We believe that our client is entitled to have all the information available to them before they decide to instruct Solicitors. This includes being aware of how much a case will cost them.

AGREED FEES

We offer fixed fee services for a range of services. In most cases we are able to provide with a fixed fee option. This will normally be a set amount of legal fee that you will have to pay us to a certain stage in your case. Each stage of your case will attract another fee. We feel that if client’s are aware of what legal fees they will pay through their case, then still will ensure that your legal costs do not spiral out of control. We are committed in ensuring that our client obtains access to justice at affordable legal costs.
