Fees & Funding
NJL solicitors appreciate many people are reluctant to enlist the services of a solicitor as they are concerned it will be expensive.
To give private paying clients more confidence and assurance we aim to provide fixed fees, where appropriate, for any work undertaken.
We are also prepared to provide services under a daily, fixed or capped basis providing our clients with certainty of costs.
On all personal injury instructions and some employment matters we will offer a Conditional Fee Agreement otherwise known as a “No Win-No Fee” arrangement. This means if we are satisfied there are reasonable prospects of pursuing a successful claim we are willing to work on your behalf without being paid until the conclusion of the case.
If your claim is successful the majority of our costs will be recovered from the losing party. New rules which came into force on the 1st April 2013 mean clients are now responsible for the success fee and any After the Event (ATE) insurance costs incurred. These amounts will be deducted from any damages you ultimately receive.
To avoid any confusion we will clearly explain the costs and charges appropriate at the outset of any claim or legal action.
To assist our clients we are more than happy to travel to their premises and do not usually charge for this service.
Will I need to see a solicitor?
It is not always necessary for you to attend a solicitor’s office as much of the work can be done over the telephone, via the post and if appropriate e-mail.
However if you would prefer to see a solicitor please make us aware of this and we will arrange a mutually convenient appointment.
