We will always provide you with an estimate of our likely charges together with an explanation of how our charges are calculated and then regularly update you on costs as the matter progresses. In some cases, such as when buying or selling a house, we will be able to provide a fixed fee. We make no hidden charges.
For some work, for example personal injury claims, we can agree a conditional fee or ‘no win, no fee’ arrangement at the outset. In cases involving employment matters we can sometimes offer the facility of a ‘contingency fee’, which is similar to the ‘no win, no fee’ agreement.
There are some limited areas of the law where Legal Aid may be available, for example some criminal matters and cases involving family breakdown. If this facility is available to you, we will let you know.
In all situations we will discuss costs and our various payment options with you in advance, and then provide you with an efficient and cost-effective service.
