Funding your case

 

We understand that affordability is a concern for anyone needing the services of a lawyer. We pride ourselves on providing good value for money to all our clients - whether private individuals or organisations.

We will discuss these options with you at the outset, and we will be fully transparent about costs and keep you informed all the way through. We offer a free initial consultation for assessment of your case.

 

Private Funding

If you are privately funding your case, we will advise you from the outset as to the likely cost. We will keep you informed of progress throughout your case and let you know immediately if we have to revise the estimate of costs that we have given you.

 

Fixed Fee

We can offer a fixed fee for your case, so you will know the exact costs of your case.

 

Legal Aid

We have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency in Community Care law. This means that if you qualify for Legal Aid, you can receive free funding to enable us to represent you in your case.

Legal aid is only available to those on a low income or in receipt of benefits and with the approval of the Legal Aid Agency. We will explain how the Legal Aid scheme work and whether you qualify.

Non-means-tested Legal Aid is available for Deprivation of Liberty Safeguard (DOLS) cases under Section 21A of the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
