COVID - 19 Supporting our Clients

Currently the UK is experiencing the worst viral pandemic in over 100 years. Normal life, by necessity has had to be placed on hold whilst, together, we battle this new threat to our prosperity and well being.

However, we at Lawyers4u are aware many of our clients have current ongoing legal proceedings and we wish to reassure and reconfirm our commitment to them.

Where legal proceedings are currently before the Courts we shall ensure that your interests are fully represented and that there will be no detrimental effect to your case because you are unable to attend scheduled hearings.

Further, new clients can continue to request our help in preparing new claims before the Court, be they as Claimant or Defendant.

Our professional legal teams are ready to help and we are in constant communication with the Courts so we are able to immediately advise our clients of any new developments.

At present the Courts are still allowing the filing of cases but, as to be expected, actual hearings are often conducted over the telephone.

However, in Civil Court Practice this is often the norm regardless. Civil Court hearings are primarily decided on the submitted statements of case and we at Lawyers4U pride ourselves on being amongst the forerunners in this drafting field.

So stay safe and be reassured that as an existing client we got you and if you have need of our services as a new client, we got you too.

Sample Questions

  • “… I am a 57 year old manageress of a local convenience store…  recently a young woman who I believed to be aged around 19 came into the shop and  bought daily play lottery tickets… I never gave it a second thought as she appeared to me to be over 18... wearing heavy make up. Later a man and a woman who identified themselves as Trading Standards Officers came into the shop…  [and] said I would be charged with selling lottery tickets to minors … surely this cannot be right as  the girl appeared to be over 18... “



  • “… I have been a licensee for 20 years with an unblemished record… recently a group of young patrons who have never been any trouble were questioned by uniformed police officers in the beer garden of  my establishment following a complaint by a member of the public who was also a regular… following a search by the officers it  became apparent that one of the young people had been smoking cannabis cigarettes… this person has consequently been barred… I now await a decision as to my liability in this matter…  but feel it grossly unfair that an event over which I had no knowledge or awareness… should jeopardise my good standing…”
