"Dean's expert advice was invaluable when we had to (successfully) defend a vexatious claim. He has pitched his service perfectly and is extremely good value. We would highly recommend Small Claims Assistance." Andrew Fraser, (Fraser Design Associates Ltd)

Inexpensive Legal Advice and  Assistance.


Our Services

I provide assistance to small businesses and consumers with claims of less than £10,000 ("Small Claims"). I charge LOW FIXED FEES, with no commission. I am frequently asked for help by clients who are already involved in litigation, either as a claimant or as a defendant, and who find themselves out of their depth. I can help you whatever stage your case has reached. As solicitors typically charge by the hour and cannot recover their legal costs in Small Claims cases, it is uneconomical for most solicitors to take on your case.

I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives, with over 25 years' experience of Court work. Because I do not directly represent you in your case, but offer advice and assistance with document drafting only, I am able to offer this service at much lower prices than a solicitor's practice. The costs that you pay may not be recoverable from your opponent, even if you win, however Court fees ARE recoverable from your opponent if you win.
