Free Legal Advice at Our Offices

Our city offices are open every day, Monday to Friday, but we only have lawyers available to help you at certain times of the day and night. Scroll down to see our timetable.

You are welcome to attend any of our drop-in sessions shown on the timetable. You don’t need to make an appointment – it’s first in, first served and the doors open 30 minutes prior to the sessions starting. We recommend arriving then if you can.

All of our services are totally free and confidential, and you’re welcome to bring a support person with you. We have tea, coffee, and hot chocolate available, and also a whānau room with toys, books, and colouring in as well as comfortable places to breastfeed or change nappies. Children are totally welcome.

If you need an interpreter, we can get Language Line on the phone for you in your chosen language. If you need an NZSL interpreter, feel free to bring someone along with you, or we can organise this for you at our end if you let us know in advance when you’ll be coming in.

Some of our sessions have specialties, where you can get expert help on

Or where you can see someone who’s right for you, such as a Māori lawyer or a woman lawyer.

We also have General sessions, where lawyers can help you on a range of issues, such as:

  • Domestic violence
  • Work and Income
  • Debt
  • Police
  • The criminal court
  • Trouble with neighbours, flatmates, or landlords
  • Problems at school
  • Death in the family
  • Human rights
  • Consumer issues, and more.

If you need any help figuring out which of our services is best for you, feel free to give us a call on 04 499 2928 or email us at info@wclc.org.nz.
