Legal Aid

What is legal aid?


Legal Aid is provided by the government to enable people who cannot otherwise afford to pay for a solicitor to get help with some areas of legal work.  Legal Aid is funded by the Legal Aid Agency who give contracts to solicitors to undertake specific areas of work.  Law Lane has contracts in Housing, Asylum-Immigration and Public Law.

 

What are the steps to obtain legal aid ?


There are some tests that have to be applied to determine if you are eligible for Legal Aid.

We have to determine if your case falls into one of the categories of law that is covered by Legal Aid.

We have to establish that the case has good prospects of success.

We have to check that you are financially eligible.

We will be able to help you with this and provide you with representation under the Legal Aid scheme if we are able to. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you think you may be eligible for Legal Aid.
