New services including fixed fee court representation

At The Legal Stop our aim is to make the law and the provision of legal services both more affordable and more accessible to both individuals and businesses. To many people the whole legal field is opaque and those on the outside often find it intimidating and bewildering. We intend to change that and ensure that you can secure straightforward advice access to legal documents that will allow you to act with confidence.

The Legal Stop is proud to introduce several new services that will offer individuals and businesses affordable legal services. These are:

  • Fixed Fee Legal Advice
  • Fixed Fee Bespoke Document Drafting
  • Fixed Fee Court Representation

We have partnered with a select number of law firms and barristers’ chambers to provide access to legal services on a transparent and affordable fixed fee basis. Most legal firms charge on an hourly basis and this means that costs can quickly add up, making an already stressful situation worse. We have seen the need for providing quality, affordable advice and can ensure that qualified solicitors and barristers are on hand to provide the professional expertise that you need. This includes fixed fee court representation so that for a one-off fixed fee you can have a barrister representing you in the County Court to deal with matters such as possession hearings, charging orders or enforcement hearings. We can also help with case management conferences, applications to set aside default judgements and arbitration hearings. This means you will have peace of mind knowing that costs are transparent right from the start and you can proceed without the worry of how you will deal with a situation of rapidly escalating fees.

In addition to our newly launched offering The Legal Stop will continue to provide the same great professional service in the areas of:

  • Legal and Business Document Templates
  • Request a Template Service
  • Free Legal Documents and Information

We have a portfolio of over 300 legal document templates online and available for download. All of our document templates are professionally drafted, legally binding and subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. They are also regularly updated to comply with any changes to the law. Our templates are written in plain English and easily understandable, so you can avoid the jargon that is commonplace elsewhere. Our documents are also bespoke and tailored to your individual circumstances.

Because our templates are fully compliant with English law they avoid a lot of the uncertainty about creating the sort of contracts and agreements that everyday life requires us to draw up to protect ourselves and our businesses. We explain subjects in a straightforward way and ensure that you have the confidence to deal with other parties in a professional and legally compliant way.

At The Legal Stop we offer great value-for-money – all of our services are carried out on a fixed fee basis with no hidden extras. We also offer a 100% money-back guarantee so you can buy with confidence!

Justice Minister To Call For Magistrates To Take Larger Role

In a speech to magistrates justice minister Damian Green will defend the view that more had to be done so that magistrates become as useful as they have to be.

He will try to assure them that whenever cases are heard in the appropriate courts they run easier and with fewer problems.Do you know that The Legal Stop now offers court representation service?

Mr. Green will also mention the fact that a magistrate could sentence four out of ten defendants sent to the crown court.

“Around 40% of defendants that are convicted in magistrates courts and then committed to the crown court for custodial sentences receive no more than six months’ imprisonment,” he will say. “These are cases which magistrates could have sentenced; no, these are cases which magistrates should have sentenced; they already have the skills, capability and powers to do so.”

Such a change would contribute to the plan of the government to make UK courts work more efficiently.

Other part of the reforms will be the introduction of dedicated traffic courts, the aim of which will be to attend low-level traffic offences.

He is at the opinion that three magistrates should not lose their time for people who even do not turn up at court in the end. The proposal of Mr. Green is that an office and only one magistrate are just enough in similar cases.

Before the speech he shared his view that nowadays magistrates dealt with cases with are below their standards and potentialities.

“They volunteer to give their skills, expertise and time for the good of others, for nothing. We are lucky to have them, and we should be proud of them.”

 

Police To Tackle Sexual Harassment On London Public Transport

Police in London urged the great number of victims of sexual harassment to report the incidents each time they happen.

They are going to do everything possible in order to stop or at least decrease the rate of such experiences and this is why 2,000 of the London police officers have received training in dealing with sexual offences.

They will watch carefully buses, underground and overground trains where sexual harassment do happen most often.

As travelers in the London’s transport system have made complaints that they were not feeling safe enough, this project will now provide up to 180 officers on the stations across London.By the way have you checked our Anti-bulling and harassment policy?

Sexual harassment was the thing, they mentioned most often and shared they were afraid of it.

Most of the victims of such incidents do not even report them as they are sure police will not do anything in order to help them.

According to Ricky Twyford, an inspector who is managing the project, its aim was to encourage women speak up about these incidents.

“We hope this will send a message to everyone that we will not tolerate this behaviour,” Twyford commented. “We want women to feel confident that they will be listened to and their complaints will all be taken seriously.”

The national End Violence Against Women coalition, Everyday Sexism, and international movement Hollaback were drafted in assistance of the project.

This project is expected to take action against any perpetrators and at the same time to establish the scope of the problem and help its salvation.
