Should The Hourly Rate Affect Your Choice Of Solicitor?
Solicitors’ services are usually comparatively expensive and as such you should give your choice as much thought as you would to purchasing an expensive item, so do some research and make an informed decision.
The hourly rate your lawyer will charge should not be the only deciding factor on who you instruct. One of the reasons more experienced lawyers can charge more, is their greater experience often means they will achieve a better result, having spent less time getting it. Overall the legal charges may therefore be lower.
