You can also take legal aid or pay the solicitor fee in instalments. Once this is decided the next step is to discuss your case with the attorney. The attorney will need quite a lot of information to help you decide whether you should take the case to trial or settle out of court. You can meet the lawyer face to face or send documents by fax or post. The following information will be needed by the solicitor to decide on the merits of your case.
