Do not call the number given. The matter has been reported to ‘Action Fraud’ (the police) and to the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

The provision of assistance during interviews in England and Wales is provided through an agency agreement with other legal practices. Details can be provided on request.

* All interviews under caution with the MP, SIB and IMP outside of England and Wales are funded by the Armed Forces Criminal Legal Aid Authority. All interviews under caution in England and Wales are funded by the Legal Aid Agency. You do not have to pay anything towards this cost, no matter where you are located.
** Military court proceedings are also covered by legal aid, but financial contributions might be required by the Armed Forces Criminal Legal Aid Authority - speak to your Unit's Discipline Office or AFCLAA directly regarding this. Private arrangements can also be made. Civilian court proceedings can be covered by legal aid, but this would be through an arrangement with another firm.

*** Representation at interviews and at court proceedings anywhere in the world can be subject to a privately-funded agreement if you so wish. The provision of services in relation to AGAI 67/Administrative proceedings and Service Complaints are not covered by legal aid and are, therefore, subject to privately-agreed fees. Knowing the levels of income and the costs involved in being in the military, Lynch Law is committed to providing representation at a realistic cost.
