I would like to thank Mr McMillan from the bottom of my heart for his help. I had never been in that situation before and was terrified, he made me feel safe and really did his best for me.
In most instances, you will be entitled to Legal Aid which means the cost of our representation will be paid by the Legal Aid Agency. In certain circumstances, Legal Aid will be means tested and we may require some evidence of your income such as proof of benefits etc.
