Private Legal Work

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).


We offer


Free initial telephone consultation
One hour diagnostic (in person or by Zoom/Teams) interviews from £100 plus VAT
Hourly rates from between £100 and £275 an hour plus VAT charged by grade of fee earners


Paralegal: £100 - £120 ph 

Trainee Solicitor: £125 - £140 ph 

Solicitors of less than 4 years’ experience: £145- £175 ph 

Solicitors of over 4 years’ experience: £180 - £275 ph 


These are guideline hourly rates, we will always try to be flexible.  


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) - £650 *

Lasting Power of Attorney (Welfare) - £750 *

(Both Finance and Welfare LPA - £1,250 *)

Deputyship Application - £1, 950 *


*Please note all the above figures are plus VAT and in the case of LPAs and Deputyships an OPG fee.


*This fixed fee covers all work up to and including the filing of the initial application with the court. If the application is contested, then further work will be conducted on an hourly rate basis.
