Criminal defence Fees:
If Legal Aid funding is not available, you can instruct us on a private basis.
We generally charge a daily Magistrates Court attendance fee of £600 and an additional £1,800 for all cases that proceed to contested hearings, such as trials and Special Reasons hearings. Please note that these fees exclude VAT and disbursements, such as expert witness or barristers’ fees.
These rates apply to all cases in the Magistrates Court. However, the precise amount of work required in your case will depend upon its circumstances. On average, 4 to 8 hours of work will be required where there is an uncontested hearing, whereas contested hearings are likely to involve between 8 – 16 hours of work.
Fees for Crown Court cases are based on an hourly inhouse solicitor attendance and preparation rate of £350 per hour plus VAT.
