Here I set out indicative and fixed fees for Direct Access Services For both Personal Clients and Business Clients.
I do not charge for an initial 20 minutes Skype, Zoom or telephone consultation to let me decide if your case is suitable for direct access. During this consultation it will only be a fact finding exercise, I will not be giving you any legal advice. If you want a face to face consultation I will charge £500 for up to 1 hour and if you then instruct me on the case I will credit £250 towards the next invoice.
Other than separate fees on my website for simply appearing at a hearing I charge a minimum of £500 to review documents, draft a written advice, have a 1 hour conference, drafting a statement for use in proceedings, drafting pleadings, or drafting particulars of claim.
Any quote given to you for legal services will assume that you will provide me with all necessary information to enable me to deliver the agreed scope of work within the agreed time-frame. I may have to amend my fee if the scope of work or time-frame changes for reasons beyond my control, alternatively if you simply fail to provide information required to enable me to proceed with your case I will entitled to discontinue providing the service and in such circumstance you will not be entitled to any refund on fees which you have already paid.
If you have a quote from a firm of solicitors, please email the quote to: firstname.lastname@example.org and ask if I can take on the work, if I can I will beat the quote by 35% – NO QUESTIONS ASKED
If you have been recommended to John Brown through a previous client, I will discount my fees by 10%.
