Initial Consultation – Simple Matters
There are many matters where you want basic legal advice, but are concerned as to the costs that this may cause you. We offer a fixed fee for a first initial consultation, on a whole range of legal matters. Please call our reception for details.
In appropriate personal injury/motor vehicle claim matters, we operate on a no-win, no-fee basis. The initial consultation is free. At that time, we can advise you if your matter qualifies for our no-win, no-fee terms. We can provide you with full details as to how your claim will be managed, and the legal costs that you will incur. In most matters, we are able to recover a substantial portion of your legal costs from the defendant.
