The firm has a legal aid contract and the managing partner Anthony Vingoe considers cuts which are being made to the Legal Aid budget.
We are currently living through the worst recession in living history and the government has to make cuts on a very large scale and these have also affected the availability of Legal Aid.
It has become increasingly difficult to obtain legal aid and it has now been announced that a further £350 million pounds has been cut from the Legal Aid budget.
The firm of Vingoe Lloyd continues to offer Legal Aid although Anthony Vingoe has also considered alternatives available to clients to fund the work which they need to be undertaken.
has therefore arranged for the office at Helston to open on Saturday mornings to provide free family law advice and has also implemented fixed fees which can be paid by instalments so that clients know precisely how much they will have to spend and when they will need to pay over the money.
The firm is operating the free advice clinic in relation to matrimonial and family law matters between 10 am and 1 pm every Saturday at the Helston office which is in Cross Street at Helston.
commented that these are extremely challenging times and we are all feeling the pinch and we must work through it together.

This is a process whereby couples, with their solicitors, work together in a non-confrontational way to resolve matters without going to Court.

is, therefore, arranging for his
fellow partners and himself to try to raise as much as possible towards the cost of the new roof for the Church.
The firm will be donating the cost of a slate for every new instruction from clients during the month of June and is hoping to raise approximately £500 by doing this.
said that the Church is an integral part of the local community in Helston and everyone needs to pull together and dig deep into their pockets so that sufficient funds can be raised for the new roof.

made a light hearted comment that couples will now have to be ruled with their heads at the outset of a relationship!
It is all too often that couples will be governed by the excitement of a new relationship and will frankly agree to almost anything during the early months.
Indeed, the old man with no hair, false teeth and a rather large tummy should now ask why the young blonde bombshell is attracted to him if he
wishes to keep his
fortune in tact!
The Managing Partner Anthony Vingoe has said very openly that he does not agree with the changes that have been made and that there will be clients who will find it difficult to obtain access to justice, particularly in relation to matrimonial and family type matters.
firmly believes that there should be far more firms of Solicitors who are able to offer Legal Aid services, particularly where they employ a qualified family law specialist.
The changes will mean that some clients will have to travel long distances to see a solicitor and this comes at a time when we are still feeling the effects of one of the worst recessions for many decades and people are struggling to cope with the financial pressures of life.
The firm of Vingoe Lloyd
has a very experienced family law team and two of the partners, Anthony
and his colleague Lindsey Jackson, are qualified specialists in this area of work.
Indeed, both Anthony
and Lindsey actively support the local Women's Aid group and Women's Refuge and have a full appreciation of the difficulties people face when involved in such a relationship.
commented that, although he
does not agree with the changes to the Legal Aid system, the decisions have been made and it is for those firms of solicitors who have been awarded a contract to ensure so far as possible that clients are able to gain access to a local solicitor.
