Legal advice

JUSTICE is not an advice agency and we do not take on cases for individuals – so we are unable to offer legal advice.

You may be able to get help from other organisations, listed below.

The Liberty Advice Line

on 0845 123 2307 or 020 3145 0461 (if you are calling from a mobile phone the “020” number may be the cheaper number to use)

open during the following hours:

  • Monday & Thursday: 6.30pm to 8.30pm
  • Wednesday: 12.30pm to 2.30pm
