A personal story
"Morton Fraser stood up for our families' rights and helped us after my brother was killed at work.
We were let down by the first firm of solicitors we went to and had to find a new firm at short notice. Morton Fraser helped my family raise a claim against my brother's employers and the owners of a dangerous work site.
The case had to go all the way to court and start being heard by the judge before the employers buckled and accepted the correct level of compensation for the whole family. The employers had made five previous offers which Morton Fraser advised us to reject. I am so pleased we did reject them, as we ended up getting the correct level of compensation in the end.
I feel justice was done and that we were vindicated." - Mark Taylor, a Morton Fraser client
Our approach to fees
Our "no win no fee" arrangement gives you peace of mind. You do not need to pay for the work we do as the case progresses. We have a variety of options to suit clients' needs, and we would be happy to discuss these with you, to get the best arrangement for you.
Our low cost ATE insurance cover from a leading insurer shields you against your opponent's legal costs even if your claim is unsuccessful. The premium is only paid if the case is successful and if your claim is unsuccessful, your opponent's costs and the premium are met by the insurer.
Morton Fraser's team shows "excellent technical capabilities" and in depth detailed knowledge.
