If you’re experiencing debt problems, it’s never too early to ask for help. The stress and pressure of owing money can feel overwhelming, especially for solicitors, but there are things we can do to tackle the anxiety. Get in touch for more information on support and advice. In certain cases, for instance when your home is at risk, we can make a one-off, outright grant to clear what is owed. We will require you to take up and act on formal debt advice if we help you in this way.
If you need help and advice, we can refer you – in strict confidence – to independent FCA registered advisers who understand the consequences of debt for solicitors. Our trusted partners are Citizens Advice Manchester (CAM) and Advice Works – both have strong track records in helping our clients take control of their personal money worries to bring things back to an even keel.
If you are struggling financially, you could be entitled to statutory benefits. We understand that finding the right information and applying can feel like you are in a maze, which is why we offer confidential guidance on welfare benefits. This service is provided for solicitors who are or have been on the Roll for England & Wales, as well as their dependants.
We’re grateful always for the opportunity to live a better life despite the hand we have been dealt.
