Covid-19 Update

In these challenging times, despite enforced changes to our ways of operating, our staff are working hard to ensure we are still available to assist and support.

Although our physical office buildings are closed at the moment, our switchboard continues to be managed so all calls will be answered, with enquiries fielded and dealt with.

Despite the Scottish court system effectively closing for the best part of three months – except for dealing with emergency cases – we remain committed to assisting existing and new clients with any civil or criminal matters.

Both the Scottish Legal Aid Board and the Law Society have recognised the difficulties with meeting clients at present.  The Scottish Legal Aid Board has indicated that we are entitled to deal with clients by telephone or over Skype (or similar) and the client can declare their income/capital position.  We can also sign a legal aid form on behalf of clients, once the information has been given.

The Law Society has indicated that, in terms of provision of money laundering information, we can again take that via a Skype call with the client showing us a copy of their ID which we can then snapshot. 

Taken altogether, this effectively means that our staff can work from home and continue to service clients.
