Legal Aid

Sheffield Legal Aid

We are proudly contracted with the Legal Aid Agency. In some areas of practice we are able to obtain legal aid for you. For the list of areas in which we can do that we refer you to our Legal Aid page under the heading Services.

Alison Law Solicitors is able to provide you with legal aid funding in the following areas:

  1. Action Against Public Bodies
  2. Crime
  3. Housing and Debt
  4. Immigration & Asylum
  5. Human Trafficking
  6. Deportation
  7. Possession Proceedings
  8. Evictions
  9. Anti Social Behaviour
  10. Rent Arrears

If you are interested in applying for Legal Aid then we will need to assess you if you qualify for Legal Aid. In order to assess you we will require you to bring the information listed below to your appointment.

  • Photographic ID
  • Utility bill dated in the last 2 months of your appointment.
  • Last 3 months bank statements from the date of your appointment.
  • If you are working, your last 3 months pay slips.
  • If you are working, your last 3 months pay slips.
  • If you are in receipt of Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance, Employment Support Allowance or NASS payments. Please go to the jobcentre and ask them to write a letter confirming what benefit you are in receipt of. Should the Job Centre ask the reason for this, inform them that it is required for your application for Legal Aid.
  • Recent working tax and child benefit letter.
  • Recent housing benefit letter.
  • All documentation regarding your case.

Without the above information, it would be difficult for us to assess your entitlement to Legal Aid. Our clients are required to meet the eligibility criteria for Legal Aid work which means that they are required to fall within the criteria for financial assistance and their case needs to be relatively strong in merits.
