Small Claims Service (Personal or business)

We understand that If you have a claim which is of relatively low value, you will not wish to incur substantial legal fees and may wish to conduct the claim yourself through the court small claims process. If you require assistance with such claims, we can offer a fixed fee service which can either just involve representation at the hearing or may Involve representation from start to finish. Alternatively, we can also provide assistance on an hourly charge basis.

Small claims can often pose a dilemma for litigants. On the one hand, the cost of instructing counsel can be disproportionate to the value of the claim. On the other, the law and the courts can be confusing and overwhelming to deal with alone. We intend for our service to make a real difference for people who would otherwise have to face what can be a confusing justice system alone.

Even for businesses and solicitors’ firms, small claims can mean unnecessary expense or wasted time. Our competitively priced, client-centred, and specialist service aims to assist and give appropriate advice in regard to your individual case.
