Funding your case or matter

The ethos of Wilkins Solicitors is to try to serve all members of the community whatever their financial situation. 

We offer several promotions including free and fixed fee advice sessions for £65 plus vat, a range of funding options for Family work (see below), fixed fees for Wills and Powers of Attorney and highly competitive fees for Probate and Conveyancing work.

Family Work

For family work we offer a Consultancy Service ("pay as you go") for those who want it to try to keep down the cost. The prices for a straight forward divorce start at £275 plus vat. We also offer special reduced rates for private disputes concerning children.

There are severe restrictions on what work is available on legal aid so we will not be able to offer it to you unless there has been domestic violence of your children have been taken into care. If you think that one of these circumstances arise, you can use the Legal Aid Calculator to see if you are eligible financially for Legal Aid, but please be aware that this does not guarantee that you will be funded by Legal Aid as it only checks your financial circumstances and only acts as a guide. Your case will also have to qualify on the merits and in most cases quite simply it will not qualify. We will not be able to offer you legal aid in any other areas of work.

Personal Injury Work

In Personal Injury matters we offer "no win no fee" agreements and can sometimes also assist through legal expenses insurance which you may even have without knowing it. So you should never be concerned about the cost of seeing your solicitor when seeking advice about a Personal Injury case.

Small Civil Claims

The small claims limit is now £10,000 so you may not think that it is worth instructing us in relation to such claims. However we can offer you options where we can assist you with stages of the small claims process for fixed amounts. Ask us about this at one of our fixed fee advice sessions.

Probate and Conveyancing Work and other work generally.

In other cases we will either give you a fixed estimate (for example in relation to wills or residential conveyancing) or will provide you with a budget for your legal costs not to be exceeded without your agreement.   

Please speak to the lawyer assigned to you when you come to your first meeting and check our promotions page for specific offers.  We will ensure that we discuss all your options with you.
