What People Say About Me

Great experience

Prakash Ruparelia was extremely knowledgeable about my benefits issue, where other firms had not been able to help me. He was communicative and reassuring, and provided sound advice that helped me to avoid issues further down the line. I would recommend his services.

Pensions advice

I highly recommend Prakash Ruparelia from Scott-Moncrieff & Associates. He helped my mother to find a prompt and cost-effective way of resolving her case. At each stage of legal process Prakash gave clear and concise advice and provided an honest appraisal about the merits of our case. This helped us to make informed decisions about what steps to take. Always calm and well-prepared, Prakash worked tirelessly to achieve a brilliant result for us.

PIP 1st Tier Tribunal Appeal

I would like to thank Prakash Ruparelia for preparing appeal and representing my son at the PIP Tribunal last week. It was really helpful to have his expert guidance and reassurance throughout what has been a difficult and stressful process. The appeal was successful.

Pip appeal / Tribunal

He was professional and communication was key for me, he always responded to any queries I had.

I would highly recommend their services and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

Welfare Benefits

The welfare benefits system is full of many complex and technical rules. It can be quite daunting for a claimant to be told that they may lose the benefits that they have become reliant on.  Some claimants may also be subject to an accusation of benefit fraud. This could potentially lead to a prison sentence and having to repay overpaid benefits.

Making sure you get the correct advice and assistance early, from a qualified solicitor is the best way to help you get the right result and defend your position. I can assist in all types of benefits appeals against the Local Authority, DWP, or HMRC.

There are not many experienced qualified social security law solicitors in the UK. I am one of a few welfare benefits solicitors in the UK with the specialist legal knowledge to deal with appeals against the DWP, HMRC, and the Local Authority.

I can assist with the following types of benefits matters:

  • Appeals
  • Defending Benefit Fraud Allegations
  • Mandatory Reconsiderations
  • Representation At Interviews Under Caution
  • Tribunal Representation
  • Welfare Benefits Form Completion

For the last two decades, I have assisted thousands of clients with their welfare benefits cases.   I have over 20 years of experience in legal practice and have supervised a team of lawyers that specialise in social security law. I am also experienced in regularly presenting appeals before the Social Security Tribunal. 

Due to the changes in public funding, legal aid is no longer available for welfare benefits appeals. However, I can offer a fixed fee service in the following types of matters:
