Legal 500 UK -Top-Tier-Rirm-2023

“As a firm they have a real team spirit, always sharing knowledge and experience with each other, to the benefit of their clients. They have a superbly dynamic and diverse team of lawyers in the team.” Legal 500, 2023

Hodge Jones & Allen_Chambers 2023_png“There’s no question that they’re among the best in the country. The strength and depth of their expertise is second to none.” Chambers UK, 2023

What are the costs involved?

Our Criminal Defence team offer an unparalleled level of service and full transparency of the costs involved. Each case is unique, so firstly we will get to know you and your individual circumstances during our free initial assessment of your case. We will then be able to provide further advice on the costs involved and whether these will be charged on a fixed fee basis, or using our lawyers’ hourly rates.

Fixed Fees

Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may be able to advise or represent you for a fixed fee. Fixed fees are more common when you need representation at a single court hearing.

Hourly Rates

In some cases, we will charge based on the amount of work involved. Where this is the case, you will be charged the hourly rate of your lawyer, which varies depending on their seniority.

Our leading criminal defence solicitors are widely acknowledged as some of the country’s top lawyers by independent legal directories, Chambers UK and Legal 500, regularly acting in numerous high-profile cases.

“I just wanted to say thank you so very much for all you did for my daughter. I was extremely pleased, and hugely relieved, that you were acting for her, knowing your reputation … many many thanks.”
