Hot off the Press - Working with Your Legal Aid Lawyer

Our new Working with Your Legal Aid Lawyer fact sheet replaces What You Should Expect from Your Legal Aid Lawyer. Through a creative new design, we present the roles and responsibilities of the client and the legal aid lawyer in a balanced way. With these guidelines, clients and lawyers will know what to expect from a legal aid contract.

The fact sheet also explains:

  • what the lawyer’s time on the case includes,
  • what the lawyer can’t do,
  • change of lawyer requests, and
  • where to find out about making a complaint.

Knowing each other’s roles and responsibilities will help clients and lawyers work together on the case.
