We appreciate that many of you have limited funds.  There is no charge, therefore, for the initial telephone enquiry.  

Prices vary depending on the complexity of the matter and the amount of work required.  Please see the FAQs for more details on the range of prices.

We also offer a review service, providing detailed written comments and suggestions on an appeal statement you intend to submit.

Finally, we offer face-to-face consultations, in person or through Skype, about prospective appeals.  In the consultation, we offer practical guidance on how best to negotiate the appeal process.  This is appropriate in more complex cases. 

At the end of the initial discussion, we will offer a cost estimate.  It is entirely up to you whether you choose to continue using us. 

Recognising that deadlines for appeals can be tight, in 2018 we launched an 'express' service for urgent assistance.

All the prices we quote include time spent on preparation (e.g., reading and research time).  There are no added charges.

In exceptional cases which do not lend themselves to a fixed fee, we may suggest an hourly rate arrangement.
