Can I recover my legal costs?

If your case is in the Magistrate’s Court then you will be entitled to recover your legal costs under a Defendants Costs Order if you are found not guilty. However this will be limited to Legal Aid rates of payment which may be up to 30%.

If your case is in the Crown Court then you can only recover your costs if you had applied for Legal Aid and this was refused in which case it is likely to be up to 30%.
