A bit more information to help you
How much will my case cost?
Like anything, there is a cost associated with getting the best quality law services. However, First4Lawyers offers a range of charging structures depending on the type of legal help required.
Most accident, personal injury and medical negligence claims will be dealt with on a No Win No Fee basis. All other personal, business, family and employment law is done on a private paying basis using the First4Lawyers price guarantee.
Is there a fee when I first seek advice?
When you get in contact, either by calling us or requesting a callback at the top of the screen, we will ensure you speak to one of our legally qualified assistants for free. They will pinpoint your legal issue and review precisely how we can help and what you need to get the resolution you want. There is no initial charge, no obligation and no risk involved.
Will my solicitor be local to me?
We believe in matching to expertise as opposed to post code, and whilst we try and find you the right solicitor in the right location we recognise this isn’t always possible.
Using First4lawyers you’ll be connected with the right specialist for your case, and with the help of modern technology and home visits we are confident you will get the right balance of service and convenience wherever you are.
