We provide initial legal advice only at our drop-in sessions and community outreach clinics.
If you require ongoing legal assistance with your legal issue we will help you find an appropriate lawyer. We sometimes provide free ongoing assistance to people on a case-by-case basis, depending on their needs and our capacity.
It is best to attend a specialised drop-in session that matches your legal issue, but we will do our best to advise you at any session you choose to attend.
We have interpreting services available as necessary, and welcome you to bring support people.
Our offices are wheelchair accessible and child-friendly.
Māori clients are able to directly access Pou Whirinaki — our services to Māori team — at 0279548336 or firstname.lastname@example.org
