Many people with civil, commercial or family disputes cannot afford a lawyer. There has already been an increase of people bringing their own cases to court and with the proposed cuts to legal aid, this is set to soar.
Graeme Swain of Swain & Co. solicitors says, “Legal Aid’s purpose is to promote access to justice. With the cuts looming, vulnerable people will be affected. With cuts in one area, costs will rise in another as courts will take longer to deal with cases where people are ill prepared.”
Here at Swain & Co. we have listened and responded to this, and to the fact that the costing of legal services is often the greatest concern for potential clients. We now offer fixed fees for divorce cases, lasting powers of attorneys and deputyship. And we will be expanding this service to other areas in the future.
