At Charles Ferguson Solicitors, we are happy to represent both private paying and legally aided clients in criminal defence cases including all road traffic cases.
Whilst a significant proportion of our clients do qualify for Legal Aid, many of our clients, either due their income levels or their personal/financial circumstances, do not qualify for Legal Aid. We will provide you with a guide from the outset whether your case will qualify for Legal Aid. Certain types of cases including many types of road traffic cases do not qualify for Legal Aid as such our fees are charged on a private paying basis.
At Charles Ferguson Solicitors we operate our fees system on a “Fixed Fee” basis. This means that the total cost of your case will be explained at the outset and it will not change as the case progresses.
Many other law firms operate on a “by the hour” or “time and line” basis, this means that their clients will receive a bill at the end of the case and will not know the true cost of their case until after it is resolved. We have found that our clients greatly appreciate our clear and straightforward fixed fee system.
We believe our fee rates are fair, reasonable and represent true value for money, given the individual, personal attention, time, care and consideration each case and client receives. Ultimately, we wouldn’t expect you to work for nothing and we operate under the same belief.
We are happy to accept payment either by Credit/Debit Card, BACS, Cheque or Cash. We also operate flexible payment solutions/payment plans for our clients.
Please do not hesitate to contact our legal team, either by phone or email, to discuss your individual case and situation regarding legal fees.
