At Wilford Smith we always offer a friendly and down-to-earth service and our team of dedicated professionals always work to ensure that the client always understands what is happening in the case and is happy with the progress is being made, whether this be a simple house purchase or a complicated court case
We recognise that when someone consults a solicitor (whether through choice or need) one of the greatest worries is how much it will cost.
Here at Wilford Smith we try to remove these worries in a number of ways
Firstly, we believe that we offer extremely competitive rates locally and even more so when compared to the prices charged by firms in the larger cities.
Secondly, we always aim to provide a fixed quote for the work to be done. In Conveyancing and Wills we almost always give a fixed quote, in probate work we would give a fixed quote for a grant to be obtained, with an agreed hourly rate thereafter.
In relation to court cases we will either provide a fixed quote at the start of the case or provide an hourly charging rate and give regular updates throughout the case so that you know exactly where you stand
In criminal defence work legal aid is often available and a common misconception is that you cannot get legal aid if you are working. Here at Wilford Smith we take a positive attitude towards legal aid and we will always apply for legal aid where appropriate helping with the application and submitting it on your behalf.
