Free legal help

Sometimes you find yourself with a small question and just don't know what to do. This is when you can turn to first-line assistance, also known as Free Advocacy Advice, in your neighbourhood.

So first-line assistance does not give you comprehensive advice, but gives you a short answer to help you further along the way. If your question requires further investigation, you do get an appropriate referral so you know what to do, where to go, who can help you.

A problem often consists of more than just legal elements. The lawyers who provide this free legal advice have knowledge of the social map and can put you in touch with the right services. So it is not that this is just to get further help from a lawyer.

As a matter of fact, this help is also free for everyone. It is accessible to everyone in a very easy way to get help from a lawyer. First-line assistance is also provided in your neighbourhood, e.g. in courthouses, CPASs, CAWs, social houses, etc. You can find the full map below.

Don't feel like or don't have time to go there? At most locations, you can also ask for advice by phone.
