Stowe Family Law Solicitors Costs
Quality advice is not as expensive as you might think. We have a national reputation as specialist family lawyers, and with that experience we can give you a clear indication of what your case should cost from the outset. Our clients are always kept fully up-to-date with costs.
You should not allow worry about potential costs to deter you from obtaining professional advice, even if you live overseas, because at Stowe Family Law we take our client care very seriously and will always advise you of all the available options for funding your case.
At Stowe Family Law, clients prize our frank and transparent approach to fees. It is an approach that has been honed and adapted to clients’ needs and feedback ever since the firm was founded 30 years ago.
Stowe Family Law is not able to offer legal aid to our clients and we do not generally take on any pro bono work. You can read more on:
From the very first telephone call…
We are able to provide a number of 30 minute appointments across our offices where you will be able to obtain some general advice about your situation and we will also be able to give you an idea of how you should proceed and what the likely costs will be. Alternatively you may wish to have an extended meeting and depending on the issues we may be able to offer you a fixed fee for that appointment. Why not make an appointment for peace of mind by visiting one of our offices? Simply call and arrange an appointment. For further information about our 30 minute appointments see our Family Legal Advice Appointment.
Instructing Stowe Family Law
If you wish to proceed and instruct Stowe Family Law, we will confirm the estimated fees and our solicitors’ charge-out rates in a written retainer letter, which we will ask you to sign and return to us.
If for any reason our original estimate has to be amended, we will notify you and obtain your consent before the further work is undertaken.
Stowe Family Law will send you a bill every month, to prevent costs mounting up and to ensure that you are aware of what your costs are as your case proceeds.
When you receive your monthly bill, you will also receive a breakdown of the costs for that month. Stowe Family Law only charges for time that has been fully verified by our accounts team.
Our policy of manually cross-checking bills ensures accuracy and your bills will be produced in this way at no extra cost to you. On the rare occasion that a discrepancy occurs, it will be corrected immediately.
At any time you may visit our offices and review your client files, to satisfy your own cross-checks. You also have full access to our management team, who will assist you free of charge with any queries.
Morna Bunce, the firm’s Head of Practice Management, is available to assist with queries about costs and other areas of client care, free of charge. So if you have a question or enquiry, please do not hesitate to contact her.
