Do you offer legal aid funding?
Unfortunately Gorvins do not offer any legal aid funding or options. If you wish to use Gorvins to represent you in your case you will need to pay your fees privately or secure alternative funding. If you have home or motor insurance and your insurance policy covers you for legal expenses, then your insurer may agree to pay your legal expenses under the terms of your policy. If you are a member of a trade union, your membership may entitle you to payment of legal fees.
Does Gorvins Solicitors offer free consultations?
We offer free consultations on all eligible cases. When you first enquire our expert team will discuss your circumstances and if possible put you through to the relevant solicitor at your first point of contact.
How much will my legal fees be?
This all depends on the complexity of your case. Before we start your case we will establish what your fees will be so you will have an idea of what you will be paying before we start. We never ask for upfront fees (unless we are doing a conveyancing transaction for you) and only send you an invoice once the case has finished.
