Do I qualify for Legal Aid?

The Scottish Legal Aid Board provides help towards those who cannot afford their legal costs. You may qualify to have your legal fees paid either wholly or partially by legal aid funding.

We recommend that you complete the Board’s eligibility calculator.

Alternatively, we would be happy to assist you in completing the calculator.

Should you find you qualify for legal aid, we recommend you seek the assistance of a qualified solicitor. You can use the Law Society of Scotland’s website to find a solicitor.

Do you have home insurance?

Some insurance providers will cover your litigation costs or appoint representation as part of their policies. If you have home insurance, we would recommend taking a look at your policy.
