Baywide Community Law Service can provide

free legal information

Baywide Community Law Service is coming back to Te Puke & Maketu in the near future.

The clinics are being run by Jan Whiting, a paralegal who has been with us since inception 11 years ago. Baywide Community Law can provide free legal information to all – and for those who meet our financial criteria, we offer free legal advice & assistance. We can also offer education sessions on various topics to assist the community.

For a printable summary of our clinics, you can download our pamphlet here.
