Area of Business

As a firm we offer legal services to both commercial clients and private individuals. The areas of law in which Solicitors are able to offer legal advice are:

Personal Injury Law, covering accidents at work, in public and on business premises. We also have solicitors within our personal injury legal team who are able to deal with cases involving people who have suffered very serious, life-changing injuries and who might require dedicated care arrangements for the rest of their lives.

Road Traffic Accidents, including claims made by non-fault drivers and passengers in both non-fault and at-fault vehicles. Our road traffic accident solicitors also offer an accident management service to drivers whose car may be out of action after their accident.

Criminal Law, providing advice to people facing allegations of a criminal nature or who have been informed that they are under investigation by the Police. Our criminal law solicitors also represent people accused of motoring offences, such as driving whilst disqualified or dangerous driving.

Family Law, covering divorces and the dissolution of a civil partnership. Our family law solicitors also deal with cases involving threats or actual domestic violence and children law cases.

Private Client Law, covering wills and probate work. In addition, our private client lawyers also offer advice on personal injury trusts, help with drafting a lasting power of attorney and cases involving the recovery of NHS care fees in England and Wales.

Employment law, covering our employment advice services for both employers and employees who might be facing difficulties entering work, in the workplace or when leaving a job. We offer a dedicated Employment Solutions subscription-based service for employers - with access to our employment solicitors for a fixed monthly fee.

Professional negligence law, covering professional negligence legal advice for anyone wishing to make a claim against a professional who has failed to deliver the expected standards of work. Our professional negligence team can also help in cases involving personal injury solicitors who have settled their clients' cases for less than their true value.

Dispute resolution, covering commercial and private dispute resolution. If you're involved in a dispute, our solicitors can offer advice and representation - helping you to reach a resolution.

Right to buy mortgage claims, covering cases of mis-selling affecting people who used exercised the right to buy their council home in recent years.

Fees

As a firm, we offer legal aid funded legal advice to our Family Law and Criminal Law clients.

Our Family Law solicitors can offer legal aid funded services in a limited number of situations, including care proceedings (when Social Services become involved with your family and your children), cases where there are threats or evidence of domestic violence towards adults or violent or abusive behaviour towards children, cases involving child abduction, providing legal representation for a child, legal advice in support of mediation, cases where an injunction is required to prevent a family member (such as a spouse or partner) from doing something and also in cases where a forced marriage protection order is sought.

Our Criminal Law solicitors offer legal aid funded services to people looking to defend themselves against an accusation of criminal wrongdoing. This includes people who have been accused of motoring offences, such as driving whilst disqualified or dangerous driving.

In addition to the legal aid funded services listed above, a number of departments at Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors offer fixed price legal advice, such as our Family Law department and our Private Client Law department.

Our Employment Law department also offers an Employment Solutions package for employers, giving them access to advice from one of our Employment Law Solicitors for help dealing with legal issues in the workplace. The Employment Solutions service involves a fixed monthly fee based on the size of your organisation and your employment needs, with prices starting from £99 a month.

To find out more about legal aid, or any of our fixed price legal services, such as our services for those looking to divorce, to dissolve a civil partnership or to draft a will, please contact our office. We also offer up to 10 minutes free legal advice to all clients over the phone, and longer in-person consultations at our offices with prices starting at £100 inclusive of VAT for a 30 minute consultation with one of our lawyers.
