Costs and Legal Aid

The question of what costs you might have to pay when instructing a lawyer can be very confusing.

When you use a lawyer or firm that we regulate, they must make their fees as transparent as possible. Charges vary between lawyers and different law firms so you should shop around to find the best one for you.

You may be eligible for help with legal costs such as legal aid, or in some cases a lawyer may offer to work for free ("pro bono"). There are also various sources of free legal advice.
