About NE Law
Why choose any lawyer when you can choose NE Law?
Legal Services have been changing over recent years. Many people are no longer eligible for legal aid and face a stark choice between dealing with the problem on their own, paying huge legal fees, or getting advice from an impersonal call centre. We want to offer a better option. One where you will only ever be advised by a legally qualified advisor that you get to know personally. One where you are treated as an individual. One where costs are never inflated and are clear at the outset. One where your interests are always at the centre.
Talk to us and then decide if you would like our help. No obligation. No gimmicks. No hidden agenda. Just straight forward legal advice that you can trust at an affordable cost.
We do not offer legal aid services but if we believe that you may be eligible for legal aid, we will recommend possible legal aid options with you.
