Costs and working with us

When you first contact our family team, we will discuss your situation by email or telephone to explore how we can help you.

The next step is to arrange a meeting. This can be face-to-face, or by telephone or Skype. 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 will enable us to advise you on future costs, timescales and the best way to move your case forward.

We will follow up the session with written advice to you.

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.

There are many ways that we can help you and the following cost options will be considered and agreed with you where possible:

Fixed costs

Full service representation

Pay as you go/additional advice as things progress

Assistance at Court packages to help support you if you choose to represent yourself in court

Assistance at mediation package to help support your process at mediation

Legal drafting of agreements reached at a fixed cost

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.

Gemma Iceton has achieved something that at one point I never could have imagined. The case was very complex and the accusations were nothing short of horrific and although there was no substance to them. I was in a truly terrible place. Gemma was calm, very knowledgeable, as reassuring as she could be and very professional. And she got the right result - she reassured my faith in the family courts along with Aileen the Cafcass case worker.
