Our Equine Lawline is especially useful for initial advice.
Many questions are arising for horse owners, trainers, riders and yard owners.
The Lawline enables equestrians to obtain legal advice without the need to instruct a Solicitor formally or to have a face to face meeting.
This is ideal for those wanting to obtain legal advice on a small claims or other matter where they wish to avoid instructing Solicitors.
In the small claims court the costs rule is that each party bears their own costs regardless of the outcome. So the Lawline is ideal where cost effective legal advice is required.
Other cases suited to the Equine Lawline are where a party is self represented and needs legal advice on a certain point.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority last week released figures confirming that 9 out of 10 people do not contact a qualified Solicitor to take advice because of a lack of easily accessible ways to take advice.
The Lawline number is 0903 991 0002
Calls are charged at £3.60 per minute, plus your phone provider’s access charge. Callers must be 18+ & have the bill payer’s permission. Live calls are recorded and are subject to us performing a conflict check to ensure that there is no conflict of interest.
