How Are Cases Funded?
Police Station Funding
Everyone who is detained at the Police station has a right to free legal advice during their detention at the Police station regardless of income or status. Anyone who is interviewed at the Police station can request a solicitor of their choice to attend at the Police station to represent them under the legal aid scheme.
Magistrates Court Funding
An application for a representation order (legal aid) can be made to fund the work on a case and the cost of representation at the Magistrates Court. To be eligible for a representation order the Court must be satisfied that it is in the interests of justice and that your income satisfies the means criteria.
Crown Court Funding
An application for a representation order (legal aid) can be made to fund the work on a case and the cost of representation at the Crown Court. To be eligible for a representation order the Court will assess your income and in some circumstances make a contribution order. If a contribution is required then within 28 days of the case being committed to the Crown Court a contribution notice or order detailing the amount that has to be paid will be received.
Private Fee Paying Cases
For any client or case that is not eligible for legal aid funding, we are happy to provide a variety of innovative private fee paying options including fixed fees, capped fees and competitive hourly rates.
