Do you live in Argyll or Bute? Are you having difficulty finding legal help? Are you eligible for legal aid?

If you have answered yes to these questions, we may be able to help you. If you contact us by phone or email to discuss your legal issue, we will assess the best service/agency to help you. We will try to refer you to a local solicitor, or another service provider if that is more appropriate to your case. If we cannot refer your case, we may be able to take the case on ourselves.
