The outcome of the tender for face-to-face legal aid contracts for 2013 providers was confirmed by the Legal Aid Agency via their recent bulletin dated 9th May 2013. Hardings Solicitors are delighted to have a confirmed contract to supply legal aid in family law and housing and debt. However, changes implemented from the 1st April 2013 mean public funding (legal aid) is now available in fewer case types. If you do not qualify for legal aid we will review your matter and explore other options available to you. It is our aim to continue to supply legal services to our community despite the recent cuts in funding by the current government.
