Hourly Rate and Fixed Fees

We want to be totally transparent with our costs.  However, as every case differs in nature and complexity it is difficult to provide a fair price that will cover all cases.  With this in mind we  offer an hourly rate service of between £30 and £60 dependent upon the nature of your case and the qualifications and experience of the person who is providing Legal /McKenzie Friend Services.  We also offer fixed fees as below for some of our services:


We will provide a quote for the Services that you require, so please contact us for a quote. 

*If your case is complex then our fixed fees will incur additional costs, however, we will provide a quote for all work to be undertaken by us and notify you in advance for your agreement of any additional costs over and above our quote. 

Pro Bono Work

We are able to offer a limited amount of our services on a pro-bono (free basis) subject to personal circumstances.  Please contact us for further information or to discuss your case.
