How can you get the legal help you need without legal aid?

We are already seeing the signs of people being affected by the reduction in the scope of legal aid, especially in our Loughborough office where our Market Street location encourages more people to simply pop in for advice.  But the withdrawal of Legal Aid doesn’t mean that solicitors can’t help any more.

At Edward Hands & Lewis we have been looking to introduce a plan to help clients access essential legal services, when they need them, at affordable rates.  This has led to our Key Law services, which currently include:

i)                    Fixed Fee divorces

ii)                   Elderly Client Care (including Lasting Powers of Attorney)

iii)                 Employment Clinics

We offer fixed fee services so you’re never faced with escalating fees and we can set up instalment payment plans to help spread the cost.

Emma Fuller is head of the private client team at EHL; our solicitors in Loughborough are experts in their fields and dedicated to quality client care. If you would like to find out more about our solicitors in Loughborough please contact us.

The focus of this is our Loughborough office as we have an easily accessible location that is ideal for people to call in whilst in town.  Our Employment Clinic on Wednesday mornings is very popular and we hope to introduce further drop in clinics in the coming weeks, to help support the excellent work of organisations such as the Citizens Advice Bureau who are the first port of call for many, with Edward Hands & Lewis being a close second!


Appointments are not always necessary, there is no charge for initial consultations and we will always try to point you in the right direction if we cannot help ourselves.  And if you are closer to one of our other offices in Leicester or Market Harborough then you are equally welcome to call in there and our colleagues will be happy to assist.
