Do you feel you have been overcharged by your solicitors? Or have they refused to continue acting until you pay them?




We can advise whether the amount is too high and help you challenge the bill if we think you have been overcharged. You may find yourself being sued for unpaid fees and we can help resolve the situation and negotiate a reasonable settlement. In certain circumstances, your solicitors won’t be able to charge you at all if they haven’t finished the job.

I have used the team at Marsons for a number of contentious and non-contentious matters and I am delighted with the level of pragmatic, timely and cost effective advice that they have provided me with each time.
