If you need to use a solicitor
When you have chosen a solicitor, you will need to make an appointment. Always check for information relating to fees before you make an appointment. Take all relevant documents to the appointment, check this with the solicitor. Prepare a list of questions in advance of any appointment. Take identification with you to any appointment, such as a passport or driving license.
You can check if you are entitled to legal aid to pay for costs on the Government website.
If you are not entitled to legal aid but are a member of a Trade Union, the Union might provide free legal representation for a variety of issues, and not just employment issues. Sometimes you might be paying for insurance for costs with legal help as part of your house insurance deal. Not many people know they are paying for this so it is a good idea to check your contract.
