each client at the time of the first interview.

Usually, and in our company’s case as well, the lawyer on the case gets paid under various fee arrangements. Such as:
Hourly fee:

On an hourly fee basis, fees are based on an hourly rate for services which were provided by our team and individual lawyers and paralegals.  A detailed, itemized bill will be given to you showing all work done on your case.

Flat fee:

When counted within the flat fee basis, your legal bill is a fixed sum for agreed upon services.  In such an arrangement of fees, no in-detail accounting will be made.

Contingency fee:

On a contingency fee basis, your legal fees will be based on the amount of recovery and productivity we get for you in the court. This approach basically means – no recovery, no fee.  You may have the option of choosing this plan in lieu of hourly charges.  Not all cases qualify for the contingency basis; we will tell you if yours does.

Other potential fees:

A pre-payment type of legal fee is usually required in order to begin to process your matter and you will be kept advised as to how that pre-payment is being used. We’ll always keep you up with detailed bills and payments made on your case’s behalf.

Certain cases may have a minimum fee.  This means that no hourly accounting will be made unless excess time is expended.
