Different Types of Legal Funding for You
Of course you will be concerned about the cost of legal services but our guarantee is to offer you excellent customer care, legal advice you can trust and value for money, all combined with our funding options, which are easy to understand.
All legal costs are agreed with you in advance and we keep you fully informed about your costs throughout your case. The first step is to call or email us now and ask for your free estimate of legal costs. However, you may prefer to read more about your options below before you do.
WTB Solicitors LLP offers you the following funding options:
Fixed-price legal advice
If you are not sure whether you need to start a legal case or simply need clear legal advice that you can trust, we have an easy fixed-fee scheme suitable for anyone who is paying their own legal fees.
Try our Fixed Fee Detailed Case Assessment. The assessment lasts for up to one hour either at our office or on the telephone. You must pay in advance either by credit or debit card over the phone or at our office. If you later decide to use WTB Solicitors on the same legal case then we will discount your first invoice.
Our Fixed Fee Detailed Case Assessment is one of our most popular services – our clients want expert legal advice at an affordable fixed price. After the assessment you will benefit from clearly understanding your legal position.
For all publicly funded cases, we hold a specialist quality mark from the Legal Services Commission in family and housing law. Legal aid is not available for all legal cases but if it is available either the whole or part of your legal costs will be paid from public funds.
To assess whether you are eligible please call for a free assessment or follow the link to the Legal Services Commission Eligibility calculator.
Paying your own legal costs
For legal cases where legal aid is not available and we do not offer a fixed fee, our charges are very competitive and are calculated on an hourly rate (depending on the experience of the lawyer undertaking the work). We will agree legal costs in advance for each stage of your case. We will keep you informed about costs throughout your case and if our estimate has to change for any reason then we will let you know straight away.
We will carefully assess your needs and tailor our services to suit your budget. There are a number of easy payment options including credit cards and monthly instalments and we do not make an additional charge for card processing. We can also agree fixed fees for certain types of work.
Legal expenses insurance
Many household and motor insurance policies include cover for legal costs. It may be worth checking your insurance policy before your first appointment to find out if this is an option in your case.
Whichever method you choose for paying your legal costs we will make it as clear and as easy as possible and above all manageable. We are confident that you will benefit from the excellent advice provided by our expert solicitors.
