Funding

Funding in Court

Legal aid is available to clients who pass two tests

Test one:
Is the allegation a sufficiently serious one? This might be in relation to your particular circumstances and not only the obvious seriousness of the charge which you face

Test Two
Are you financially eligible? Please contact us to discuss this as the threshold differs depending on whether your case is before the Magistrates Court or the Crown Court. You can try using the calculator at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/criminal-legal-aid-means-testing. If you are in receipt of benefits it is almost certain you will qualify for legal aid.

Private Fees

If you are not eligible for Legal Aid we offer competitive private rates for representation at court. Wherever possible we will agree a fixed price that will cover the whole costs of the case. This ensure that you know what the costs will be up front.

At the Police Station

If you are going to be interviewed by the Police you have the right to free and independent legal advice from the Solicitor of your choice.
