The UKs leading Legal Aid practice Duncan Lewis has extended its Drop-in Service and is now opening its doors of their Hackney branch to the public on Saturdays.
Currently operating from Tuesday to Friday, the surgeries offer free initial advice on matters relating to Employment, Immigration, Welfare Benefits, Housing and Family.
The surgery also initially gives an indication of whether a member of the public is entitled to Legal Aid. For those who do not qualify for Legal Aid, Duncan Lewis offer a 30 minute free consultation to attempt to find insurance, CFA (Conditional Fee Agreement) or other public funding.
Shany Gupta, CEO of Duncan Lewis comments:
"We appreciate that some people who require our help are restricted to when they can visit us. There has been considerable demand for the Saturday surgery and should it prove successful at our Hackney office, I am sure this will become common practice across all Duncan Lewis branches."
The Saturday surgery is open from 09:30 - 15:30 and can be found at:
1 Kingsland High Street
