Debridge Solicitors - Our Fees & Charges

Legal Aid

Debridge Solicitors are able to provide publicly funded legal services for criminal law matters.

We will advise you on whether public funding is available in your case. This will depend upon the allegations faced by you and your personal circumstances. If appropriate, we will assist you in making an application for a representation order to cover the costs of the work that we carry out on your behalf.

For other legal services, we will only accept instructions on a private basis. If however it is a matter for which you may be able to get public funding, we will advise you of this and refer you to other solicitors who may be able to take on your case on this basis.

Private Funding

If public funding is not available to you, we offer a fixed fee initial consultation for 50 plus VAT. During the course of the consultation, we will identify your issues and whether it is a matter that we are able to assist you with. We will also provide an estimate of the likely costs involved.

  • For straightforward matters we will often be able to deal with your case on a fixed fee basis.
  • For more involved matters, our fees will be calculated based on the amount of time that we spend on your case.

In all instances, we will inform you if the estimate changes as your case progresses.

Our aim is to be open and transparent with you at all times.

Payment Terms

We would normally expect a payment on account of our costs at the outset of your case. If we have agreed a fixed fee for your matter, then we would normally expect that fee to be paid prior to your final hearing date.
