Pro bono summary advice clinic

If you live in Durham Region and cannot afford a lawyer, set up an appointment at our weekly Pro Bono Summary Advice Clinic and receive:

  • valuable summary advice
  • help with legal documentation
  • help preparing for court

Summary advice is a lawyer’s opinion based on the facts of your legal situation. The lawyer will suggest steps you can take for your case, such as what evidence you need.

The lawyer can also provide procedural information. They will explain when and how to serve documents and some of the rules governing family law.

The lawyer CANNOT provide legal representation. Legal representation is when a lawyer speaks for you in the court and to your ex-partner’s lawyer.

This service is free to women who have been subjected to violence in their relationship. The lawyers in our clinic are family law lawyers who understand woman abuse issues.
