Clear Pricing

There’s no escaping the fact that there are costs to be paid whenever people get involved with the law. But we do everything we can to make those costs manageable so that you can try to get your issues resolved without worrying unduly about the expense.

Personal Injury

We make no charge at all for your first half-hour meeting with us, so you can explain everything to a solicitor and see if there’s the possibility of making a claim. We’ll also discuss all the funding options available – including the possibility of a no win-no fee arrangement.

Family Law

We offer a free telephone consultation when we can discuss your case and provide initial advice including as accurate a guide as we can to what your costs might be – and we’re happy to receive payment in stages by direct debit to suit your circumstances.

Business Start-Ups

Starting your own business is exciting – but it can be a stressful and time-consuming affair, especially in the early days, and it’s all too easy to let the legal aspects slip. The structure of your company, dealing with premises, handling employees, all these and more can bring you problems in the future if not properly thought through and implemented.

We can help you to deal with every legal aspect of your new business, leaving you free to develop and grow it. Our initial consultation is free, during which we’ll discuss your requirements and advise on the best way to implement them. We’ll also talk in detail about any costs you may incur so you can budget accurately right from the start.
