Our first one hour consultations, and always will be, FREE of charge.
To ensure that your lawyer is properly engaged and bound by the strictest rules of confidentiality, we require a token payment of £1 to ‘hire’ your lawyer.
Although we would like to talk to you bi-weekly on the phone, that would be neither practical nor productive. Legal matters often take time to resolve and our aim is to keep you updated on all new developments in your case. Whilst this may result in several weeks between our communications with you, this does not mean that no activity or action is taking place on your case. We work relentlessly on your behalf behind-the-scenes to achieve your desired outcome as quickly as possible. By streamlining our process we are then able to keep the cost down.
Usually, and in our company’s case as well, the lawyer on the case gets paid under various fee arrangements. Such as:
On an hourly fee basis, fees are based on an hourly rate for services which were provided by our team and individual lawyers and paralegals. A detailed, itemised bill will be given to you showing all work done on your case.
When counted within the flat fee basis, your legal bill is a fixed sum for agreed upon services. In such an arrangement of fees, no in-detail accounting will be made.
On a contingency fee basis, your legal fees will be based on the amount of recovery and productivity we get for you in the court.
This approach basically means – no recovery, no fee. You may have the option of choosing this plan in lieu of hourly charges. Not all cases qualify for the contingency basis; we will tell you if yours does.
Other potential fees:
A pre-payment type of legal fee is usually required in order to begin to process your matter and you will be kept advised as to how that pre-payment is being used. We’ll always keep you up with detailed bills and payments made on your case’s behalf.
Certain cases may have a minimum fee. This means that no hourly accounting will be made unless excess time is expended.
