HOW MUCH WILL MY INITIAL CONSULTATION COST?
Your first consultation will be free. At the first meeting, we will discuss the important details of your claim. Your responses will help us determine the potential value of the claim and whether you are still within the time frame to start legal proceedings. We will explain your legal rights and give you a preliminary idea of the nature of the proceedings which need to be taken to ensure a fair and equitable settlement. If you decide to retain our firm to pursue your claim, we will also reach an agreement regarding legal costs.
WILL I HAVE TO GO TO COURT?
The vast majority of cases will settle outside of court. However, Nicholson Smith & Partners prepares each and every case as if it were going to trial. Because of our reputation of preparedness for court proceedings, we believe insurance companies are more likely to settle rather than proceed to trial. If, however, we are unable to reach a settlement, we will first give you the option of whether you would like to proceed with your claim, and if so, our legal team will work with you to make it as easy a process as possible.
