Are you helping someone else to get legal help?
We know that people talk to family, friends, community supports, and professionals about legal problems – especially when they do not know what to do or how to get help if they cannot afford a lawyer.
Are you helping someone because their first language is not English or because they have a disability that prevents them from doing it on their own? Please let us know as soon as possible. We have access to interpreters and would like to learn how we can make our service accessible to them.
If you are helping them to navigate the legal issue, thank you. Here we hope to provide information about how you can do just that.
Our services are confidential, so we will need permission directly from them before we can speak to you about their problem.
Here are some of the ways we can help you. We can:
- let you know if their problem is something we can help with, or refer you to someone else who can help
- give you easy access to legal information and resources
- send you our e-newsletter The Legal Beagle to keep you up-to-date on our services and the latest news if you subscribe.
These are some of the ways that you can help us. You can:
- refer the person you are helping to us as soon as you notice they have a problem we can help with
- help the person find legal information on our website or print it for them
- help the person you are helping to complete the Request for Legal Assistance form
