Who we are and what do we do ?

With over 10 years experience in the industry LGFA92 was founded by an experienced Council Tax advisor and paralegal , with a background primarily in Council Tax recovery. By being specialists in Council Tax legislation our aim is to provide expert, independent and high quality legal assistance to Council Tax payers. We can assist in a full range of Council Tax legal disputes, from discount disputes to liability disputes and everything in between.

LGFA92’s specialist Council Tax advisor is an Associate Paralegal (A.Inst.Pa) of the Institute of Paralegals As a member we agree to work via their code of ethics and our membership is subject to their code of conduct for complaints. Please note the the following regarding how we can act for you.

Paralegals can do many things a solicitor can do – but not everything. Some work, known as ‘Reserved Activities’ can only be carried out by a solicitor, or a specifically licensed individual. In brief, a paralegal is legally trained and educated to perform legal tasks and offer specialist legal assistance in their field but is not a qualified solicitor.
