Legal Fees Guesstimator

For those who work in the world of legal costs law it is generally recognised as being, at best, an art rather than a science. 

However, the other day I stumbled across an attempt to make the process of predicting legal fees more accurate.  I don’t know what other people stumble across on the internet but I suspect some are using slightly different search terms to me. 

A Canadian law firm offers the online Legal Fees Guesstimator (see link).  You enter some very basic details of your future family trial and it produces a guestimate of the likely legal costs.

I have no idea how accurate it is but can confidently state that it is sure to produce more accurate figures than many of the claimant legal costs estimates I see here.

    You ought to see the Defendant ones I see. A former insurer’s solicitor freely admitted to me that their practice was to halve their fees so as to ensure that those of the Claimant were by definition “disproportionate” It would be so boring if the truth was told do you not think?
