Free first appointment for family advice

We have noticed, since the recent announcements about legal aid being severely restricted from 1st April, that many firms are offering what seem to be great deals for advice on divorce and family law issues.

At Fraser Brown we offer a FREE first appointment with one of our highly experienced lawyers regardless of your means and whether or not you qualify financially for legal aid.

Perhaps you’re asking yourself, what’s in it for us- surely there’s a catch? The reason we offer a free initial meeting is that we know how important it is to meet the lawyer who may be advising you about some of the toughest decisions you will ever have to make. We believe that trust is earned, and we know we can offer you a high quality good value service. We are confident that you will wish to use our services, but we will never put you under any pressure to do so and the meeting is completely without obligation.

During that meeting we can assess your case, give you some preliminary advice and see if you qualify for legal aid. Many people who currently qualify unfortunately won’t be eligible after 1stApril. We understand that for many people it will be a major worry: how will they be able to afford the legal advice or representation they need without legal aid?

To this end we are now offering a range of funding options to help fill the gap the withdrawal of legal aid will create.

We offer fixed fee services to rival those offered by competitors such as Cooperative Legal services, but with us you can be sure of face to face advice from a local, well- established and trusted legal specialist, not a national chain.

We offer a deferred payment scheme that can allow you to make interest free, manageable monthly payments to pay for your legal costs. Where there are joint assets involved we can even defer payment to an agreed date when your financial settlement is received.

Whatever your means, we offer quality without compromise, with the same skilful and specialist lawyers.

All of our solicitors are members of Resolution, an organisation for family law specialists committed to resolving cases in a constructive and non- confrontational way.

If you do think you may qualify for legal aid it’s important to contact us immediately so we can help you before the reforms come into force in April.  Even after April we will still be here for you and we can still offer a range of affordable, tailor made solutions for every budget!

So what’s in it for you? You have nothing to lose by booking a consultation, and potentially a great deal to gain from the specialist advice and effective representation we can offer you.
