Funding of cases

This is obviously an area which concerns most people. Legal aid is granted for most cases in the Crown Court subject to means testing, so you may get legal aid but you may have to pay a contribution to your fees depending on your means. Certain higher earners will not be eligible at all. Every effort is made to have continuity of representation in the Crown Court. However, to guarantee the same partner and the same Barrister throughout the case you have the option of paying privately. This is an option more and more people are considering for the most serious matters.

Bespoke service

With particular attention to the Crown Court and the more serious and complex cases, we are able to offer a bespoke service if you would like David Smith or Anthony Egan to guarantee to deal with your case personally throughout. This is privately funded and will guarantee you the highest level of individual service. There are some cases where this extra opportunity is essential as matters may need to be investigated or evidence preserved, including getting leading counsel’s opinion at an early stage in the more complex and serious matters. Sensible and fixed quotations will be given on a case by case basis. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.
