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.
Saturday Surgery Legal Advice Clinic
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. Please note: Our Saturday Surgery will not be in operation on the 14th, 21st and 28th of December 2019. The final Saturday Surgery of 2019 will take place on Saturday 7th December and will resume again on 4th January 2020.
Free Family Law Clinics
