At Crockett & Co. Solicitors we believe everyone should be entitled to legal representation and as such take great pride in being able to provide publicly funded legal advice. There have been a number of substantial changes to legal aid in recent years however our staff remain committed to ensuring those who are entitled to legal aid receive any such advice.
Legal aid is available in some areas of family law despite the recent Government cuts and at our first meeting with you we will consider your individual case and needs and advise whether you are eligible for legal aid.
Legal Aid is available for some family cases and is both means (income) and merits tested. Please attend one of our drop in clinics or make an appointment for a free 15 mins appointment to discuss eligibility.
We understand the need for knowing the full costs of instructing a Solicitor before advising whether to take any further action. In some cases it is possible for us to carry out work on your behalf on a fixed fee basis as opposed to the traditional hourly rate. Please speak to a member of staff to see if this is something we are able to assist with.
We offer a number of different fee paying arrangements suitable to your individual needs. We will be honest and open about our fees from the very beginning, which will be charged at an hourly rate. We will ask for a payment on account in the first instance and give you an estimate of what we would expect the case to cost overall. We will provide running totals at regular intervals so that you are always informed of the work we do on your behalf.
We are flexible about payment methods and can offer a direct debit system so that you pay as you go. We accept debit and credit cards.
