In family cases – like most firms of solicitors, we charge based on how much time we spend on your case and the applicable charge rate depends on the seniority of the Solicitor responsible for your case. As your case progresses, we provide you with updating costs information.
When we bill for our work, you will receive a narrative describing the work done, as well as a detailed breakdown setting out how every penny of your bill has been calculated.
The Legal Aid Agency should be able to advise you details of Solicitors who undertake legal aid work, as we do not undertake legal aid work.
In the event that you have suffered domestic violence and require legal aid, please refer to http://www.justice.gov.uk/legal-aid-for-private-family-matters.
