The Suffolk Law Advice Centre is a free legal service provided through a collaboration of the local charity, ISCRE, Suffolk & North Essex Law Society [SNELS] and a national Pro bono charity, LawWorks.
We are very grateful to the Tudor Trust who have provided 3 year’s essential funding for this service, from April 2016.
We offer 30 minutes of free legal advice in areas such as family, employment, immigration, housing, small claims, wills and probate, community care, personal injury and dispute resolution, from legally qualified professional volunteers
The LAC runs every Thursday of every month, made up of 8 general law sessions, 7 employment law sessions, 3 personal injury session, 4 immigration sessions, 2 housing sessions and 8 family law sessions, all staffed with specialist lawyers.
The service is Ipswich based, but is open to all Suffolk residents or employees.
Appointments are held at our offices, by prior appointment.
We offer a free interpreter service, on request, and can offer telephone advice in some cases.
We are a registered organisation with the Office of the Immigration Commissioner, enabling us to provide Immigration advice up to Level 3. Our registration number is N201400468
