Initial Consultation & Legal Advice.

An initial consultation is aimed at discussing your issues freely and aimed at giving you some legal advice to assist in making decisions about your legal situation, discussing what options may be available to you, and how you might proceed.

Our initial consultations are not free and will be charged to you in line with our standard charges.

For most initial consultation, we would expect to need to review a summary of your situation and review any applicable documents.  Once we have reviewed those, we can then have your first consultation, meeting, or discussion.

1. Get your information and documents to us.

Use our online booking portal to provide information on your matter, upload any documents you would like us to consider, and choose a preferred consultation time and method.

You will get more out of our initial consultation if you provide as much detail as possible prior to our meeting.

This will save us having to ask lots of questions during the consultation, and will help us focus immediately on providing advice on how we consider it best to deal with your matter and move forward.

The more information you can provide the deeper we can look into your situation and ensure any advice given is relevant and bespoke to you personally and your legal issues.

We will arrange an appointment which might take 30 to 60 minutes. That can be in person, by phone or video conference.

You should use the opportunity to ask questions of us. Ensure that you are comfortable with us and our ability to deal with your legal work.

Trusting your lawyer is fundamental to getting legal advice.

If possible, we will give you an idea of the legal costs involved in dealing with your matter through our firm, or provide a fixed legal fee for our work.

If needed, we'll provide a written confirmation of our advice, our fees and details of how to engage us further.
