How much will it cost?

This depends very much on your matter, but costs should always be agreed before instructing the solicitor and set out in your client care letter. A firm can agree fixed or capped fees or if the matter is going be on-going or over a period of months you will be given hourly rates and an estimate.

Estimates can be varied if things arise that were not originally anticipated or the matter becomes more complicated, but you should be given these revised estimates as soon as possible and must be agreed with you before incurred.
