What are the limits of KDR representation services?

Kester can represent you in complaints procedures, tribunals and at some hearings in the Small Claims Track of the County Court only.  If your case goes elsewhere in the courts system - e.g. to the County Court Fast Track or Multi Track we can assist with filling in forms and drafting statements etc but cannot provide representation due to court rules.  All County Court claims have to be issued with you as a litigant in person, unless we can get legal aid, which is increasingly unlikely. 

Being a litigant in person is a right and the court system must adjust to your needs. We can support you to use the courts as a litigant in person. The official position from the courts service is that litigants in person are welcomed (https://www.judiciary.uk/publications/new-edition-of-the-equal-treatment-bench-book-launched/).  Even so, this can seem daunting but it is also daunting being discriminated against.  We would provide you with information to help you make an informed choice as to whether you wish to bring a case.
