We can act on a privately paying basis or under our legal aid contract for clients who are eligible for legal aid. We have a legal aid contract for providing community care advice.
Legal advice work in community care is covered under Legal Help scheme which includes advice and assistance but does not include representation or an application to court. In some circumstances experts including barristers can be instructed on a Legal Help case.
For judicial review proceedings and court of Protection Proceedings all court fees, barrister’s fees and other legal work is covered under the terms of a Legal Aid Certificate.
