The fees will be decided on an individual case by case basis dependant on the number of hearings and complexities of the case. The above estimates do NOT include additional disbursements, travel costs, experts fees or barristers fees. All fees will attract VAT at 20%.
We will quote a fixed fee once we have spoken to you and assessed the circumstances of the case. The fee will include all the costs included in your case from the initial call to us, assessing your case, considering the evidence, fully preparing your case and mitigating in the event of a guilty plea or advocacy at trial.
What’s not included?
There may be extra costs called disbursements that are required such as forensic analysis or expert report. This will depend on the case and we will always discuss the costs with you in advance and arrange for instruction of that expert.
How the case proceeds will depend on your plea. If however, you enter a guilty plea we will meet with you, explain the court procedure, agree on the representations to be made before dealing with the court procedure. We will report to you and answer any questions after the hearing and advise on appeal if necessary. In the event of a not guilty plea, we will take you through the evidence, deal with the initial hearing before meeting with you to take more detailed instructions in the preparation for trial.
How long will it take?
Each case is different but most cases dealt with in the magistrates' court will take between 3-6months from not guilty plea up to the trial. A straight forward guilty plea with no further legal argument will usually resolve on the day that the plea is entered.
Who will be dealing with your case?
All cases are handled by Trystan Roberts and Karen Templeton.
