I prefer electronic credits to our bank, but I can accept credit/debit card payments for value of up to £5,000 F2F per day.  Please call or email me for my bank account details.

If you are paying by bank transfer, please quote the invoice number as your payment reference.  Please make whatever arrangements suit you best. 

My menu pricing for legal fees outside legal aid is this - 


£100 plus vat £20 = £120. A telephone conversation between you and me during which we can discuss your legal problem, and I can offer legal advice based on what you tell me.  



£300 plus vat £60 = £360. A sit down meeting f2f for one hour with me at my office. In it I will read any papers you bring me, while you are there with me. I will take your instructions and give you legal advice. I will advise you on your next steps, but I will not take any steps in your case. 



£600 plus vat £120 = £720. The above plus advance detailed reading of whatever you send me in advance. 



£900 plus vat £180 = £1,080. The above plus taking next steps in your case upon to an agreed defined limit. 



After that, it is too difficult to estimate future fees because I don't know how much future work will be needed. A lot of work leads to a big bill. Less work gives you a smaller bill. 



Be aware that once I am working outside these fixed fee figures, every phone call and every text and every email costs you money. Think before you incur that cost. 


KH - careless driving acquittal, Brighton Magistrates Court July 2018

'Having been warned by someone in the know that ineffectual defence solicitors could be found in abundance, I set about finding, through personal contacts, a law practice that would do an effective job in defending me against a driving charge. My enquiries led to Bristow, Wedd and the services of Steve Wedd himself.


Steve set about my defence with the utmost professionalism using modern technology coupled with forensic skill to reveal the weaknesses in the prosecution case. His cross examination of the main prosecution witness was relentless leading to his exposure as being both ignorant of the Highway Code and unreliable as an individual.


Steves attention to detail and preparation of case papers to assist the Court with its assessment of the allegation was meticulous.


Before the trial had commenced, Steve had requested, successfully, that I be allowed to sit behind him in the court rather than standing in the dock. Having obtained my acquittal, he then obtained my costs from the Court.


Bristow, Wedd is a thoroughly professional practice and is recommended without reservation.'

I was led by Simon Russell-Flint QC in the murder trial of NK at Lewes Crown Court. NK was accused of stalking and murdering his girlfriend. He denied the charge and after a three week trial, was that he was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment, with a tariff of 25 years.
