I have always found their managers and draftsmen to have detailed knowledge of current costs’ law, our case management system and to be knowledgeable and personable.
The managers Ann Henderson and Rebecca Bidwell are always on hand to support their cost draftsmen, and their strategic knowledge of how to manage the Legal Aid Agency costing process is invaluable and impressive.
