Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
If you are found not guilty and you have paid private for representation your Solicitor can ask for costs.
This is a system whereby they send the bill and breakdown to a central office for assessment.
You may get back all or some of the costs paid
But there is a central system which costs can be 'taxed' or assessed
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
