Discounted Fixed Fee First Interview Scheme
At Garratts we understand the importance of value for money and ensuring that every penny you spend counts.
We also realise that the cost of obtaining legal advice and assistance can be of great concern.
We are therefore pleased to offer our Discounted Fixed Fee First Interview Scheme.
This Scheme is for the first appointment only and for the fixed cost of £150 inclusive of VAT payable in advance of the appointment, gives you up to one hour of one to one time at one of our offices with one of our qualified experts.
We have carefully designed our Scheme to enable you to obtain clear information, valuable explanation and advice, and practical solutions at a clear and transparent price.
We promise there are no hidden costs!
Our Scheme can help you in a cost effective way, if you need or seek:
• legal guidance, or
• a legal perspective on documents you do not understand, or
• you require legal input or have to make difficult decisions with legal implications
Pay As You Go Legal Advice
Our Pay as You Go Consultancy Scheme has been designed to follow on from our Discounted Fixed Fee First Interview Scheme and gives you the opportunity to seek further advice in your case as and when you need it.
This Scheme can be used as often (or as little) as you need to. You can use this Scheme either for a face to face advice session or, alternatively, to enable your legal expert to read through documentation and to provide you with advice thereon.
The time can alternatively be used for us to assist you with completion of any forms or to draft letters/documents (to be sent in your name) on your behalf.
The fixed fee cost for our Pay as You Go Scheme is £180 (inclusive of VAT). The fee is payable in advance of the appointment/consideration of documentation.
Of course, if you need or prefer to do so, you can convert to a full retainer service with us at any stage of proceedings, even after you have used either or both of our Consultancy Schemes.
Acting under a retainer would mean that we will officially act on your behalf, send out letters to your opponent or their solicitors and if necessary go on record as your Solicitors in any Court proceedings.
This may be of particular interest if you feel unable to represent yourself at any Court Hearings either in person or by telephone. An estimate for our retainer services can be provided at any stage of your case, as you require.
Fixed Fee Skype Appointments
Our SKYPE facility can be used for a Discounted Fixed Fee First Interview/Appointment or a Pay As You Go advice session. You may find this to be extremely helpful if you need urgent advice or if you are unable to meet with our representative at one of our offices due to other commitments. Our SKYPE facility is secure at our end, this being protected by our firewalls and other security measures. The interview itself will also be private and confidential here at our offices. Our connection is 100% secure meets any requisite speed measures for SKYPE use. Provided your internet facility is adequately secure and the speed is appropriate for the SKYPE facility, we believe you will find that using SKYPE is as good as being in the same room as our adviser.
Please ask about this facility when contacting our office, if you are interested in using this. We will need your SKYPE address beforehand so that a connection can be established.
In addition, if you are not an existing client, we will need to obtain copies of your identification documents before the interview, in order to comply with the Law Society’s Regulations on this point.
