How it works:
Traditionally, legal advice involves a solicitor acting for you and charging a fee for every action taken on your case whether writing a letter, receiving a phone call or preparing a document.

We will keep a note of all our meetings with you and record what was discussed.
If at anytime during your case you would like us to take a specific step, such as prepare a document or represent you at a hearing, we will do this for a fixed fee.
If you would prefer our full representation service, we will accept monthly payments to enable you to budget for payment of your costs.
