Having held a long term legal aid contract with the Legal Aid Agency, we are able to offer services through legal aid funding. We can advise you as to qualification for this service.
We are happy to act on a privately funded basis. We recognise that many clients may not be eligible for legal aid or would prefer to fund their own legal costs. Whilst we operate primarily on an hourly rate, we are prepared in the majority of cases to provide a fixed fee quotation to alleviate concerns with regards to long term costs.
If, in the event you are acquitted of charges then you may seek an order that part of your defence costs are re-paid to you from Central Funds. This return would however be at the same rate as paid by the Legal Aid Agency.
