SERVICES FOR PRIVATE CLIENTS

In addition to our expertise, our clients appreciate the resilient and dedicated attitude we handle our assignments with.  

People face challenging situations in their lives. When faced with such a challenge, discussing the matter with a competent lawyer is important to ensure the matter is solved as efficiently and swiftly as possible. It usually also helps in settling the case out of court and avoiding a lengthy trial. This also keeps costs reasonable.

Contact us for a free consultation; we will assess your case and give our preliminary legal opinion on it in clear and easily understandable language. We will find out for you if you can have your legal expenses compensated under your legal expenses insurance policy or whether you are eligible for government granted legal aid, before signing a commission agreement. You can contact us either by phone or email or with the contact form. Initial contact and consultation are free of charge.

Compensation for legal expenses under a legal expenses insurance policy

Private clients can often have their legal expenses covered by liability insurance and legal expenses insurance included in their home insurance policy. In addition, car and motor liability insurance policies may include a legal expenses insurance policy, which can cover some of the costs of a lawyer..

We always find out for our clients if their legal expenses are covered by a legal expenses insurance policy or a liability insurance policy. This can be done before any legal expenses arise in the case.

Covering legal expenses with government granted legal aid

Private clients can often apply for legal aid from the government to cover all or some part of their legal expenses, depending on their level of income.

We will find out whether our client is eligible for legal aid at the start of the commission, and fill out the application for legal aid in our client’s behalf. This can be done before any legal expenses arise in the case.
