Consumer Claims and Civil Disputes

If a dispute is dragging you down, we can help you up

Consumer Claims and Civil Disputes

Our Consumer claims and civil disputes specialists handle a range of issues, including disputes with an organisation or an individual, and can advise you on what taking action will cost, how long it’s likely to take and whether you have a strong case.

So if you need help resolving a legal dispute for example about the quality of work done by a builder, a car you have been sold, money owing to you, or claims made against you for money owing that you want to dispute then our specialists can help. When a person or an organisation deprives you of your consumer or civil rights, it can lead to an ongoing dispute and considerable anxiety for you until the dispute is resolved.

It could also mean you need the best legal advice and representation to protect your interests and help end the dispute as soon as possible.

The special expertise our consumer claims and civil disputes specialists have developed in this area of dispute resolution means we can provide effective legal advice at an affordable, fixed price.

Our Dispute Resolution specialists can support with:

While bringing disputes to a conclusion through discussion and mediation is often the best result for everyone involved, sometimes cases need to go to court and we can support you through this.

Many people simply cannot afford thousands of pounds to take a case all the way to court or defend a case that is going to court. However, quite often some initial advice just to give you an idea of where you stand or to point you in the right direction can be a big help to resolve your problem.
That is where Howells Solicitors are here to help you, either as an individual or as a small business, whether you want to bring or defend a claim through the courts.


We offer initial advice for a fixed fee of £200 + VAT

For this fee we can;

  • Carry out an initial diagnostic interview with a qualified and experienced solicitor
  • Consider your papers
  • Provide you with initial advice on the strength of your case and how much it might be worth
  • Advise you on taking your case further with us if you wish.
