No. 3PB’s specialist family barristers are to re-use a well-known phrase, “reassuringly expensive”. In family disputes, some lawyers are approached by members of the public in a hoped-for bidding war with other lawyers to try and get the cheapest price. This can and frequently does mean barristers wasting hours of work on unnecessary reviews and preparation of papers. We will not be, nor do we aim to be, the cheapest family lawyers. We therefore do generally charge a fixed-price initial assessment fee as part of the process. This is a standard and discrete part of the engagement within our client letter to assess your dispute and consider your papers – with payment up front of £150 + VAT (or £300 + VAT if a QC is required). Solicitors referring clients to us do not attract this assessment fee.
