We will discuss funding and fees with you from the start, before you incur any cost.
If Legal Aid is available for your case we will apply without charge to the Legal Aid Agency seeking funding.
If Legal Aid is not available for your case we can offer fixed fees and pay as you go instalments and "No Win No Fee" in suitable cases.
We will always give a clear written indication of our fees and the money we expect to pay out on your behalf during the case at the start and from time to time during the proceedings so you always know so far as is possible the costs you have agreed to incur.

Bringing a claim against an estate can be daunting and whilst you may hope to recover a share or an increased share in an estate, you may not immediately be able to fund the legal costs of litigating the dispute.
Often a small, fixed fee for initial work will give us a better understanding and in many cases once we have established that there are estate assets which should be paid to you we are happy to wait for payment until they are received.
If you are pursuing a "claim" against an estate we are happy to agree pay as you go instalments and in suitable cases, we will offer you a “No Win No Fee" arrangement which means that RMNJ take on the risk of not being paid for our work, rather than you having to pay your own legal costs if your claim is unsuccessful.
We will always give a clear written indication of our fees and the money we expect to pay out on your behalf during the case at the start and from time to time throughout your case, so you always know so far as is possible the costs you have agreed to incur.
Whilst the executors of an estate may expect that their legal costs of dealing with a dispute will be automatically met out of an estate, this is not guaranteed, and we always consider carefully the risks involved in managing disputes to ensure your protection.
