We recognise that it is important to our clients to be in control of the costs of their case.  We are open and transparent with our costs and provide regular cost estimates.  We are proud to be very competitive in comparison to other local firms, without compromising on quality.
We offer the following cost options:

Fixed Fees

We offer a fixed fee first appointment for £100 plus Vat making a total cost of £120.  At that appointment, we will advise you fully.  We will provide you with confirmation of the advice in writing.

Dependent upon the nature of your matter we then have a number of fixed fee options which provide you with the security of knowing what your costs are at the outset.

Full details of the fixed fee options available can be found here. (Please be aware that additional charges may be payable.)

Hourly rate

For the situations where a fixed fee option is not available, we will provide you with an estimate of costs on the basis of our hourly rate.

Legal Aid

Legal Aid is available to all parents (and others with parental responsibility) and children involved in public law cases where a local authority is applying for a court order, regardless of their financial situation.

Legal Aid is only available in private law cases, e.g., disputes between couples and parents in very limited cases if you or your child have suffered or are at risk of violence or abuse and can produce the documentary evidence required by the Legal Aid Agency to prove it.  In addition, it is always means tested.
