Legal assistance insurance or pro bono?
Legal aid insurance and trade unions
Do you have legal assistance insurance with DAS, ARAG or another insurer or are you a member of a trade union that provides legal aid? Then you are not obliged to make use of the legal assistance of the lawyer of the insurer or the union. You have a free choice of lawyer. You are entitled to the quality of a lawyer: you are insured for that! We will agree the compensation for you with the insurer. We work together with all well-known legal assistance insurers. Incidentally, it happens that a certain type of case is not covered by insurance, because of the chosen insurance module or because of exclusions in the policy.
Funded legal aid
You may be eligible for government funded (addition or pro bono) benefits based on your income. Here you will find all information about additives. Unfortunately, we cannot always accept a case on the basis of an addition. This depends, among other things, on whether the lawyer is registered for the relevant jurisdiction.
Additional costs (disbursements)
A procedure involves costs of third parties that we advance and charge on. For example, the court charges a fee for starting a lawsuit (court fee). The bailiff charges a fee for issuing a summons, and so on. We will discuss these costs with you in advance as much as possible.
