I note the back of the letterhead for QualitySolicitors in 2011 stated:
“QualitySolicitors are different. We promise: … First Consultation Free”.
By 2013 this had change to:
“QualitySolicitors are different. We promise: … First free advice”.
I have no idea what “First free advice” means but rather suspect their website reflects the intention:
“Free First Advice to help explore your options and find out if and how we can help.”
I can therefore confidently state that I won’t be seeing any claims for costs for the initial attendance from such firms.
