How we charge
No Hidden Costs
We pride ourselves in being honest and open about legal costs with our clients from the outset. We appreciate that rising legal costs are a real concern for many clients. We offer a clear pricing structure so that the price we quote is the price you will pay and there will no hidden charges.
First Consultation Free
All of our initial consultations are free of charge irrespective of how long the meeting may take. This ensures that we have sufficient time to fully understand the needs of our clients and the issues involved, as well as to give clear guidance about the options open to them and the likely associated costs. It also enables our clients time to fully digest the advice given and to ask any questions without having to clock watch.
Hourly Rate Work
In many circumstances it is difficult to know at the outset exactly how much work will be required to complete a matter as it will dependant upon how the case progresses. In such circumstances where a fixed fee cannot be offered a realistic costs estimate will be given. Our policy is to invoice monthly to ensure that our clients can keep up to date with their legal costs, and we review our costs estimates every 3 months. Should additional work be required than originally envisaged resulting in a costs estimate being exceeded, specific authority is always sought from the client before commencing the work and incurring additional costs.
We offer fixed fees to our clients where possible. In particular we fix costs for all residential conveyancing work, wills, lasting powers of attorney, uncontested divorce and many other areas of work. The fee quoted will be dependant upon the particular circumstances of the case. For a fixed fee quote please contact us on 02380 713 060
