How much will it cost?

Helpful information about fees and charges.

 

Each matter is different and it can be very difficult to confirm how much something will cost but at Winter Solicitors we can offer you a range of options which will allow you to make an informed choice. Below we have supplied details of some of our fixed fee costs but keep an eye out for our special offers and discounts which we promote in the local area on social media.

The fees and charges can also be different depending upon the type of claim and there is always an option to instruct us on an hourly basis whereby each hour is split into 10, 6 minute units for charging purposes.

At Winter Solicitors, we also offer a payment plan for many of our customers, should you be unsure about fees, feel free to call our Miss Ruth Winter who will explain things further and give a personalised quote, if possible. At Winter Solicitors, we do not charge for this initial advice.
