Although we started out as a legal aid firm, we do an increasingly significant amount of non-legal aid and private work, mainly for individuals but also for businesses (in particular care service providers).
Free initial telephone consultation
One hour diagnostic (face to face or on Skype) interviews from £100 plus VAT
Hourly rates from between £75 and £170 an hour plus VAT based on a sliding scale.
We believe that we are fairly unique insofar as we will try and price discriminate on the basis of our private client’s financial circumstances.
While we don’t want to get bogged down in assessments we may ask you for evidence (i.e. recent bank statements).
We offer three hourly rate bands as follows
Don't qualify for legal aid but household income less than 25K pa (and savings of less than 20K) - £75 (subject to capacity)
Household income between 25K and 45K pa (and savings of less than 30K) - £85 - £100 ph
Household income over 45K - £125 - £170 ph
We also offer fee caps (a cap on the total amount we will charge for a specific item of work) and staged payments (in other words paying a set amount each month).
We offer the following fixed fees
Lasting power of Attorney (Finance) - £400
Lasting Power of Attorney (Welfare) - £500
(Both Finance and Welfare LPAs - £750)
Deputyship Application - £1, 500
Advance Decision - £350
Please note all the above figures are plus VAT and in the case of LPAs and Deputyships an OPG fee.
