We offer Genuine Fixed Fees

Pragma really are Fixed Fee Motoring Solicitors. Wherever possible we will work to Fixed Fees (obviously depending on what work is required). We ask that our clients pay in advance, and in return they get a better deal.

We don’t work for free, but we believe you’ll find our fixed fees are extremely reasonable; Sometimes around half those of other privately funded specialist solicitors. We give our clients real value for money and you’ll see from our testimonials that our clients agree.

However there will be no compromise in the quality of advice you receive. We achieve our lower fees by reducing our overheads. You won’t be paying for us to work from fancy offices because we want to offer something different. We believe they want the best quality advice provided in a way which causes them the least inconvenience, delivered at a reasonable price.

We’ve done our best to offer you the best value for money whilst delivering quality legal services.
