Legal Aid Reform

Written by: Keoghs Solicitors

Date: 3rd June 2013

The Government has recently introduced drastic spending cuts to the Civil Legal Aid Scheme.  These cuts will hit the poorest and most vulnerable members of society. These are people who are socially and economically disadvantaged many of whom are disabled by reason of mental or physical impediment. They need help but simply cannot afford to pay for independent legal representation.

We are already seeing the effects of these cuts – in some cases we are having to turn away people who are in dire need of legal help.

We pride ourselves on offering professional legal services regardless of economic background or social status. We are deeply concerned that access to a fair and just legal system may disappear for those who need it most.

Please visit Save UK Justice and sign the petition if you wish to support the campaign to stop these legal aid cuts.
