Kia ora! Do you need legal help?

Coming into a session is the fastest way to receive advice from us. See the timetable for our offices below, or check whether we offer free legal advice in your neighbourhood. Please be aware that our services are not first in, first served, instead we prioritise by legal urgency.

We are able to advise over the phone or e-mail if you are unwell or self-isolating. This is not a quick service and people usually wait a few weeks between filling out the general or refugee/immigration form and receiving advice.

If you can’t come into a session and your request is urgent, please call our reception on 04 499 2928. Otherwise, please fill in one of these forms:

  • Both our Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington) and Te Awa Kairangi (Lower Hutt) offices will be closed on Waitangi Day, Tuesday February 6th.

Note: ACC Legal Advice Specialist Session Discontinued

We’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue the ACC specialist session, due to a lack of availability of volunteers with expertise in ACC. The Friday 12-2 Legal Advice Clinic will still be open for General Advice. We can still provide guidance for initial first steps for ACC matters, however, can no longer provide specific and specialist ACC advice. Thank you for your support and understanding.
