Typical Legal Fees

Fixed Fees – Transparent Pricing

We are Fixed Fee Motoring Solicitors.

We ask that our clients pay in advance, and in return, they get a better deal.

On rare occasions, we cannot offer a fixed fee.  If this applies to your case, we will explain why and give you an estimate.

We don’t work for free, but we believe you’ll find our fixed fees are extremely reasonable; Sometimes around half those of other privately funded specialist solicitors. We give our clients real value for money and you’ll see from our reviews that our clients agree.

There will be no compromise in the quality of advice you receive. We achieve our lower fees by reducing our overheads.

We’ve done our best to offer you the best value for money whilst delivering quality legal services.

Below is a list of our typical fees exclusive of VAT.

Certain factors may increase the fees, for example, if the court hearing is more than 30 miles from Nottingham or if the case is especially complex. The fees do not include any third party costs such as expert’s fees. We will advise you at an early stage if these are likely to apply.
