According to Citizens Advice ‘Fat cat’ lawyer image creates more Litigants in Person (“LiP”). But is that really the reason?

The Gazette published an article on 29 March 2016 reporting that research carried out by the charity Citizens Advice, saw that “the rise in litigants in person was mainly due to clients being unable to afford a lawyer due to reduced funding for those going to the family court”; and “notes that some people chose to be unrepresented as they either mistrusted lawyers or were not aware of the value lawyers could bring to their case”.
