LEGAL ADVICE

When people find they are unable to fund legal advice, many give in to the opposing party. Otherwise, they become “litigants-in-person”, attempting to fight their own cause without any legal advice at all.

Lifeline Legal™ provides… MORE

OUT OF COURT SETTLEMENTS

Do not despair. Many cases are settled out of court. Having an effective out of court settlement can be a very effective solution to your problem.

Lifeline Legal™ can assess your case… MORE

ACCOMPANYING YOU INTO COURT

If you are representing yourself in court, we can assist you as a “McKenzie Friend”. These are people who accompany litigants-in-person into civil courts. The majority of McKenzie Friends act only “in the moment” and do not carry out work for the client before or after the event. However, Lifeline Legal™ is different… MORE

SERVICES FOR LAW FIRMS

Lifeline Legal™ also provides a support service to law firms and litigants-in-person. This work includes a variety of in-depth tasks, such as analysis and interpretation of evidence. For example, we are able to analyse video evidence in detail and provide you with a report of our findings, to demonstrate clearly the key evidential issues… MORE

 

OUR ETHOS

Employment cases—In the employment scenario, there is no provision for legal aid, unless… MORE

HOUSING STATISTICS

Over 170 tenants are evicted in England and Wales every day.

The North East contains particularly high rates of eviction. One of the most shocking facts concerning evictions in Newcastle, is that there is a shortage of 2,000 homes. A person who is made homeless… MORE

EMPLOYMENT STATISTICS

As businesses operate with ever-increasing emphasis in disgracefully regarding human beings as merely “human resources”, to use and discard at will, a great many people have their jobs taken away from them without realising that their employer… MORE

OUR FEES

Lifeline Legal™ operates a “contingency-based, fixed fee system”. This means that we will agree “success criteria” with you. These might be achieving an out of court settlement instead of going to court. Our fee would only be payable if… MORE

WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT DO

The Legal Services Act 2007 determines what are “reserved legal services” (i.e. those than can only be conducted by a solicitor) and “non-reserved legal services” (i.e. those that are not protected in this way, so can be done less expensively by a business such as Lifeline Legal™) MORE
