Legal Aid

Legal Aid

We offer the legal aid services for the following

  • Immigration & Asylum
  • Public law
  • Housing 

If you are interested in applying for Legal Aid then we will need to assess you if you qualify for Legal Aid. In order to assess you we will require you to bring the information listed below to your appointment.

  • Photographic ID
  • Utility bill dated in the last 2 months of your appointment.
  • Last 3 months bank statements from the date of your appointment.
  • If you are working, your last 3 months pay slips.
  • If you are working, your last 3 months pay slips.
  • If you are in receipt of Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance, Employment Support Allowance or NASS payments. Please go to the jobcentre and ask them to write a letter confirming what benefit you are in receipt of. Should the Job Centre ask the reason for this, inform them that it is required for your application for Legal Aid.
  • Recent working tax and child benefit letter.
  • Recent housing benefit letter.
  • All documentation regarding your case.

Without the above information, it would be difficult for us to assess your entitlement to Legal Aid. Our clients are required to meet the eligibility criteria for Legal Aid work which means that they are required to fall within the criteria for financial assistance and their case needs to be relatively strong in merits.

    Michelle has been a big help in supporting me through my claim process. She has explained the legalities and have been very patient through a very difficult time for me.

    I would highly recommend Clyde Solicitors. The level of service was very professional, always available to talk, efficient and understanding. Quotes for work were accurate with no surprise invoices. An extremely honest and hard working organisation.

    I was called multiple times by other companies and felt hassled, some companies even lied about the process to try signing me up. I waited, and eventually called Clyde, spoke to professional staff who empathised and talked me through the process.

    A friend recommended Clyde and I'm glad I went with them. Advice was clear and timely and all reasonable options were explored to the end of the claim process. A good outcome was achieved and a reasonable fee was charged and paid.

    The solicitor gave me very valuable free advice as to whether I may have a claim or not and spent time with me going through legalities to make sure I understood what needed to be done going forward. I really appreciate the advice and felt confident to proceed with Clyde Solicitors.
