Legal First Aid
I have worked in a high street solicitors practice for 22 years, during that time I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in relation to Private Family Law, Mental Health Law, Public Law and Criminal Law.
Working in the legal profession has allowed me to witness first hand the devastating impact the government cuts to Legal Aid have had upon individuals and families. Costly solicitor fees and cuts to Legal Aid have made access to justice increasingly difficult. I just wish to hopefully 'bridge that gap'.
I have empathy and understanding to many situations people may find themselves facing. I will be on hand to offer support and guidance throughout their journey in relation to family matters

What People have said:
What is a Paralegal ?
"A Paralegal is a person qualified through education and training to perform substantive legal work that requires knowledge of the law and procedures but who is not a qualified solicitor, barrister or chartered legal executive"
Legal First Aid is a support and assistance service.
Legal First Aid does not provide legal advice but will point you in the right direction to a solicitor/barrister when specific advice is required
