Josiah Hincks Solicitors aim is to provide excellent service to our business and private clients alike. We think that we offer something different and something better to other law firms in Leicester. We were voted Leicestershire Law Society’s Small Law Firm of the Year 2018, an accolade we’re proud because it was won on the basis of our service levels, our great client feedback and the quality of the work we do.
We’re also honoured to be the only Solicitors practice in the region to be appointed to the National Farmers Union’s Legal Panel. 16 firms nationwide cover all of the various regions, with Josiah Hincks exclusively covering Leicestershire Northamptonshire and Rutland. Being on the NFU’s Legal Panel, and being reappointed to the panel in 2018, confirmed independently that our service and advice was “very good” (the top category).
The Firm take independent verification and assessment seriously. It is why we have a number of accreditations including:
- Conveyancing Quality Scheme
- Law Society Family Law Accreditation
- Resolution for Family, including specialist collaborative lawyers.
- Society for Trusts and Estate Planning (STEP)
Over 98% of our clients would recommend us, a figure taken from surveying every single client the firm has on each and every matter. Most rate the level of service as Excellent or Very Good. Our team get very good reviews and feedback on their matters, and you can see them online here.
We like to think that we offer value for money and reasonable fees. You’ll see fees quoted on many of our pages but otherwise we’d invite you to speak to a member of the team to discuss your matter. We offer upfront and transparent pricing on all matters. We will inform you from the outset of our charges, whether on a fixed fee basis or on an hourly rate. We will also provide you with the best estimate of likely costs of the matter, along with the costs of any third party fees (known as disbursements) such as Land Registry, Court Fees or Experts.
In litigation matters, we can also look at funding arrangements such as Conditional Fee Agreements (commonly known as “No Win No Fee” agreements), taking a percentage of recovery (called Damages Based Agreements) or matters funded by Legal Expenses Insurance whether through your home or business insurance.
Our ethos in all matters is to provide direct advice that is tailored to your circumstances, not simply a list of options or leaving the decision with you. We hope to provide the kind of service you expect from your solicitor, but please tell us if we do not achieve that at any point.
The Partners of the Firm take great pride and responsibility for the quality of work produced by the team, and supervision and training is core to our ongoing aim for excellence.
