Lay representative & McKenzie Friend
Going to court as a victim or the accused can be one of the most daunting events someone can go through. The cost of solicitors today can be extremely expensive and for some more than they can afford altogether, coupled with the ever-decreasing legal aid available. At Cawley & Davis we can help by representing you in court as a lay representative. We can discuss the legal matters in hand and offer advice and guidance, we can be there throughout the whole process from start to finish to support you.
We can also offer the services of a McKenzie friend, we can provide moral support, take notes, assist with the case papers, give advice on points of law and procedure. We will advise you on issues you may want to raise in court and questions you may want to ask the witnesses. In some circumstances the judge may grant us what is termed “rights of audience” in a case. This would allow us to address the court and conduct your case for you.
