We always aim to provide transparency about our fees and once you make an enquiry with us, we will always make an initial call to discuss the details of your case in more detail and let you know how we would be able to assist. We do not charge for our initial call. We find that working on a fixed fee basis gives our clients as much clarity as possible about the costs of their case.

We charge an initial instruction fee for each case which is paid on account once you decide you would like to instruct us to represent you. This allows us to start working on your case and provide initial advice regarding plea and how best to proceed.
