Costs


One of the most important factors in family provision claims are the financial needs of the claimant. It is not surprising that many claimants have significant financial needs and are unable to afford legal representation. That is why Armstrong Legal offer to act on a “No Win No Fee” basis in some cases.

A “No Win No Fee” agreement means that Armstrong Legal act for you in making a family provision claim and you are not required to pay any fees upfront. Our fees are only payable if an agreement is reached between the parties or if there is a Court order. Your fees will be paid out of the estate, not by you.

Armstrong Legal specialise in family provision claims and we use our experience to expertly assess the merit of a claim. We offer “No Win No Fee” agreements because we are confident that your claim will be successful and we are willing to share the risks with you.

If you believe that you may have a claim on an estate but cannot afford legal fees, please give us a call and we will assess your claim for free.

Pay at end agreements

At Armstrong Legal we recognise that some clients may not be able to afford to pay their legal fees upfront. That is why in some cases, where a client is entitled to a share of an estate, we are prepared to wait until the end of the matter before our fees are paid.

That means that we will act for you, regardless of the type of estate litigation, without being paid until the matter has been resolved.

This allows you to protect your interest and afford the costs of litigation without having to pay fees upfront. For some clients this is the only way that they can afford legal representation.

If you are the beneficiary of an estate and you require legal representation please contact us and ask about our pay-at-end agreements.
