Legal Aid funding for Criminal Defence Investigations

If you have been charged with less serious criminal offences (where the possible sentencing is less than 10 years imprisonment) and you are eligible for legal aid, you are likely to be assigned a lawyer by Legal Aid Services. This lawyer may be an independent barrister or one of the lawyers in the Public Defence Service.

Your lawyer may be unaware that legal aid funding may be applied for to cover investigative services which may be beneficial in your case.

Call us on 0800 555 795 to discuss how we may be able to assist you, or have your lawyer contact us directly.
