Legal Costs/What will it Cost?

 

There are a number of ways in which your claim can be funded. However, the important point to remember is that our initial advice is completely free of charge, so the best way to proceed is to call us now on 0800 989 0090 or complete our Free Online Enquiry form, and we can explain your options to you.

 

How much will my legal bill be?

We most certainly want to keep costs down to a minimum, and more often than not, a sensible financial compromise can be met, no matter how bitter the initial conflict is.

 

What if I do not have any money, who pays my legal costs?

We have acted for clients who are struggling financially, and are at a loss as to where to turn. We have NEVER turned anyone away due to their inability to pay. We are more than happy to settle our fees with you at the conclusion of the case.

We would expect to recover your legal fees from the estate we are claiming against.

 

Conditional Fee Agreement – CFA (commonly known as a No-Win No-Fee arrangement)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS INTRODUCED SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THESE TYPES OF AGREEMENTS SINCE APRIL 1st 2013, AND WE CAN EXPLAIN IN SIMPLE TERMS AS TO WHAT THEY ARE, AND HOW THEY EFFECT YOU.

For claims whereby HH Legal are instructed to defend a Will, what exactly is defined as a win?  In these cases, a win will be preserving an interest in the estate and or defeating the claim against you, in part or full.

HH Legal have taken on claims that have been rejected by a number of law firms, and we have provided clients with No-Win No-Fee Agreements.

HH Legal offers a No-Win No-Fee service for defending a Will. You will find our agreements easy to read. If we are unsuccessful in defending your claim, then you will not have to pay our legal fees. We also ensure that any Barristers we use in furthering your claim are also fighting for you on a No-Win No-Fee basis.

We believe that this type of funding benefits clients who want to ensure that they are not at risk of having to pay costs in defending the Will.

This type of funding arrangement would involve you signing an agreement whereby an hourly rate is agreed with us. If you were to lose your case, you would not be responsible for our legal fees, but you would be responsible for paying your opponents costs, and disbursements, which will typically be court fees. We guarantee that you will be protected from such an event by making certain an insurance policy is in place to safeguard you.

 

Private Fee Paying

This type of funding is where you agree an hourly rate with us, and effectively pay as you go. If you are successful, you should be able to reclaim the fees you paid us from your opponent.

 

Legal Aid

We do not offer legal aid services.

If you require further explanation of these fees, please contact HH Legal for a free no obligation discussion to see what funding mechanism suits you.
