Why work with our Welfare Law team?

At Astraea Legal our dedicated Welfare Benefits team has an incredible record of successfully assisting our clients in challenging incorrect decisions. Our friendly and experienced advisers have over 30 years’ experience and offer professional advice and representation to help our clients navigate this complicated system.

We are proud of achieving excellent results that have a positive effect in improving our clients’ lives.

If you require professional advice and representation in relation to an accusation of benefit fraud, then our welfare team works together with our criminal litigation team to provide holistic advice, support and representation.

How we can help you?

We will assist you to understand legal processes and to challenge negative benefit decisions especially since the introduction of Universal Credit. We provide advice and representation in relation to all welfare benefits appeals to the First Tier Tribunal and applications for permission to appeal to the Upper Tribunal.
