Excellent but awfully depressing article by Jo Renshaw of Legal Aid Lawyers of the Year 2012 firm Turpin & Miller in the New Law Journal on the effect of LASPO:

…The list of casualties among those who are often the least able to fight their own corner is long and depressing. There are going to be the tough moments ahead—not just financially but emotionally—and the toughest moments are going to come when we have to turn away clients for whom we have taken great pride and satisfaction in assisting for most of our professional lives and for whom there is often nowhere else to turn for help.
