How much does a solicitor cost?

Nov 06, 2018

The world of legal systems can seem overwhelming. The best decision is to turn to a professional to help you through this time, whether it is navigating a legal problem or ensuring your legal needs are met.

A solicitor is a person you need for any type of legal service. It simply isn’t a job you can handle on your own. Even if it seems simple, the impact can be long lasting and reach far into all aspects of your life. To avoid dealing with these kinds of consequences, it’s best to leave the legal work to the experts and hire a solicitor. 


This type of professional help does not come freely, but working with the right solicitor will ensure your legal needs are looked after correctly in the first place. This can save you money down the road.

Keep in mind there are several factors that will influence how much you pay for these services. By knowing what goes into the cost for a solicitor’s legal services, you can ensure you are entering into this contract with all the information you need to get the best price with the best professional.   

Type of Solicitor

Sometimes, the type of solicitor you need will be very obvious. If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of an accident, you will want to enlist the help of a solicitor who specialises in accident or injury law. Or perhaps you need legal assistance with a family matter. Whether it’s regarding divorce, custody of children or an adoption agreement, you will want to find someone with experience in family or divorce proceedings.

A corporate solicitor will help out with a variety of topics related to the establishment and maintenance of business. Work-related issues will fall under the purview of employment law.

You’ll want to consider the type of help you need to find the appropriate solicitor. Bankruptcy law and estate planning are other fields that are fairly specific about the type of legal help you receive.

And of course, if you have been accused of a crime or believe one has been committed against you, you will need to employ the services of a criminal or civil solicitor. The type will depend on the charge, whether it is a crime or a civil offence.

Type of Legal Services

You can turn to a solicitor for a wide range of legal services. Their professional knowledge and experience will help you attain the help you need. But you will want to hire someone who has specific knowledge in the area you need.

Often, people turn to a solicitor in times when they need advice. Consultation is one of the key services a solicitor can provide. From helping you make decisions about your business to working out the details of your will, a solicitor makes planning easy. These decisions can have a lot of impact on your future or the future of those around you, so it is key to work with the pros for the best results.

Solicitors can also provide representation and legal aid services. This can be extremely helpful if you are hoping to settle a dispute or claim with or without going to the courts. Their experience can ensure your needs and wants are looked after and you receive an appropriate solution to your legal concerns.

Or perhaps you are buying or selling a home. This is certainly a time where a solicitor’s expertise proves useful as they can ensure the legal documents are prepared correctly, whether it is a loan, title deed or lease. With their legal aid services, you will know that you are being looked after. A solicitor can also provide notary services to witness legally binding documents to attest that all parties have signed off on documents knowingly and willingly. 


Most solicitors charge an hourly rate for their services, but the length of time required will depend on the type of service. Different legal services may take different amounts of time to complete until all parties are satisfied.

This is especially true when dealing with disputes that involve two or more parties. It can take some time in order for everyone to come to an agreement, so expect this to influence the cost. Remember that your cost includes both time spent with your solicitor one to one and times when you meet with the other parties.

Receiving advice from a solicitor may be as simple as one visit or extend into several. It all depends on the complexity of the issue you need help with! This will also apply to instances where you need your solicitor to prepare extensive legal documents related to property, business, or taxes. As this may involve multiple steps, from research to drafting documents to sign off on agreements, this complex process may take some time. 


Be sure to consider the years of experience a solicitor has when making your decision. Work experience is the best way to find someone who is equipped in the field of law. It will help you determine the level of expertise and knowledge they have.

It’s key that you hire the right type of solicitor to suit your legal needs, and this means the one with the right type of experience. Often, a solicitor will list specialisation in certain fields on their Bidvine profile. Understanding their strengths will ensure you have someone who can help you in the best way possible.

Reviews are another excellent way to learn about a solicitor’s experience. From the perspective of another client, you can find out how the process went from start to finish and if they were happy with the results. This information can be key in helping you decide between different solicitors to find the right fit.


For your legal services, you will want to search for a local solicitor. This isn’t just because it will make it easier to visit their offices for meetings around your daily schedule. You also work with a professional who uses the local area cost of living to set their rates. A solicitor working in an area with a higher cost of living such as a city may charge more to offset these higher average costs. The best fit for the price is generally a local service.

Going local also has great advantages when it comes to knowledge. Local solicitor knows the local laws inside and out, making them a great choice for your needs in your area. They may also know how to work with other local solicitors. This can be helpful in the instance your legal needs will involve another party and their own counsel. 


The legal system exists to protect you, but it can feel daunting if you don’t know how to navigate it. Relieve the stress and employ a solicitor to assist you in your legal needs. No matter whether you are writing a will, preparing a lease agreement, or preparing to deal with a civil or criminal case, you will need their expertise.
