How much will it cost?

An explanation of the way in which costs are charged will be supplied to each client and estimates will be provided whenever possible as to the likely total cost. The costs charged will typically increase in line with the length of time required to complete a matter. There are fixed fees for simple Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney.

How the service works

We will always endeavour to meet the client and take full instructions to ensure that all needs of that client are known. The department contains several fee earners, one of whom will have day to day control of the client's file. Overall responsibility for each file will rest with the Partner in the department.
