1. How much will it cost?
We understand that a legal case can be stressful so we aim to offer you a transparent fee structure to ensure there is one less thing for you to worry about.
All legal costs are explained to you and agreed in advance, we keep you fully informed about your costs throughout your case. Information about our legal prices and payment options are explained below. We will let you know who will be responsible for your case and their qualification.
Occasionally, we cannot say how much it will cost to complete your work. This happens in complex cases or in cases where it is not clear at the beginning what legal work will be involved. In these cases we will agree a price as soon as we can. Some clients prefer to pay on an hourly basis others prefer the certainty of a fixed fee.
Our objective is to be transparent in our pricing policy and legal costs and since we are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority you can be sure of the very highest professional standards.
2. 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.
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.
WTB Solicitors LLP offers you the following funding options:
2.1 Legal aid
For all publicly funded cases, we hold a Specialist Quality Mark from the Legal Aid Agency in Family, Housing law, Immigration and Asylum 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.

2.4 Hourly Rates for complex cases
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).
2.5 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.
