ANDREWS EMPLOYMENT LAW CONSULTANTS

Andrews Employment Law Consultants was formed by Jenny Andrews. She has many years experience as both a Lawyer and a Manager so she understands the needs of employees and understands how employers operate.
We are based in Hinckley in the Heart of the MIdlands and mainly see clients from Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Notinghamshire, however we are happy to see (or give advice) to clients anywhere in mainland UK.
We work with both employees and employers, however we specialise in assisting those claimant's (employees) who for whatever reason do not qualify for community legal services funding (legal aid).
The criteria for funding is quite strict and many people do not qualify simply because of the amount of equity in their home or savings in the bank, regardless of how little income they have.
Where no funding is available, a claimant has only four courses of action:
Instruct a solictor/lawyer who will charge an hourly rate, requesting payment on a regular basis
Investigate whether you have legal expenses insurance as part of your home or motor insurance policy
Try and find a solicitor/lawyer to take the case on a no win, no fee basis
Manage the claim themselves
Option 1 is not particularly helpful when you have been dismissed and have no income.
Options 2 and 3 are a possibility, however most no-win, no-fee lawyers or legal expense insurers only take on cases with a high probability of success and/or a likely prospect of a large award. In the case of no-win no-fee, they then usually insist on a high percentage of the final award. With legal expenses insurance you keep all the award.
Andrews Employment Law Consultants believe that all claimants if they do not qualify for legal aid, or have no legal expenses insurance should have access to assistance on a no-win, no fee-basis and so our criteria for taking on a case has a lower threshold and our fees are often much less.
We offer a free initial no obligation consultation via telephone. This will allow us to determine how best to assist you and give us an idea of whether you are likely to qualify. Calls are charged at the standard rate, we do not utilise premium rate numbers.
