We have been dealing with this ever-expanding area of regulatory law for a number of years. We are fully aware that in many cases the client’s livelihood will be put at risk by referrals to the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).
All hearings and appeals for the SSSC are heard in Dundee. We are based in Dundee, which allows us to deal with the matter effectively and efficiently. Our firm deals with these cases in a thorough and professional manner. We will defend you against allegations of misconduct in a robust and vigorous manner. We provide assistance and representation at pre-hearings and substantive hearings. Appeals against a decision of the sub-committee are heard at Dundee Sheriff Court. It is important to note strict time limits apply.
We will always provide a free first consultation whether in person or by telephone so that you can be assured you are aware of the legal position and financial implications. We will also discuss a fee structure with prior to any further work commencing. Legal aid is also available to those who qualify for appeals against a decision of the sub-committee.
We understand that some clients will find it difficult to travel to hearings if they live out with the area and we can make sure that their case is not prejudiced because of that.
