Our Fees

Fixed Fees for applications, documents & Court hearings

We offer you Fixed Fees for our assistance with applications, statements, bundles and attendance at remote and in-person court hearings.

Reasonable email and telephone support are ‘included’ within the Fixed Fee quoted. We do not put you on a timer and charge for individual calls or emails.

If your case takes longer than expected on the day of your hearing as regularly occurs, our Fixed Fee is still applicable; meaning you are not hit with extra costs for our additional time on the day.

The Fixed Fee quotes ensure you know the total cost at each stage for our assistance, no surprises with additional costs from us.
