Initial Consultations and Engagements with a Lawyer
During an Initial Consultation, which can be done over email or via a phone call (which will last up to 45 minutes), the Lawyer will obtain further information from you regarding your situation in order to provide you with a competitive quote for the legal advice or documents that you require (a “Quote”) or recommend another course of action. Any Quotes will be a fixed price offer (also known as an agreed fee)
Quotes and any work done pursuant to a Quote (an “Engagement”) will not be governed by these Terms but will instead be governed by the separate terms and conditions provided to you by your Lawyer and accepted by you before the Lawyer commences work. You can find a copy of the terms and conditions which cover Engagements with True Wills, which also contains details of the legal advice complaints procedure, here.
