On Your Side

Specialised in Claims Against the Police and Public Authorities, we are a boutique firm providing advice and information about what to do if you are not happy with the Police or a Public Authority and wish to pursue either a complaint or civil claim for compensation (or both).

In addition to advising on all aspects of Actions against Public Authorities, we can also offer advice in claims arising out of Abuse matters (ie Historical Child Abuse, Elderly Abuse, etc), Personal Injury claims, Employment Law issues and general Civil Litigation matters.

Whilst our office is in Leeds, we act for clients nationwide.  We can arrange home visits, hospital visits and prison visits if required.

Your case will be handled personally throughout by Lisa Verro, a Solicitor with 19 years post qualification experience in these specialist areas of law.  We aim to give you a dedicated service from initial instruction through to settlement or trial, providing the highest level of service and representation throughout.  We are dedicated to ensuring that you achieve justice by holding the State to account, whether this be through a simple apology, an explanation or compensation.

Our clients come to us with a variety of backgrounds, some have a list of criminal convictions and others have never had any encounter with the police till now.  We have a policy of not acting for police officers.  We act only for Claimants.

We have a contact with the Legal Aid Agency and most of our clients remain eligible for legal aid to fund their cases meaning that they will not be at risk of incurring legal costs in pursuing their cases.  We offer legal aid in preference (subject to eligibility) to Conditional Fee Agreements to ensure you receive all of the compensation that you are entitled to when winning your case.

Do not hesitate to get in touch with us now to have a free initial discussion about your case.
