Are you after telephone advice?

Our solicitors are able to help you. Telephone advice is a great option for quick and easy advice. We understand that telephone advice isn’t always the best option though, sometimes documents need to be signed, or you may need to speak to someone face to face due to personal reasons. Our administration team will be able to advise what the best course of action is for your situation.

Step 1:

Have you got a legal problem? Give us a call, we may be able to help. Our administration team will be able to discuss your options, and arrange telephone advice with one of our solicitors for you.

Step 2:

Before we can discuss your legal matter, we have to complete a client intake. In our intake, we ask a series of questions so that the relevant Solicitor knows your issue and how to help.

Step 3:

Our solicitors will give you a call back, as soon as they are able to.
