  • Keeping You Informed

    Is it too much to ask that you are kept informed regularly about how your case is progressing?

    We don’t think so. We think it is your right.

  • Moving Cases Quickly

    It’s bad enough that you have to get a solicitor in the first place!

    Our job is to get your problem solved fast! That means we have to do things quickly.

  • Contacting Your Solicitor

    Do you have difficulty contacting your Solicitor?

    If you agree to pay for legal services, the least you can expect is a prompt response from your Solicitor.

  • Value For Money

    We charge based on the value of our work to you.

    Many firms charge based only on the amount of time they spend on your work. In this way, the slower they are, the more they charge!
