We offer a clear, transparent fee charging structure

We offer initial meetings for no charge and there is no time limit on our meeting.

We offer fixed fees for the majority of our work with only disputes and Court of Protection work based upon time spent. When offering fixed fees, we will make sure you know exactly how much it will cost before we undertake any work. We provide realistic estimates for how long we will think it will take when working on an hourly rate and we will keep you updated on a regular basis.

‘We are proud to offer a clear and transparent pricing structure.’
