About Us

Our Fees

As a specialist family law firm, Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice prides itself on getting you the right advice at the right price.

We don't believe that one size fits all.  We recognise that every client is different, and no two cases are the same. 

We don't believe in "fixed fees" which often turn out not to be fixed - not including all the work you need, or requiring expensive "extras" that should have been included.  Nor do we believe in setting a standard price, so that the quick, easy cases end up funding the complicated matters that take twice as long.  And we don't do marketing gimmicks, like a "free" first half hour just to get you through the door.

Instead, we believe you should only be charged for as long as it takes to get you the best possible result, and not a penny more.

All of our expert solicitors work on a "time spent" basis - so you'll only ever be charged for the time we actually spend working on your case, plus any third party expenses (which you'll always be notified about well in advance).

We try to be totally transparent - we'll send you a statement every month setting out exactly what we've been doing for you.

We'll give you an estimate of your costs at the start, based on the information you give us.  This estimate will be straightforward and easy to understand, and if something happens which means it's going to change - up or down - then we'll inform you straight away.

We'll only ever work at your pace, or as dictated by the court.

We offer competitive rates, and we believe our fees represent excellent value for money.  We aim to give our clients the best possible service available, without cutting corners or relying on hidden costs.

Please note that we do not undertake Legal Aid work.

Funding your case

Going through a divorce or separation can be stressful enough on its own, without having to worry about legal fees.

At Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice, we understand that our role is to help you through a difficult time by giving you the advice and support you need.

We are particularly aware of the problems faced by clients who may be entitled to a large settlement, but are not in a position to get top-quality legal representation in order to achieve the results they deserve.

In the current economic climate, we are seeing more and more people who have faced difficulties trying to obtain loans from a high street provider or from family and friends.

As a specialist family law firm, we can help with this.  In order to better meet our clients' needs, we have used our experience and knowledge to arrange access to specialist litigation funding providers - not high street banks - who understand what you are going through, and who offer financial products designed expressly for the purpose of helping with the cost of family law advice.  We are often able to help arrange finance in such a way that the loan and interest will not have to be paid  until the case is settled.

We are also happy to take payment by credit or debit card.
