How do I know if my solicitor costs are excessive or reasonable?

Work carried out by solicitors which involves the courts has standard rates applied to it.

Other work that is not court related does not have standard rates applied. Did they provide you with an estimate at the outset, but now you have the final bill the total costs far exceed the initial figure quoted? Perhaps their invoice details work that you think they didn’t actually carry out?

You can ask for a break down of all costs in order to be sure they are reasonable and appropriate and the correct rates, where described, were applied. If you are dissatisfied and looking to dispute the bill from your solicitors or would like to pursue a claim for solicitors negligence please contact us on 0800 783 6191.
