Our family law services

If you require a family advisor or parental law expert, look no further than our highly qualified team. We have over 25 years of experience of dealing with Family Law matters – including care work, divorce, separation, financial settlement and child contact – and our dedicated, experienced, well respected and professional team will provide you with outstanding advice and representation. We also have excellent working relationships with barristers and other experts, where required, to get you the best possible result. Our advisors have extensive experience in dealing with both private and public law family matters, so contact us for a robust and reliable legal service.

Legal Aid

Legal Aid is still available in relation to a wide range of family disputes and we are contracted with the Legal Aid Agency to provide some Family Law advice. Where Legal Aid is available we will assess your eligibility and help with the application process. If you are not eligible for Legal Aid we will discuss our private fees with you, which are always competitive.

Let James Murray Solicitors help with your legal requirements. Call 0151 933 3333 or contact us here to arrange an appointment.

Privately funded work

As legal aid has now become very restricted for many matters, we are doing everything we can to assist clients who need representation.

Initial interviews obviously do take up professional time and so we have to charge for this. This will be £150 plus VAT = £180 for that first meeting and this is fixed. It must be paid prior to the appointment.

Fixed fees

For many other pieces of work or court applications we are prepared to consider offering fixed fees. We have a reputation for a fair and transparent fee structure, as well as wanting to ensure that you get value for money towards as successful a resolution as possible.

Hourly Charging Rates

For all other matters you will be given the details of the hourly charging rate for the Fee Earner who is responsible for your file. An estimate of overall costs will be provided at the outset, and which we will review and update for you periodically so that you can maintain control over the costs position as your matter progresses.  For details of the fee structure for the fee earners, please see below:-

Grade A Solicitors with over 8 year post qualification experience including at least 8 years litigation experience.
Grade B Solicitors and Legal Executives with over 4 years post qualification experience including at least 4 years litigation experience.
Grade C Other solicitors, legal executives and fee earners of equivalent experience.
Grade D Trainee solicitors, paralegals and fee earners of equivalent experience.

The respective charge out rates are as follows: –
Grade A – £261.00 per hour
Grade B – £218.00 per hour
Grade C – £178.00 per hour
Grade D – £126.00 per hour

How it works:

  • We will accept payment by cash, cheque, credit or debit card.
  • We encourage monthly instalments to make it all manageable.
  • We will keep you updated throughout the progress of your case.
