Competitive and flexible fee options


Being involved in criminal proceedings can be a challenging experience. This is why we at Wheldon Law believe that funding for criminal law cases should not add another burden to those who are already in such a situation. Our fees are highly competitive. We also provide a range of options to ensure that you will receive the legal services you require, no matter your needs and budget.

When you call our offices, one of our staff will take some brief details about you and your case. Then, one of our solicitors will get in touch with you to provide you with straightforward preliminary advice. This service is free of charge. However, please keep in mind that calls are only limited to five (5) minutes due to the significant volume of enquiries we receive daily.

After the initial call, you may wish to book one of our fixed-fee telephone conferences. These consultations can last for up to one hour for a fixed-fee of £325.00 plus VAT*. During the phone conference, we can discuss your case and offer you the guidance you need regarding critical issues, such as your legal position, the options available, your prospects of success, and the potential legal expenses. Afterwards, we will offer you a detailed letter of advice and the estimated costs of our services.

Our hourly rates are as follows:
Senior solicitor £275.00 plus VAT*
Solicitor £250.00 plus VAT*
Senior paralegal £200.00 plus VAT*
Paralegal £175.00 plus VAT*

We will provide you with an estimate of the costs involved and ask you to provide us with funds on account of our fees. These fees will be placed in our client account and you will be invoiced as work progresses.

We often represent clients on a fixed-fee basis. The fee is calculated on the basis of the amount of work we believe will be required in a case. This option provides more peace of mind for clients who are concerned about escalating costs however, we do reserve the right to re-visit any fixed-fee arrangement if it transpires that the case involves significantly more work than was envisaged.

Our expert criminal defence team have decades of experience and are always here to help you. No matter your needs or circumstances, you can count on us to provide you with the legal assistance you require. Call us on 01442 242999 or email us at
