What can we do for you?
We can help you if you are looking for advice on:
SEX ABUSE ALLEGATIONS
SEXUAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS
CHILD ABUSE ALLEGATIONS
We cannot help you if:
You are on or could qualify for legal aid
If you are on a low income and think you might qualify for legal aid, you need to find a legal practice who accepts these types of cases so that you have full access to any free funding you might be eligible for. You can find out more about legal aid here: https://www.gov.uk/legal-aid
You are currently represented by someone else
This can include your trade union, another lawyer or anyone else with conduct of your case. This is because, out of professional courtesy, we would not wish to undermine the work being done by your current team. If, however, you cease to be represented elsewhere, you are always welcome to contact us.
You want free representation (pro bono work)
We currently only provide free representation in cases referred to us by other professionals who have already vetted and assessed these and have 'matched' us with a particular client. If it would help you to have a telephone consultation with our Head of Legal Practice for some general advice on your case, then please contact us to book this.
You are looking for a 'no win no fee' arrangement
For ethical reasons, we do not represent anyone on the basis that we will have a vested interest in the financial outcome of their case. From our point of view, this might limit our ability to act with independence in the best interests of our clients. This is simply our organisational policy and is not a comment on the standpoint of other practices. If it would help you to have a telephone consultation with our Head of Legal Practice for some general advice on your case, then please contact us to book this.
Your claim - if money based - is worth less than £30,000
We want to feel that we are providing value for money in having an input in your case - this is not easily possible with low value claims. This is because the amount you might pay in legal fees (to anyone, not just us) may be cost ineffective. It may be better to seek free or subsidised representation or to act as a litigant in person in these circumstances.
