I would like to thank Ms Beckett for her help in solving legal matters for me recently. Her clear explanations and availability at all times to answer my questions were hugely reassuring. I have no reservations about recommending her legal services to others.

How can you justify charging Â£250 per hour November 2015 then Â£280 per hour in early 2017. Your services did not match this sum of money.
21/11/17 - Response by Nadia
Our charges are reviewed in April each year and are in line with other Solicitorâ€™s charges. They also follow the judicial guidelines for solicitorâ€™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 Â£100,000 per annum in premiums.

Tom, please provide an example of 'City Lawyers' who charge Â£800 per hour?

Throughout the handling of my divorce Nadia's advice has been sound and straightforward. She made the process as painless as possible, and was very approachable and highly professional. I would highly recommend Nadia for any areas of her expertise.

Nadia Beckett and her team are very professional family law company I came across recently.
I was very happy with my choice from the beginning until the end of first step of making decent contacts with my son.
I don't think anybody else could help me to achieve better outcome of legal proceedings.
Worth every penny!
I would definitely recommend Nadia to anyone who is going through children's matters. Thank you Nadia again for helping me in my difficult situation.

Nadia Beckett represented me in Children's Act proceedings. She is very calm, professional, very experienced and see things in the bigger picture. She was always able to calm me down by explaining me all possibilities. The communication was always very quick and efficient. The way she managed my case using all her experience to get the most for me was worth the money I have paid. If I ever need a solicitor again I will choose her for sure.

Highly recommend Nadia Beckett who has won a "mission impossible" for me regarding leave to remove to the European Union. The process lasted almost a year. She always kept my belief at the same time reminding to reality.

Nadia was the mediator in an argument with my ex over my daughter. She was great. Very understanding but firm with both of us and we got things sorted in the end. Have recommended her to a friend.

When we first met Nadia we found her very professional and friendly and on leaving felt happy and confident that she was going to help us.
Nadia was very knowledgable on which road to take to resolve our problems. We would recommend her and feel that she achieved the best result possible for us.

I had a one off meeting and the solicitor was really nice. She was helpful and informative. It's a shame they dont have legal aid. It costme £100 for one hour and it was worth it.

I have used the services of Beckett Solicitors on three occasions and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is considering instructing them. I initially retained Mrs Beckett's services when going through divorce proceedings. Her thorough knowledge of matrimonial law together with a refreshingly pragmatic personal approach ensured that I was able to reach a prompt and fair settlement with my ex wife. Since then she has provided me with effective guidance on two issues - firstly in negotiating the termination of a contract of employment and most recently in successfully resolving a contractual dispute. On each occasion I have received excellent professional advice and a personal attention to detail that was most appreciated.

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
