CROWD JUSTICE FUNDING
One option to pay for the costs associated with your case is to use CrowdJustice (www.crowdjustice.com), the funding platform for legal action. CrowdJustice enables you to raise funds for legal fees and costs from friends, family and other supporters online.
Funds can be raised publicly, by crowdfunding from a community of online supporters, or privately, through CrowdJustice Private, which enables you to set up a whip-round among your close friends and family, with invitation-only access to your fundraising page.
Funds raised can be used to help you pay for some or all of your legal fees, costs associated with your legal matter (like court fees and expert reports), and to help you cover some of the risk of paying the other side’s legal costs if you lose.
You can raise funds at any stage, from getting initial advice to paying for the costs of an appeal. People have used CrowdJustice to raise millions of pounds to support various kinds of legal action including judicial reviews, inquests, environmental, planning, employment and immigration matters, criminal defence and much more.
Funds raised on CrowdJustice are transferred directly to our client account on your behalf, which means you do not need to handle the administration of payments or deal with the compliance issues involved in holding funds. It also means that you can tell everyone donating that funds raised will be transferred directly to your lawyers’ client account, rather than to you personally.
