Helping us to help you
We’re here to help and we can best do that the more information you give us about your circumstances:
- let us know if there is an important date coming up for your problem;
- bring as much paperwork with you as possible to an appointment;
If you can’t make an appointment, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can offer it to someone else ( we cannot book appointments or provide advice using email@example.com).
And please remember…we don’t make the law, we just advise on it so we can’t guarantee giving you an answer that you’ll like. Good advice isn’t always good news.
