Court Papers Review
Small Claims actions in Scotland were replaced with the new Simple Procedure model. This allows you to raise an action to recover a sum of money up to £5,000.
Despite the intended simplicity behind Simple Procedure, it can still be a daunting task. It can be difficult to ensure that you have used the correct form and have all the documents you need in order to be successful in your case. One option would be to instruct a solicitor to do this for you, which we can assist with. However, we at Khan Law are able to offer a second option.
This is called, ‘Court Papers Review.’ If you choose this option a solicitor will review all of your Simple Procedure paperwork to ensure that it is correct. This means that you do not need to worry about the documentation and can represent yourself in court. This will in turn save you more money.
A Court Papers Review will include the following:
- Consultation with a solicitor regarding your case
- A review of your simple procedure documents by a qualified solicitor
- Pointers on any gaps in your case
At Khan Law we are committed to assisting you with your legal issue. For some of our clients this is the first time that they have instructed a solicitor, however, we will ensure that we explain the process in full to you to make your customer journey as smooth as possible. We will discuss funding options with you so that you are clear on how much things will cost. There are no hidden fees.
