Free telephone consultation
We offer you a free first telephone consultation. This consultation aims to provide you with general and concise information on your legal concerns. However, you must understand that this first consultation does not allow us to provide you with a complete legal advice on your file. Indeed, we must study all your documents before making specific recommendations or assisting you in your legal proceedings.
We accept legal aid mandates. If you wish to verify your financial eligibility for legal aid, we suggest you consult the Commission des services juridiques website.
If you think that you are eligible for legal aid, it is your responsibility to take the necessary steps with a local legal aid office in order to obtain a legal aid mandate. You must contact us before doing so in order to verify if we can represent you.
