INTRODUCTION

We are a firm of Solicitors who specialise in undertaking agency advocacy hearings in Family and County Courts across the Midlands area.

Below is an outline of the categories of work we undertake and an overview of the service we provide.

CHILDREN ACT LITIGATION

The following types of Family Litigation hearings are regularly undertaken:

  • Public Law proceedings relating to Care and Adoption brought by Local Authorites including Interim Care Orders, Case Management Hearings, Issues Resolution Hearings and Urgent C2 Applications.
  • Section 8 Hearings in Private Law Proceedings relating to Child Arrangements Orders.
  • First Directions Appointments in Ancillary Relief Hearings
  • Financial Dispute Resolution hearings
  • Attendance with Counsel on Final Ancillary Relief Hearings

Fee Structure:- We undertake Family hearings at standard FAS Public Funding fees for the Family Courts should your client have the benefit of a Public Funding Certificate. Andrew Walters, as an Independent Solicitor Advocate under the Family Advocacy Scheme, will claim payment directly from the Legal Aid Agency once you have allocated the fee on CCMS.

If you are privately retained by your client then our attendances would be charged either at a prior arranged fixed fee or on an hourly rate of £130.00 per hour plus VAT.

CIVIL LITIGATION

The following types of Civil Litigation hearings are regularly undertaken:

  • Mortgage Repossession Hearings
  • Applications to Suspend Warrants of Possession
  • Mortgage Shortfall Claims
  • Bankruptcy and Insolvency Hearings
  • Return of Goods Hearings
  • Applications for Charging Orders
  • Applications for Garnishee and Attachment of Earnings Orders
  • Allocation/Listing Hearings
  • Case Management Conferences
  • Infant Approval Hearings

Fee Structure:- Our fixed agency fee for most standard hearings listed for ten minutes or less is £100.00 plus VAT, inclusive of preparation, travel and waiting. More complex hearings with a lengthier time estimate would be attract a higher fee which we will be glad to negotiate with you. This may be a fixed fee or based on an hourly rate dependant on the nature of the hearing. Should you already have a fixed pricing structure for your hearings, then we will be happy to undertake instructions accordingly.

OUR SERVICE

We aim to provide a complete service to you from the receipt of your instructions to reporting back with the result of the hearing.

It is our practice to telephone you with the result of the hearing immediately after its conclusion. We will e-mail a full report to you before close of business on the day of the hearing wherever possible.

We, wherever possible, will be happy to accept emergency instructions at short notice.

We pride ourselves on being able to provide you with a personal, friendly yet professional service. We have an excellent working relationship with all of our clients which we have maintained over a considerable number of years. We aim to provide a service which you will be happy to continue to use on a regular basis.
