Customer Testimonials

Very efficient professional service


Professional service as you should expect with added personable and skilled legal team


During recent family proceeding I was lucky enough to have made the right choice when I instructed Verity de Winton of Cartwright King. Verity is a gifted solicitor who is very conscientious and shows a huge level of awareness of the difficult emotional journey that her clients have to travel. She was always honest and realistic in her opinion but at the same time encouraging. She has an incredible knowledge of Family Law and demonstrated continually that she was more than competent at putting this knowledge into practice. In the Family Court it also became apparent that she also has the advantage of being a great advocate. It was a pleasure to instruct Verity, and I would recommend her for her skills, personality and expertise to anyone that I knew who needed Family advocacy. It was a pleasure to deal with Verity and the staff at Cartwright King in Derby.

The body responsible for governing legal aid is the Legal Aid Agency, who regulates eligibility for legal aid and governs the services that legal aid practitioners such as Cartwright King can carry out. For legal aid there is various eligibility requirements must be met in order to receive funding, and these requirements will differ depending on the type of case and your personal circumstances. For some proceedings, legal aid eligibility is assessed solely on "merit" - meaning that the facts of the case itself will be assessed by the legal aid agency to determine whether or not legal aid can be granted.
