If you need to hire a lawyer in Glasgow, you might be worried about how much this is going to cost you. The good news is that it shouldn’t cost you as much as you might have thought, and this means that the whole case can be dealt with for a reasonable amount. Fixed fees and payment plans mean that you will know the fee in advance, regardless of how long your case may take.
There is a fund in Glasgow which is specifically for those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford their own representation. It isn’t difficult to put an application in, and we can help you with this, to give you the best possible chance of being awarded the help that you really need.
We can work closely with you to help you to understand exactly what you are applying for, and your chances of being successful with your application. There are only a few pages of paperwork to fill in, and we will be able to help you with this. You will only need to show us a payslip to confirm that you are eligible, and we can get things started with the rest.
There are some circumstances in which it is a little harder to apply for the legal aid that you need. This could be the case if you don’t earn a fixed amount every month, or if you have money coming from various different places at different times. You might need to provide more information about your situation – but this doesn’t always mean that you won’t be able to get the help that you need. Even if you have some savings, you may be able to get help.
If you feel as though you would benefit from legal aid, you have nothing to lose by sending in an application. We will be able to help you to do exactly this, and our experience of applications in the past means that we can make it likely that your application will be approved.
