Residents can seek free legal advice at clinic

Have your say

Two local firms of solicitors have offered their time free of charge to provide legal advice to residents of Waterlooville.

Verisona Law, based in London Road, and Larcomes LLP, from St George’s Walk, will conducted a clinic in St George’s Church Hall on Thursday, February 25 from 2pm-4pm.

No appointment is necessary as advice will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

The legal drop-in was the idea of St George’s Church press officer, Chris Gadd, himself a solicitor. ‘The ability of people to be able to access legal advice has taken a battering by the decisions of this and the last government.

‘I also think that sometimes people can feel intimidated at the prospect of going to a solicitor’s office so I hope that running the clinic in a non-formal setting like the church hall will encourage people to come and speak to our professionals.’
