Solicitor’s Fees

Fees vary from law firm to law firm. Some may charge you on hourly rates, fixed fees, or staged payment options. We do not deal with this aspect so if the price quoted by one of our panel members is too high or doesn’t seem competitive, you do not have to go with that law firm. It doesn’t cost you anything to have a conversation with them to see if they are the right fit for you and your circumstances. We do not charge you a fee for introducing you to any of our panel members and the initial telephone consultation with the solicitor’s firm is free of charge.

Legal Assist does not offer legal advice of any kind. Our panel solicitors may be able to offer their services to you however you are under no obligation to utilise their services even after your initial telephone consultation with them. Any solicitors firm we recommend is an independent firm from whom you will receive impartial professional legal advice from. We are paid a recommendation fee for successful introductions however this has no impact on the level of service you would receive with them or the fees that you would be charged by that panel member. You are also free to seek legal advice through a solicitor’s firm or legal advisor of your own choice or pursue this matter yourself for free.

No win No fee

Our panel solicitors can handle your case on a no win, no fee basis which means there’s nothing to pay upfront and nothing to pay if your case is unsuccessful.

If your case is successful, our panel solicitors take between 25%- 50% from your awarded compensation. This varies amongst our panel members and will be dependent on the law firm we recommend you to as well as your claim type.

Full terms & conditions will be included in your solicitor’s agreement so please read this carefully and speak to them if you are unsure of anything before signing. For more information, please visit our No win No fee page.
