We recognise that taking legal advice can be both a daunting and an expensive process. In order to make it easier for you, Barrett & Co offers a Fixed Fee meeting or telephone conference for £95.00 (including VAT) in Employment, Dispute Resolution, Family, Bankruptcy & Insolvency, Contentious Probate, and other areas.
You can contact us by email, telephone or in person and if the relevant person is available, you can make an appointment immediately.
In order to take full advantage of these initial Fixed Fee meetings by maximising the advice you receive in a relatively short time, we suggest you follow these guidelines:
If you want to discuss employment matters, then it is usually sensible to try and bring a copy of your contract of employment as well as any emails and correspondence relating to the dispute or potential dispute you have with your employer.
For all other matters, it is generally sensible to bring as much documentation as you can, even if the solicitor you are meeting does not have the opportunity to read all your documentation at the meeting, it is still very useful for us to know what documentation you have when advising you in such a short space of time.
Our experience is that most clients find the £95.00 Fixed Fee one hour initial meeting extremely useful and cost effective. Typically, you will either receive enough advice to be able to deal with the matter yourself and if appropriate, we will freely give details of websites where you can obtain further information, or we will give you a clear idea of the further cost involved if you were to instruct us.
The Fixed Fee meeting also gives you the opportunity to meet the relevant solicitor and decide whether you will “gel” with them. This is often a very important and underestimated factor in the decision making process which can be stressful and expensive if not handled correctly. Your only commitment following a Fixed Fee meeting is to pay us £95.00. You can then consider our advice and, in your own time, decide whether you wish to instruct us further.
