Specialists in Serious Fraud and Complex Criminal Defence
Funding Your Case
We offer City firm standards at affordable prices
Our Lawyers will be happy to discuss the methods of funding that are available and appropriate in your case. We undertake both private fee paying cases as well as cases which are publicly funded by Legal Aid.
Members of the firm are more than willing to speak with or meet potential new clients on an informal basis to discuss issues of funding and the case generally.
At MPR we are able to offer Legal Aid (subject to certain conditions) for criminal cases. Whilst we remain committed to providing a high quality of service to our legally aided clients we have found that many of our clients no longer wish to pursue a case on Legal Aid as they appreciate that due to the fact that legal aid funding has been cut almost each year since 2007 that they perceive that self funding is the way forward to guarantee the best possible representation and maximise the chances of success. This is particularly true for professionals, company directors, those individuals who are subject to Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) checks and for anyone who is of good character. Most of our clients choose to pay privately for their representation. Whilst we have a legal aid department to service the needs of the most vulnerable and needy in our communities it is a sad fact that Legal Aid and Private representation are worlds apart. Whilst we will provide our legal aid clients with a good service we are constrained by levels of funding which have been cut by successive governments.
If you are a person of good character or if the impact of a criminal conviction will have serious implications for you or your career then we would recommend that you pay for our services rather than even considering Legal Aid. The choice is entirely yours as at MPR Solicitors we are dedicated to the performance of publicly funded work and you will get an excellent service none the less. Our reputation is based on our results.
We offer a special FIXED FEE from £295 (+vat) initial consultation of up to an hour with a specialist solicitor. Sometimes this is all that is necessary to help resolve your issues or help you decide if you want to go further. We will be able to put your mind at ease. You can call us now to make an appointment with an expert solicitor and make payment online to get fast effective legal advice.
