Criminal Defence Fixed Fees

How does it work

Our solicitors will let you know the work that needs to be carried out and will agree the cost of these services with you. Where there are extra costs, such as obtaining a medical report, expert reports or any other fees, our experts will inform you of such costs potentially associated with your matter.

Occasionally you may wish for our experts to carry out extra work. For example, you may wish to take the case to a trial when we had quoted for a low-cost guilty plea. In these situations, our expert will be clear about the extra funding that will need to assist with your case.
