Legal Costs, led by you.

James Legal believes that the old-fashioned model of Solicitors' charges does not always sit well with the modern sophisticated legal services customer. That's why we simply asked our clients what they wanted, and then gave them exactly what they wanted.

Our clients wanted clear pricing, fixed Legal Costs, flexible payments and to be in control of the legal spend. That's why we offer:

Free initial Meeting

The initial meeting, chat over a coffee, or whatever you want to call it is free. Let’s meet up and discuss your problem or concerns. Sometimes a chat and guidance is all that is need on other occasions we may need to step in to help you. The meeting gives you the chance take some initial advice and guidance, whilst at the same time getting to know the strong, supportive and personable James Legal team.

Clear Legal Costs information

Our initial meeting with you is usually a free consultation. If you decided you would like us to carry out legal work for you: we will send you the proposal to let you know exactly what work we will carry out and give you a clear estimate of the Legal Costs.

Fixed Fees

The best way to budget and avoid surprise legal bills is to agree in advance a fixed fee for the work being done. In most instances James Legal are able to provide a fixed price for a specific piece of legal work which we will clearly set out in writing for you. For more see fixed fees.

Client controlled budgets

We place financial control directly in your hands. We ensure that our clients don't fall foul of Legal Costs which increase outside their expectation. Accordingly we are keen to set agreed budget limits. This will enable you to set a financial limit in relation to the legal work done and James Legal will work within that budget limit. James Legal will not go beyond the agreed budget limit without first obtaining your approval and a revised budget limit will normally be set were appropriate.

Legal Costs updates

Solicitors have been criticised for advising client about Legal Costs at a late stage or in some cases not at all, this can allow substantial legal bills to be beyond your control.

It's important to us that not only do you know what the costs are likely to be, but also that you are kept up to date on you Legal Costs as your case proceeds. At James Legal Solicitors we will keep you informed of your Legal Costs on a regular basis as your case progresses.

Monthly payments
