- Why do I need a Solicitor?
We understand that using a solicitor can be a daunting prospect and we want to make it as easy and straightforward as possible. There are several legal services you can arrange yourself without the support of a solicitor and if we feel that this is more appropriate for you, then we will say so. However, we know from experience that some legal matters are best dealt with in partnership with an expert. We have a team of lawyers with a broad range of experience and specialist knowledge who are here to offer advice and support, tailored to your individual needs.
People are usually looking for legal advice at key moments in life such as buying a property, ending a relationship or planning for the future, and that is why it is so important to work with someone you trust to achieve the best possible outcome.
- Can you give me an upfront quote?
We deal with many clients on a range of legal matters so we know from experience that each client has a different set of circumstances. Costs vary due to the level of complexity of the matter. We strive to be transparent about our costs and will always discuss costs with you at our initial meeting.
- Why do you charge for the first appointment?
From years of experience we know that half an hour is not sufficient to offer substantial advice.
We are always happy to have a conversation on the phone or by email to establish how we can help you and give you an accurate indication of the costs involved. For some of our services we offer an initial consultation for a fixed fee. This arrangement may not be suitable in all cases, but we will confirm this when you make your first appointment.
