Areas of Expertise
Mike Morgan and the QICS team have provided our firm with consistently excellent service for years at a very reasonable cost. By not having to generate and itemise our own bills, QICS has freed up countless hours for our authors to spend on billable work instead. Highly recommended.

Solicitor & Associate Director
QICS was recommended to our firm by a trusted advisor of ours to assist us with charging our legal fees fairly for both our clients and for ourselves.
We engaged QICS’s services early 2021 and were assigned Mike Morgan as our costs consultant. His wealth of knowledge is incredible and his ethical standards are second to none. He lives and breathes the firm’s philosophies of fairness, balance and credibility. Mike is always available to offer advice and he has assisted us with improving our processes. Mike produces our assessments efficiently every time and we realise this is possible because he is backed up by a great team.
We feel truly thankful to have been recommended to QICS and would highly recommend them to others.

I have personally dealt with Alan Adrian of Queensland Independent Costing Service (QICS) for over 40 years and when it comes to costs assessing, in my view, he is the best of the best. He is a great person and knows EVERYTHING about the law of costs.
For the past 17 years Alan’s offsider, Michael Morgan, has attended our office on a weekly basis to cost our files. Mike is one of nature’s gentlemen and a most efficient costs assessor. We love Mike because he never ever lets us down, delivers on time, every time, and is easy to get on with. Our whole team, Directors down to Receptionist love Mike.
I highly recommend QICS, Alan and Mike for all your legal costing needs. You won’t be disappointed.
