Legal Aid can give you financial help to obtain the expert advice you need from this practice. Whether you qualify depends on your financial position. Even if you own your own home and have some savings in the bank, you could still get some financial help.

  • For those aged under 18 years
  • For those in receipt of Income Support
  • For those in receipt of Employment Support Allowance (ESA)
  • For those in receipt of Job Seekers Allowance (JSA)
  • For those in receipt of Guaranteed State Pension Credit
  • For those on Universal Credit
