Here at Farleys, we realise that the prospect of pursuing a legal matter can be a daunting process, whether on behalf of your business or on a personal matter. Furthermore, fitting appointments around your normal work or personal commitments is not always possible. As such, we operate a number of free legal advice sessions, both in person and online where you can talk to an experienced lawyer or solicitor to discuss what your options are for starting legal proceedings.
***Please Note*** In response to the current situation regarding the COVID-19 outbreak we have reluctantly taken the decision to temporarily suspend our Saturday Morning Advice Clinic held at our Richmond Terrace office. We appreciate this provides a valuable service to our local community but feel that this is a sensible precaution given the present advice issued by Government. We will keep the position under review in the coming weeks and resume this service as soon as possible. In the meantime, we would like our clients to know we are doing all we can to ensure our services continue uninterrupted and thank you for your patience at this time.
Our Thursday Evening Family Law Advice Clinic will continue but will be by way of a pre-arranged telephone appointment only. Please do not attend at the office.
*Our Saturday clinics are currently suspended. Please check back for further updates in due course.
We run a weekly free legal advice clinic in our Blackburn office every Saturday morning (excluding Bank Holidays) from 09.30am -12 noon. No appointment necessary, but the surgery is run on a drop in, and a first come, first served basis.
*Our Thursday Family Law Clinics will be taking place by telephone appointment only for the foreseeable future. Please check back for further updates.
