Legal aid can help you with the costs of legal advice, family mediation and being represented in a court in Glasgow.
If you are in Glasgow and eligible for legal aid then you will be able to receive:
- Advice on your rights and options
- Help with negotiations and paperwork
- Help if you have been accused of a crime for example advice if you are at a police station
- Help from a solicitor who will get your case ready and speak on your behalf at court
In order for you to get legal aid you will need to be able to show that:
- Your case is serious
- Your case is eligible for legal aid
- You can’t afford to pay the legal costs
Although legal aid is a scheme that helps people in Glasgow that cannot afford to pay the legal fees, not everyone is eligible for legal aid. Legal Aid may also not cover the all the costs of case or you may have to pay back the money if you win any money/property from your case, this should be advised by a solicitor.
We specialise in legal aid and have been in business for over 15 years. We represent clients in courts throughout Scotland and deal with many different types of Legal proceedings. Whether it is a civil case or criminal case you can be eligible for the legal aid scheme.
Here at our firm we believe that the provision of good quality publicly funded legal help is essential when it comes to protecting the interests of the vulnerable in society and upholding the law.
The laws in Glasgow have changed recently when it comes to legal aid, making it more difficult for people to be able to be eligible for it. When you come to us one of our solicitors will discuss your case with you along with your current circumstances. This will give the solicitor a better idea as to whether or not you are eligible for legal aid and they’ll be able to get started on putting together an application for your case.
