Employment, Immigration Law And Civil Litigation
At Bernard Chill & Axtell Solicitors in Southampton, we think differently from other law firms.
We have proudly served the local community for more than 60 years. Our roots are firmly established in the south coast region, but we are innovative in our approach and much of our work in areas such as employment law and immigration is carried out on behalf of clients throughout England and Wales.
We get results. In a recent case, our work was described as "extraordinary" by Lord Justice Keith. Our victory against one of the largest law firms in the country was commended as "a stunning victory".
We are alert to the ever-changing legal needs of clients, whether they have been charged with a criminal offence or need advice on wills and probate. When we are trusted to represent someone, we commit to him or her and work around the clock if necessary.
We pride ourselves on being lawyers: It is important for us to get to know our clients as an individual so that we can clearly identify your goals, we will then work tirelessly to help you achieve them.
We offer a heavily discounted one-hour appointment for new clients. While some firms may offer free consultations, we believe the service we offer is worth it. It stands out for several reasons:
- You meet with an experienced qualified legal professional.
- Your Solicitor will be prepared, know the law and be able to take decisive action straight away.
- In that first hour, we give concrete, meaningful and constructive advice.
- The solicitor you meet will deal with your case from beginning to end.
Our clients come from a wide range of backgrounds and so do we. We have a fresh approach because most of our lawyers qualified as solicitors later in life, after successful careers in the public and private sectors. Their experience means they can take the wider view of a particular problem and not focus exclusively on a narrow legal interpretation of events.
You can contact us online or by phone on 0808 250 7260. We offer translation services and advice in Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, Polish, Romanian, Algerian and other languages. In addition to representing those on legal aid, we offer a range of flexible payment options for privately paying clients. In some circumstances, we can represent you on a no-win, no-fee basis.
