Our aim is to meet your legal needs over time and to give value for money.
We charge in one of four ways:
1. A fixed quotation: We give you a fixed quotation at the outset which we have to stick to (usually in relation to wills, domestic conveyancing or remortgages).
2. An estimate: Where we cannot give you a fixed quotation because we don’t know how much work will be needed, we give an estimate based on our best forecast of the amount of work needed and then let you know if it becomes clear that the estimate will be exceeded.
3. Fixed fee: If you just need some advice, our fee for an appointment lasting up to half an hour, including a letter confirming the key points of the advice after the appointment, is £100 plus VAT, which is payable on the day of the appointment. For existing clients who need advice on a minor matter over the telephone (up to fifteen minutes), including a letter confirming the key points, the charge is £50 plus VAT. We offer a free initial appointment for family matters only.
4. Running account: If you need to speak to us often, we use our computerised system to keep a running account and we will send you bills periodically based on an hourly rate that we agree with you.
