We provide high quality legal advice and representation to people who feel they’ve been badly treated by a local or public authority.

Our specialist Public Law Solicitors can assist you with:

  • Claims against the police and prisons for matters such as false imprisonment and arrest

  • Claims against a local authority where children and young people failed to receive proper care

  • Inquests where families seek to understand how they lost their loved one, so lessons are learned and services are held to account.
Call us on 08002605010 or request a callback and we will help you.

Our compassionate and tenacious Public Law Solicitors will provide timely, detailed and realistic advice to clients.

And we’ll draw upon our wide range of resources, including our contacts within Chambers and non-governmental organisations.

That way, we can ensure you get in-depth, comprehensive legal representation.

Funding Your Case

We’ll carry out a full financial assessment and set a fixed fee for our services. If you receive benefits or have a low income, you may qualify for Legal Aid and we can advise you about this.
