Have high lawyer charges ended up preventing you from getting justice when a dispute or a problem needed to be resolved?

High legal costs can be a barrier to getting justice. Have you been in the position where you could not afford to seek justice? Or perhaps you ran out of money while pursuing justice, and as a result had to accept an unsatisfactory settlement. 

As a group of New Zealand university researchers, we invite you to help bring about changes by sharing with us your experiences.

Share your experience, to influence change
