Magistrates' Court Fees

It is difficult to quantify the cost of your case until we obtain the prosecution papers and determine how long the case will take. In particular, we need to know whether you will plead guilty or not guilty, how many hearings are likely, and if it is a trial how many court sessions the trial will last for. Typically, our fees are as follows

For a Guilty Plea:
For a plea in mitigation – a guilty plea with mitigation put forward and the hearing completed in the same session: £400 plus VAT although this charge may increase if the court is not local;

For a plea in mitigation – a guilty plea with mitigation put forward and the hearing completed later the same day but into a different session: £600 plus VAT although this charge may increase if the court is not local;

For a guilty plea which is then adjourned for Pre-Sentence Reports, meaning you have to come back a different day, £750 plus VAT;

For a Not Guilty Plea:
Listed for a half day trial, £1,000 plus VAT;

Listed for a full day’s trial, £1,400 plus VAT;

For a not guilty plea, listed for more than a day’s trial, our fees will be substantially more, and we will need to evaluate what work exactly needs doing.

In addition to those fees, disbursements such as travel to and from the court will need to be added to the total. If your case involves further applications to be made on your behalf such as a submission of exceptional hardship or special reasons there will be further costs which you will incur.

Crown Court Fees

Crown court cases are determined by a number of additional factors to magistrates matters. This again makes it is difficult to quantify the cost of your case. Prices for all crown court matter will be determined on a case by case basis upon request.
