I have a question:
If the damages being sought are within the realm of a small claim court and as I understanding it that means you cannot claim legal costs, how does CFA work?
I did a bit of research, and articles talk of contingency fee arrangements and bridging agreements.. I concluded that with the CFA route the Solicitor basicallly takes 25% - 40% of the claim, but no doubt brings a greater prospect of a win and potentially at a higher rate. Given the small damages, so far, there hasn't been much interest in the 2 or 3 CFA firm he's contacted. Not because their is no claim, but because there is no margin. It seems.
My suggestions are not legal advice
