General Advocacy Services
Caxton's General Service provides free legal advice to people on a low income or who experience other disadvantage.
Evening Advice Sessions are by appointment only and take place on Monday , Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5.30pm- 8pm
Appointments are brief - usually around 20 minutes -in order to assist as many people as possible.
Call us on (07) 3214 6333 to make an appointment.
At your appointment, a qualified lawyer will give general advice, assist you to understand your options and provide a written copy of the advice. Our Social Work Service and an interpreter service are available. Final-year law students will also assist.
What to bring to your appointment:
- any paperwork you have related to your legal matter
- a list of questions which you would like the lawyer to answer
- the full name of the person who is on the other side of your legal matter. We cannot give you legal advice without it. This is in order for us to check for a potential conflict of interest. If your dispute is with a company or institution we need that name and the name of an individual if you have been dealing with a specific person over an extended period of time.
