Malcolm Johnson appeared on LBC last Friday to talk about the government's proposed legal aid cuts.

Malcolm acts for a number of vulnerable people, both children and adults who have suffered abuse. Many of these people rely on legal aid to fight their cases.

Malcolm said:- "One can understand the government's wish to cut costs, and perhaps put the money saved into the health service. The trouble is that we have many vulnerable people in our society, for whom life is a struggle. These are the kinds of people for whom debt, housing and education worries are a daily source of anxiety. Simple legal advice can make all the difference. We shouldn't be taking something as basic as that away."  

Malcolm is an Associate Solicitor at BL Claims Solicitors, specialising in child abuse compensation claims, as well as compensation claims brought by vulnerable people. He is the co-author of Child Abuse Compensation Claims, published by Jordans.
