Pro Bono Solicitors

Citizens Advice Medway is fortunate to be able to offer some of our client's Solicitor referrals who can provide pro-bono (free) advice. To utilise this service, during your Initial Check with us, our Advisor will determine if you qualify for a referral.

Citizens Advice Medway Law Book.gifFrom there, they will book a telephone appointment for you with one of our pro-bono solicitor partners.

The current organisations we partner with for this Pro-Bono Solicitor advice are: 

  • Hodge Jones & Allen Solicitors
  • Takk & Company Solicitors

And, the subject areas our Solicitors provide pro-bono advice are: 

  • Civil Liberties
  • Clinical Negligence
  • Criminal Law

As our Advisors are booking appointments for any of these subject areas, they will consider various deadlines and time limitations. Some of these appointments are being scheduled for a month in advance due to the limited appointment slots we have available with our partners. For each pro-bono subject area, we are only able to hold appointment sessions once or twice a month depending on our agreement with that respective organisation. And each appointment slot is limited. Appointments for the Civil Liberties and Criminal Solicitors are booked for 30 minutes, while the appointments for the Clinical Negligence Solicitor are booked for 45 minutes. Since time is limited, the best way to take advantage of your appointment is to prepare your questions in advance.

*Please note that these pro-bono appointments are one-off, and we do not recommend one Solicitor firm over the other. Citizens Advice Medway only provides access to this service if it is something we determine you would be eligible for. Additionally, if you want further advice from the Solicitor or you want the Solicitor to take on your case, you will have to contact them directly and discuss this with them further (*there will likely be an additional cost for this). We are also unable to refer a client to a Solicitor more than once unless the Solicitor has made an exception.

Get in touch as soon as possible if you need help with one of the above areas of law.
