Reassurance And Guidance — It’s Our Business
At Van Eaton Solicitors in Streatham Hill, we make it our business to provide you with all the reassurance and guidance you need. You may be facing uncertainty in your business, at work or at home — we give you clarity and options you can work with.
We give legal advice to clients involved in all types of disputes. We never forget that the people who approach us are spending their money to correct a wrong or defend themselves against claims. We promote settlements so you avoid court, but pursue claims vigorously if we need to.
What We Do
We offer bespoke litigation services and negotiate settlements in a wide range of areas, including commercial property and family law. Our principal solicitor, Jo Walia, provides a uniquely personal legal service to all clients. She believes close contact with clients is the best way to tailor advice to the particular circumstances of each case.
We aim for a city-type service at local rates. As a small firm, we do not have the layers of bureaucracy of larger firms. We react quickly when we need to, and we are available by phone or email at short notice and outside of regular hours.
Protecting Your Financial Position: Looking For Settlement
Resorting to legal action can be risky and outcomes can be uncertain. Generally, if the value of a claim is less than £10,000, it is not cost-effective to instruct a solicitor because you cannot recover your legal costs. In cases worth more than £10,000, we take all possible steps to protect your financial position, and we have an impressive track record in the cases that we handle. If dispute resolution is possible, we will guide you through the mediation process.
No-Obligation Meeting: Assessing Your Case
We offer a one-off, no-obligation assessment of your case. If your claim is strong, we will pursue it vigorously on your behalf. If the case lacks substance, we will tell you — we will never jeopardise your financial position by pursuing a case that lacks merit. If there is uncertainty on the legal aspects of your case, we will work with a specialist barrister to establish whether your claim is worth pursuing.
