Claiming your legal costs back
We like to win.
Winning is good because it makes our client’s happy and it means that the prosecution have to pay your legal costs!
When we win a case we always apply to the court for a Defence Costs Order. This is the court order that allows you to recover your costs (that includes your own out of pocket expenses, legal fees and expert fees) from the prosecution. There are some conditions to Defence Costs Orders, which is another good reason to instruct a solicitor who understands how they work.
We do not charge for initial telephone advice. We are pleased to discuss your case with you and outline the options available to you before you decide to instruct us.
