Fitzroy Legal Service offers a free generalist legal advice service. This service is held every weeknight from 6 p.m (Monday to Thursday) and 6.30 p.m (Friday) – except on public holidays and during the Christmas/New Year period as advertised. Due to current high demand, no new clients are seen after 7.00 p.m. There are no appointments.
We can provide legal advice in most areas of law. If we cannot provide legal advice, we will provide information and do our best to refer you to the help you need.
Areas of law that we do not give any advice and provide referral only are:
- Business contracts, regulation and commercial matters;
- Building disputes;
- Immigration matters (including visas) – for those matters please contact the Refugee and Immigration Legal Centre or Victoria Legal Aid;
- Supreme Court or High Court matters; and
- Our evening legal advice service cannot assist in drafting wills.
The generalist evening legal advice service cannot provide legal advice in relation to family law property matters. For those matters, please call (03) 9419 3744 to make an appointment for our Family Law Clinics.
Fitzroy Legal Service is unable to provide legal advice over the telephone or by email. If telephone advice is sought please contact Victoria Legal Aid’s Legal Help Line on 1300 792 387 (open Monday to Friday from 8.45am to 5.15pm).
