Hi, my name is Jules (Julien), and I welcome you to Small Claims Me. If you are in the process of, or just thinking about making a small claim in the UK or even the USA/AUS/CAN (I PERSONALLY CANT ADVISE FOR USA/AUS/CAN CASES MYSELF) or need some help or advice, then please visit the forum page and make a post.
Small Claims Me, gives open and private small claims advice and has helped people successfully through the process of the small claims court, and who are unrepresented.
Solicitors in the UK often won’t take on a small claims case due to not being able to charge for their costs. Although not a solicitor, a lay representative in the UK, may be partially qualified either by experience or qualification, as in my case. Also solicitors or other legal professionals, and legal students hungry for experience both in the UK and probably in the USA may give advice for free or for a tokenistic fee, so why not give us a try and post your case.
(UK CLIENTS) If you are in need of legal guidance on any issue to do with small claims and small claims only, be it writing letters before action or even trial hearings, free help is often available for you through the whole process, and where I personally decide to take on your case it will be at no cost to yourselves (until further notice).
(USA/AUS/CAN CLIENTS) I personally dont know much about the system of small claims in the USA/AUS/CAN but, and i’m flying by wire here, imn sure there are people hungry to help you in your claim from the relevant countries.
Due to time constraints and other ongoing projects and doing this on my own, I can’t always guarantee that I personally, will be able to take on your UK claim, but that is the point of the website.
SCM also offers online mediation services for those wishing to resolve an issue or dispute outside the court system. Again clients should seek to ascertain whether or not the mediator has a recognized qualification and/or experience. Mediation is an unregulated activity however, and there are many superb independent mediators out there hungry for cases. Mediators will usually charge for their services and these costs should be organised between yourselves outside of this forum please.
