We offer a first 30 minutes Free Assessment Interview for most contentious matters. This interview is designed primarily to assess if we can be of assistance and to give some indication of the cost of any agreed procedure thereafter. You will appreciate that in the time available we cannot give an in-depth analysis or detailed legal advice other than in the most straight-forward cases.
The free assessment part of the interview will last up to a maximum 30 minutes after which if you wish to continue you will appreciate that we will charge for any additional time spent at our current charging rates (full details available upon request). Subsequent correspondence or further attendances are not included in the free interview and will be chargeable.
Many people now have some legal expenses insurance although it is always necessary to secure approval of the insurers before proceeding. We can assist by arranging funding on a monthly basis by standing order. Main credit cards are also accepted
The FAI is not intended to provide a second opinion on the advice given by other solicitors.
