Lower Overhead And Less Expensive Fees
We have lower overhead than the big and bulky downtown firms. A law firm, like any other business, must incorporate its overhead costs into the fees it charges to its clients. The math is simple; higher overhead usually means that a client will pay higher legal fees.
How do we limit our overhead? First, Zvulony and Co is located in north Toronto where the costs of office space is considerably less than office space in downtown Toronto.
We leverage the latest technological innovations to help us work more efficiently, save costs and to provide better service. Our paperless policy limits the need for expensive office space to store all that unnecessary paper. We use a leading edge telephone system that allows calls to be forwarded to our Toronto lawyers directly. Such a system costs us a fraction of hiring a traditional telephone receptionist. We are then able to pass those savings on to our clients.
