An initial appointment may be with a solicitor or paralegal, depending on the service area.
Any ongoing assistance after an initial appointment is at the ultimate discretion of the Principal Solicitor and will be determined in consideration of the Centre’s capacity, funding and areas of expertise. There is no guarantee of ongoing support.
In the event this Centre is not best placed to assist you, best efforts will be made to refer you onto an appropriate service who could help.
