May an Attorney charge for travelling on a Party and Party Scale for time spent travelling to and from Court for the service and filing of Pleadings (in addition to the actual service and filing fee) in cases where the Firm does not have a messenger?

~ Kimberley Nel When considering the tariff closely, you will notice that where the tariff allows the Attorney a fee for the drafting/preparing of a Pleading, the filing and service fee is included in that fee and can a separate fee for travelling to file and serve not be allowed.
