Ruksaana approached Check My Legal Fees after suspecting she was being overcharged for divorce services by Austin Kemp Solicitors Limited. Important elements such as the name of her solicitor and their hourly rate were omitted from the documentation, leaving her with little idea about what was a reasonable bill. Austin Kept took steps to sue Ruksaana for unpaid bills of £14,601.03, including interest. We defended these proceedings on her behalf and the court agreed with us that Austin Kemp had overcharged by over £8000, leading to a reduced bill for our client following assessment.
