A Todmorden law firm is launching a free weekly legal clinic every Thursday at its Water Street offices.
The aim of this new, complimentary service, by Wrigley Claydon Solicitors is to provide initial advice, on a wide range of legal issues excluding criminal, to those within the local community of Todmorden.
Emma Piszkalo, associate solicitor said:
“With the wide scale cuts to the legal aid system occurring earlier this year we are concerned many people within our local community are not seeking the advice they desperately need.
“We hope that our free service will allow people to raise queries and get help or information on crucial matters.”
“We are proud to provide the local community of Todmorden with a service that no other law firm in the area provides.”
The free half-hour meetings for each client are being held between between 1pm and 2pm and 4pm and 6pm every Thursday.
