Fees

Why have anyone else when you can have a Barrister from the start?

Fee Terms & Conditions

We can conduct the work either on an hourly rate or a fixed fee, the choice is yours, but people tend to opt for the fixed fee, and we can accommodate on either basis without any hidden charges. There may be additional costs, but those costs will relate to third parties, but not our costs. 

It is common for fees to be broken down to suggest that the fee is lower than what they actually are ie appeal to the first tier is sometimes charged as lodging grounds, followed by a fee for preparation and then a fee for advocacy, we simply charge one fee so the cost is clear.

Fees for appointments booked online will be subject a booking fee which will be charged prior to the appointment being booked. It is important for you to ensure that you have the funds in your account at the point of booking taking place.

Any quotes that we provide on our costs will assume that you have provided us with the necessary information so that we may ensure that the agreed work can be done within any agreed time frame. We may charge further fees if the timeframe changes or there is material which is being presented, that was not before us at the time of agreeing the fee, or the scope of work or timeframe changes for reasons beyond our control.

Fees can be paid in advance or where the circumstances allow it by way of an instalment plan. The process paying our professional fees is straightforward as well and can be done through our online payment portal where you can use PayPal. We also accept payments by way of CHAPs, BACS, PayPal, Apple Pay, how you wish to pay will be a matter for you.
