Legal Aid (LA)

Payments are made to the solicitor once they have presented the evidence of the initial review and any other evidence gathered.  A decision to grant LA is made depending on the strength of the case and the likelihood of succeeding.

LA is granted in tranches as the case progresses.  It can be withdrawn if Expert witness reports are deemed unsupportive.  If this occurs there is an option to try again with a solicitor offering a CFA.
