Introduction meeting
This is usually face-to-face, it’s an informal chat around the issue to determine to best steps forward.
Sharing of Information
You email us the information relevant to your case.
Approach & Quote
This is usually face-to-face but can be however you feel most comfortable, we discuss our proposed approach and provide you with a quote for this work.

Helping People Since 1824

We can trace our roots all the way back to 1824, when solicitor John Wadsworth set up as an attorney in Fletcher Gate. Twenty-six years later, in 1850, George Bell Rothera – the first of six generations in his family to work in the legal profession – established the firm Rotheras. Whilst we have undergone a number of transformations since then our reputation as a friendly, respected and forward-thinking firm has remained consistent.
