Making a court claim can be a complicated process. We designed the small claims portal to help members of the public understand the small claims court system, and if required get help with representation, or paperwork in court.
The Small Claims Portal is a joint collaboration with Clerksroom Direct to provide guidance on navigating the small claims court and helping to prepare and attend the final hearing.
Support for people using the Small Claims court
The small claims Portal is the brain child of Christopher MacCafferty and Stephen Ward. There is undoubtedly a gap in the support for people using the small claims court. Although it is designed to be used by unqualified people, there are still rules and procedures to follow. The Portal provides you with guidance to navigate these rules and procedures.
Hearing bundles and representation by a Barrister
It can also be a daunting prospect attending the final hearing, particularly if you have never been to court before. We can help here too. We can put your hearing bundle together and arrange a barrister to represent you at court.
