Do you think you’ve been charged too much?
We have been assisting parties challenge their solicitors’ fees since 2005.
The vast majority of solicitors provide a value for money service assisting individuals and organisations in times of legal need.
However, on occasion, you might feel that the fees you have been charged exceed what you consider it is reasonable to pay.
In some cases, you might find yourself being sued for unpaid fees.
Whether you have paid your solicitors in full, or not, you have a number of statutory and common law rights available to you, including the ability to request further detail, raise formal objections and to have your solicitors’ bill assessed by the court.
