The funding of your case is obviously crucially important. We do NOT offer a Legal Aid service for
Actions Against the Police cases. We do not hold ourselves out to be a 'Legal Aid' practice as we do
not believe that it is always possible to work at the highest level within the constraints of public funding.
Please see our Funding page for more information:

Unfortunately in the first instance can only give “general advice” concerning your
matter this is due to constraints under the Data Protection Act. Once the questionnaire is completed it
enables us to form a preliminary view about your case and how we might be able to help you.
Due to the numerous letters, emails and telephone calls that we receive asking for assistance, we have
developed a three (3) hour fixed fee consultation. Experience dictates that if we explain exactly what
we can and cannot do in an effort to identify and offer you a possible solution to your matter, then a
consultation in person would be advisable. Should you agree to the consultation, we will be able to
give more specific advice concerning your matter?

The fixed fee for the consultation is as follows: £300.00 + V.A.T (£45.00), a total of £345.00. Should
you wish to a arrange a consultation simply contact us and we will be more than happy to arrange an
appointment at our London office (by appointment only) or a convenient time and location suitable to
you. Please note that the fee is per appellant. Terms & Conditions apply.

                           Terms of Business for Suing the Police Consultations

 Our focus is on giving you an exceptional service. To help us maintain this standard of service and to ensure we
 are not wasting your time (or vice versa!), we think the best way forward is for you to consider our Terms &
 Conditions carefully before you commit yourself to anything (no small print!).

 By now you should have completed our Questionnaire (it is not too late to do this if you haven’t already done so).
 Completing our Questionnaire with as much detail as possible will help us understand exactly what it is we can
 do for you. We therefore hope you can understand why we cannot hold consultations without the Questionnaire
 being completed first.

 Important! Read the Terms & Conditions carefully before accepting them. Ticking “I accept the Terms &
 Conditions of this agreement” indicates your acceptance of these terms.
