Holistic support and legal representation of formerly imprisoned people The legal advice line responds to more than 1,500 calls per month. Opening hours for incoming LAL calls may be closed before the advertised time due to high demand. If you are applying for legal aid, you may have to wait more than fifteen minutes for your call to be answered. Please be patient; Our lawyers work hard to answer all the calls we receive. When the LAL is open, you can request a reminder if you don`t want to wait until a lawyer is available to answer your call. Calls are answered and recalled in the order in which they are received, so you won`t lose your place in the queue if you choose the callback option. We will call you back before the end of the same working day. Reminders come from a blocked number in the interest of customer safety. Please keep this in mind and make sure your phone accepts blocked calls. Since we may close prematurely due to the high volume of calls, it is best to call directly when we open at 9:30 am.
