My background in law comes from studying it at postgraduate level, and my costs background only goes back to September 2017! I have dealt only with legal aid cases so far, in relation to care and domestic abuse proceedings. I have prepared court assessed bills and CCMS fixed fee bills so far.

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.
