“Legal aid gives a voice to the unheard and light to those overlooked. Without legal aid, the marginalised are kept in the shadows. They cannot be seen and they cannot be heard.”

These words from the human rights group, Amnesty clearly reflect the importance of legal aid for the most vulnerable people in our society. The legal aid system provides publicly funded legal advice and representation for those most in need and is a key part of providing access to justice. As a firm, we are proud to deliver legal aid services to our clients where legal aid funding is available.

In order to qualify for legal aid, a client must be financially eligible which means that their income and capital must be below a certain level. We provide an initial free consultation to all clients whereby we can assess their eligibility for legal aid.   The areas of law where we provide assistance to legally aided clients are as follows:

Personal Injury claims

  • Accidents at work
  • Slips
  • Road Traffic Accidents  
  • Medical Negligence

Family Law

  • Children cases
  • Protection from Domestic Abuse
