Legal Aid

Legal Aid helps with the costs of legal services for people who can’t afford to pay privately for them. Russell & Co may be able to provide Legal Aid services for a range of family and civil disputes on behalf of clients who qualify to receive public funding.

  1. Please contact our Family Law team to enquire as to whether your matter is eligible to receive public funding. These can be matters involving children, divorce or separation.
  2. Legal Aid allows us to take on a range of civil cases on your behalf. Civil cases are those where you have a dispute with a person, company or other organisation. The specific areas of civil litigation where we can help include judicial review, civil actions against the police, consumer disputes and certain non-commercial contract disputes. Please refer to our action against the police page for further information.

Please inquire to find out if you are eligible for our Legal Aid service and if we are therefore able to pursue a particular legal case on your behalf.
