Legal Aid


Do you qualify for Legal Aid?

Legal aid allows you to receive funding for legal advice and representation. The help that you can get will depend on a number of factors, namely; the nature of the charges you are facing, whether or not you are in custody and whether you plan to plead guilty or not guilty.

“Legal aid is available for a wide range of offences and we offer advice on your eligibility for legal aid during your free initial consultation.”

Should you qualify for legal aid then you will not have to pay towards the cost of your defence. Want to know more about legal aid? Check out Scottish Legal Aid Board
