AvMA’s pro bono inquest service
In a limited number of cases, AvMA can help investigate your case and try to provide expert representation at an inquest. The service is free of charge, although if your case is taken on you will be asked to cover out of pocket expenses.
We are a small team and unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee representation or that we will be able to assist with every case, however we do try and provide help to as many people as possible.
If you would like our support in dealing with an inquest, please contact our helpline or complete an inquest new client form:
