We undertake Legal Aid work in the areas of Criminal law and Family law. All other areas of law are currently privately funded and will advise you about the costs of your case and the various options available at the initial consultation.
Our private fee structure is competitive as we strive to provide quality legal services, at affordable rates whilst maintaining high standards of service. Unless a fixed fee has been agreed, our costs are based upon the time we spend on your matter and the expertise of the lawyer dealing with your case. We urge clients to contact us directly with queries in relation to funding their case as we also appreciate that social, financial and personal difficulties often give rise to issues necessitating legal assistance.
We believe in offering a Fee Quote that provides our clients with a sense of certainty. That is why, wherever possible, we work on a Fixed Fees basis. You can be certain the amount we quote for the work we do is fixed and transparent. This certainty is invaluable for those with complex immigration cases which may take some time to resolve. Businesses needing to carefully manage their cash-flow and budgets when seeking legal advice on Sponsor Licence matters also appreciate the certainty that their final bill will not increase from the agreed amount.
The time spent in the first consultation will form part of the fixed fee for the case. You will pay a deposit in order to have ‘a retainer’, sign a contract between us and you, and before we submit your application (in a straight forward application), or conclude your case, you will pay the balance due. If the case is ongoing you will be issued with interim bills to pay towards your fixed fee costs.
On some occasions you will be charged an hourly basis. All disbursements are in addition to the fixed fee. If you are subject to VAT, this will be added to the costs.
We are offering a first free consultation on Zoom. All you have to do is provide your details on the contact page and we will call you. After the initial call, if you wish to proceed with obtaining further advice, we will arrange free of charge first Zoom consultation
