If you think that you may qualify for Legal Aid to enable us to represent you at Court in Criminal proceedings you will need to complete 2 forms called a CDS14 and a CDS15 (only a CDs14 if you receive non means tested state benefits such as JSA).

These forms can also be obtained from our offices, where a member of staff can help you fill them in, or from your local Magistrates Court.
