Many clients tend to rely solely on their own hard-earned income to fund their legal cases. This is particularly true for those from low-income backgrounds. The already rich rarely fund their cases from their own income. This places those from low-income backgrounds at a disadvantage as the already-rich clients can afford to further exploit most legal channels sometimes against the low-income owners who rely on their hard-earned salaries, families and friends. It is NOT that many from low-income backgrounds do not have access to this funding for their legal matters. They do. Rather, it is because most are not aware and, therefore, cannot access alternative sources of funding. This immediately places them at a disadvantage at the outset.
This month, De Jure Chambers is offering FREE legal advice anyone who wishes to exploit alternative funding available to them. Now is a good time to establish what is available to you. It is not when a matter becomes contentious or you have to attend court because the steps you take prior to and right at the outset can jeopardise access to funding which will be otherwise available.
