Phone 01782 627589 for free initial advice
During our phone conversation, we can outline your options to you and give you an indication of any costs involved if you decide to come and see us. We shall explain what documentation you should bring with you to make the most of our meeting. In particular, we have to ensure that we take copies of documents confirming your identity and address before the meeting begins.
We aim during our first meeting to give you as much time as necessary for us to answer all of your questions and help you decide upon your next steps for resolving the situation. Usually this means that a first meeting lasts about an hour.
If you want to then try to deal with matters without my help, I can point you in the right direction for the right forms, documents and procedures and advise as to the various actions you can take. If you decide that you do want me to represent you, we can discuss whether you wish me to deal with every aspect of your case or whether you wish to instruct me to deal with only certain parts of your case, with you doing some of the work yourself. For example, some clients decide that they want me to deal only with the court hearings and draft all of the paperwork themselves whilst other clients prefer the opposite. Together we can tailor the service I provide to your particular circumstances, taking into account the costs that would be involved.
If you instruct us to draft your Will or Lasting Powers of Attorney, we generally have two meetings in total, the first to discuss your wishes and take all necessary information from you and the second to sign the documents.
After our meeting, we will confirm our advice to you in writing. Our letter will set out the action that you and we would take to progress your case and, where appropriate, enclose the necessary forms for the next step.
