You may be entitled to free legal aid for representation at the Magistrates’ Court and we can help you make an application. This is a means tested application and if you do not qualify for legal aid we can represent you on a fee paying basis. Our rates are competitive and in some cases we can represent you for an agreed fee.
If your case is heard at the Crown Court you may qualify for legal aid. This is a more complex application which will require details of your finances and assets. This will all be explained to you if your case reaches this stage.
