Family Law

Costs & Working With Us

We are dedicated to our clients

When you first contact our family law team, we offer a free initial consultation by telephone or email where we will discuss your situation in confidence to explore how we can help you.

The next step is to arrange a meeting. This can be face-to-face or by telephone. Browell Smith & Co Solicitors has offices in Newcastle, Cramlington, Ashington and Sunderland. We will send you our terms of business setting out clearly our charges in writing before we meet you.

We offer an initial fixed-cost legal advice session to enable you to obtain quality legal advice tailored to your situation. This session lasts approximately an hour and will enable us to advise you on the best way to move your case forward together with future costs, and timescales.

Included within the initial fixed cost legal advice session we will write to you with a detailed letter of advice and guidance.

We are dedicated to our clients and feel that it is essential that we are up front and honest about our costs. We pride ourselves on being transparent with no hidden charges.

Help with costs

We additionally work with litigation funding organisations who provide finance to enable you to fund a court case. We will work through the application process and explain the terms on which a loan may be offered.

You may also be able to seek a Legal Services Order from the court to secure your legal fees to be met from the other party. We will discuss with you whether this would be an appropriate course of action for you.
