Legal aid challenge by Law Society – a Ray of light for justice system

The Law Society recently challenged the further cuts to legal aid in the criminal justice system and you can read more about the judicial review outcome and the Law Societies comments here.

The High Court quashed regulations due to implement severe cuts to payments for document heavy Crown Court cases.

Defence firms have faced huge cuts of up to 37% in document heavy cases, according to the Law Society, and in what is already a challenging market for criminal legal aid practitioners, this is an important ruling.

If face criminal proceedings and would like to discuss your eligibility for legal aid, you can contact John Onions Solicitors on 01926 886007 or via our online form here.
