      How can you justify charging £250 per hour November 2015 then £280 per hour in early 2017. Your services did not match this sum of money.

      Our charges are reviewed in April each year and are in line with other Solicitor’s charges. They also follow the judicial guidelines for solicitor’s charges. We offer fixed fees where appropriate and regular cost updates. We are not the cheapest but nor are we the most expensive.

      Thanks Tom and yes it's well below what many firms in the South East charge. I'm not going to claim it's cheap but solicitors have massive overheads. Our professional indemnity insurance alone can cost over £100,000 per annum in premiums.

      Beckett's Solicitors represented me at court during my dispute of seeing my daughter. Without their efforts and hard work I don't think I would have got the outcome I have now.

      I count myself as very fortunate to have found Beckett Solicitors. On my initial meeting with Nadia it was very clear to me that I had selected the right person to handle my case. She is extremely clear and upfront - which, for me at least, provided a sense of security and professionalism. I've dealt with solicitors in the past with whom I seemed to be constantly chasing for information and action. However my experience with Nadia was the complete opposite. Her communication is excellent, her planning and execution are equally good.

      I had a very stressful couple of months and in that time I was very relieved to know that I had someone working for me who I knew was on the ball and ahead of the game. I really can't recommend Nadia and her team highly enough - if you're in any doubt about which firm to go with then do yourself a favour and book that first appointment.

      All meetings with Nadia were very relaxed in a good environment and everything was explained very clearly and professionally, I always had a feeling my case was in safe hands. When phoning Nadias PA I got the same feeling. The Divorce took longer than I had hoped and was more expensive however the final outcome was brilliant and over all I'm very happy with Beckett Solicitors.

      I approached Beckett's part-way through my long drawn-out DIY divorce as I needed advice on how to make the decree nisi absolute and to enforce the consent order regarding my property - my ex-partner was being very stubborn and unhelpful and we had reached stalemate. Nadia picked up my case, quickly put a plan into place and achieved both of my goals within a reasonable time frame. She was professional and helpful at all times, as was everyone else in the practice that I dealt with. I particularly appreciated her judgement on things I could do myself to save costs.

      My experience with Beckett Solicitors was very positive. My appointment was on time and the female I saw was positive, helpful and informative. She gave me plenty of advice about my personal situation and advised me on the information that was needed if I wished to proceed. I was pleased with the cost and have made another appointment.

      this stage of our family life.

      I marvel at how right she was in seeing the bigger picture at our first meeting when I was still bewildered and confused about my circumstances. Her initial analysis identifed some key tactical steps for me to take to best look after the three of us.

      Nadia and her team have been sensitive to the natural concerns I had around the two children (9 and 7) while giving sensible practical advice which has helped me to prioritise, to 'swallow some bitter pills' and to see some positives for us.

      Nadia is intuitive, clear and a sound strategic thinker who assumes a forward-looking co-operative approach, is willing to allow time for reflection when that's possible, and is willing to use latest legal developments.

      I can hardly bear to think about the cost of the elaborate path my ex-husband has forced me to take. Nadia respected my beliefs, including that I should keep my legal costs down, allowed and encouraged me to do what I can myself to progress this case.

      I'm sure these things have helped keep me going during this awful period."

      Beckett Solicitors represented me in a childcare case. Not having used a solicitor before or had any issues with family reasons I was made to feel calm and confident about what was needed of me and what to expect, good news and bad. This made me very confident in Nadia's ability to achieve the correct outcome for me and my daughter. I was always kept informed of where the case was and what was happening next and when. To add the staff at Beckett Solicitors were always very polite and helpful whenever I had a enquiries whether through a phone call or over e-mail.

      Nadia Beckett of Beckett's Solicitors are second to none, I am an injured ex service man injured in the line of duty and service to the crown and was being walked over by my local council, I suffer from mental scars as well physical injury but my local council did not take any of this into account when dealling with my case, they were quick to act unjustly and with discrimination against me, I thought I was by myself until I contacted Beckett's Solicitors of 27 High st, Rainham, Kent, ME8 7HX, Nadia Beckett saw my plight and was kind enough to give me a free conciltation to air my woes and worries, I handed over all my evidence and what seemed like a wave of a kind hand all my troubles dissapeared over night!

      Nadia was swift to act, writing to my local council in my defence to their discriminating views and actions towards me as well as placing my case properly infront of the right people who allowed me to be upgraded on medical grounds so that my carer and I could live under the same roof allowing me the care I need and a little dignity I richly deserve.

      Nadia Beckett of Beckett Solicitors gave me my life back and showed me that there are people out there who care, I will be recommending Beckett's Solicitors to all my ex service friends and my Combat Stress Charity who help me deal with my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder whose Patron is HRH Prince Charles.

      At my initial visit I found Mrs Beckett to be non judgemental and she put me at ease. Throughout my case Mrs Beckett was supportive and went that extra mile. Without her strength and support I would have given up. I appreciate her dedication to my case and her sensitive and respectful manner in dealing with me. I would recommend Becketts Solicitors

      i found the ph staff very friendly-Possibly borderline near top best ph staff experience of that type.
      [Not as good as when free ph call centre & guess which call centre & where he lived within less than mile from his accent & hadhad a really good laugh]
      (Try to make sure if being charged for call- this seems to be true of ALL soliciters-AFTER you are their client/customer )
      I m still with them & so cant yet do indended extremely extensive longest review here yet.
      Think better at some matters than others (again guess true of ALL soliciters)
      Sorry u had bad experience
      cheers
      ps staff chance over time-we may have spoke to different people,or you got a temp

      I chose Beckett Solicitors to help me through a very painful divorce. Even more important to me than the feeling my legal affairs were being well looked after was the personal approach they took with my case. Advice went beyond purely legal matters and I walked away with the strength to put my life back together. I had the impression these people were my friends, rather than just my lawyers. I have already referred one of my very good friends to the practice.
