Cost & time involved

As a not for profit organisation our aim is to resolve your dispute at the lowest cost.  CfJ is on average less than 10% of the cost of going to court.

Our charges include a fee for your lawyer’s time and any necessary expenses, such as experts and travel.  This fee is shared between the parties.

Contact us for more detail and an initial view of what your case is likely to cost.

Your CfJ lawyer will give you a firm estimate once he has looked at your case.

How long will it take

Cases are generally resolved in two to three months as opposed to going to court which can take typically one to two years, or more.

Your CfJ lawyer will provide a firm time estimate, once he has seen the case.
