Legal Aid and Legal Costs in ireland are far too high.
Action needs and must be taken.

1. 10 - 15% cut to Solicitors (etc) hourly rate of pay working under Legal Aid.
2. First €520 +vat will have to be paid by the person applying for Legal Aid.
3. Any person who is granted Bail who then commits an offence will not be given Legal aid. If the person is found not guilty Legal Aid less the first €520 +vat will be paid. If the person is found guilty that person must and will have to pay full Legal Costs.

People are making Millions from Legal Aid. This must stop. Legal Costs in Ireland should be no more than 15% above the Legal Costs within the Euro Zone.
