Family law firm Hunter & Uro is launching a new scheme to help key workers access its legal services at a discounted rate.
The firm, which has practices in London and Bedfordshire, will offer a 20% discount on its standard hourly rates to eligible clients, who are typically performing public sector roles.
Philip Hunter, Partner at Hunter & Uro, said: “We are delighted to be unveiling our key worker discount scheme. We recognise that there are people in our local communities who do an amazing job and provide essential services for our community on a daily basis but feel they cannot afford legal support when they need it.
“We wanted to do something practical that acknowledged the contribution made by these people and provide tangible support to them whenever they have a need for family law advice – for example with divorce, finance, pensions, separation, issues relating to children, or any other ongoing family legal issue.”
Fellow Partner Pui Uro added: “We’re always looking for ways of making it easier for people to access our specialist family legal services, and we’re very proud to offer this new initiative for key workers. It follows our commitment to providing monthly payment plans and the imminent launch of our Pro-Bono Scheme.”
Clients eligible for Hunter & Uro’s key workers discount scheme include:
- NHS staff
- State sector teachers and nursery teachers
- Police Officers
- Community Support Officers
- Prison Officers and prison staff
- Probation service staff
- Social workers
- Ministry of Defence personnel
- Environmental Health Officers
- Highway Agency Traffic Officers.
Key workers are required to provide evidence of employment, such as a payslip or a suitable contract of employment, to qualify for the scheme.
