Fixed Fee Criminal Defence Solicitors

Most criminal defence law firms charge legal fees according to the time they spend on your case.

We believe fixed fees provide greater certainty in terms of cost, so you can make informed decisions and provide complete transparency.

Our fixed fee arrangement works exactly like a quote. You and your Solicitor discuss the matter and develop a plan for how to handle it. You get a fixed fee proposal that sets out the work to be done and how the fee is to be paid. Once we agree what is included, you sign the contract and our Criminal Lawyers start work.

Criminal Defence Solicitor fees are charged in stages rather than on the time involved. In some complex cases where it's difficult to identify an accurate fixed fee, we may seek to agree fees outside of our usual fixed fee process.

An expert Criminal Law Solicitor will provide an initial assessment of your case for a fixed price then advise you on your options and possible defences.

Our fixed fee criminal defence services are for people who do not qualify for Legal Aid or who prefer not to rely on Legal Aid and expect the very best quality service from a team of highly experienced Criminal Defence Lawyers.
