Legal Aid may be available in both civil and criminal cases depending on the circumstances of the case and your financial means. If you think you may be eligible for Legal Aid then mention this to your Advocate at the earliest opportunity. Note, however, that not all Advocates will do Legal Aid work. The Legal Aid system in Guernsey is undergoing significant changes at present moving from a fairly informal arrangement to a statutory basis.
Either discuss the possibility of Legal Aid with your Advocate or contact the Guernsey Legal Aid Service at 28 Glategny Esplanade, St Peter Port, GY1 1WP (tel. 01481 747530) for further information. The Legal Aid Administrator is Ms Hayley Cooper.
