Will I recover any of my legal fees if I am acquitted?

The answer is YES. If you successfully avoid a conviction; whether that is following an acquittal at Court or following the discontinuance of proceedings by the Prosecution, you will be entitled to an order from the Court known as a Defence Costs Order. This order entitles you to submit your legal bill of costs to The National Taxing Team. On receipt of your bill, they will conduct an assessment and provide a partial reimbursement of your legal fees.
