Why are you doing this instead of working for a charity, local authority or law firm?

  • Is there a charity that has a sustainable funding model to meet the advice needs of its beneficiaries? KDR is a sustainable growth model.
  • The charity and public advice sector is shrinking whilst demand is increasing – we need a growth model.
  • Should disabled people be dependent on charity for the pursuit of their rights?
  • I’ve had positive experience of no win no fee non-lawyer agreements in my own life. I liked the fact that my adviser would only get paid if he won my case! It felt much better than either being frightened by solicitors costs or being dependant on charity.
  • Solicitors are too expensive for the vast majority of people and legal aid for the areas I work in has all but disappeared.
