The nature and potential magnitude of the other party’s costs may vary, and this will be explained to you when we take your initial instructions.
The above is a general outline of our costs and we recommend that you call our offices directly so that further information can be obtained from you to give you a more accurate estimate. Every case is unique, and progressions is beyond our immediate control.

With regards to Criminal Defence matters at the Police Station or Court, we are pleased to confirm we currently have a Legal Aid contract in place. This means most of the work carried out is covered under public funding as Legal Aid application which are means tested. Dependant the offence and your income, and subject to the ‘interest of justice test’ they may or may not be covered under the scheme.
In the event that you are unable to get Legal Aid or are advised otherwise, we will be able to offer you a fixed fee engagement to cover our costs (subject to your instructions).
Please note parking penalties and most minor driving offences do not meet interest of justice test and therefore will not be funded under Legal Aid.
Where it is not possible for Legal Aid to fund your case, we ask you to contact our office where a member of our Criminal Defence team can assistant you ascertain the next steps.
With regards to Personal Injury claims we can offer a conditional-fee agreement. This is more commonly called a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement, whereby you would only be required to pay our fees if you ‘win’ your case (‘win’ here means any settlement reached by the other side in your favour). Please call our offices to speak to one of the members of our Personal Injury department for further information.
