I can advise you on your legal status or rights.
No. If you wish to instruct me under the Public Access Scheme you will need to be prepared to do at least some of the work that a solicitor would do before a case comes to me. So, you will need to be the person who is in direct contact with the other party and the court. I can advise you as to what to say to them, and even draft documents for you to send, but you will need to be prepared to carry out the administrative aspects of the matter. Many clients prefer this way of working not just because it saves them money, but also because it means that they retain control of the case, calling on me to assist as and when required.
