A community initiative offering Wagga's first free legal clinics to the public has been an overwhelming success.
Commins Hendriks law firm will continue to conduct its free clinics each Saturday morning (Public Holidays excepted) throughout the years. The clinic will also be offered quarterly at Commins Hendriks Junee office at 90 Lorne Street, Junee.
The free legal clinics offer people the chance to speak to a local lawyer in a confidential and informal environment about personal or business legal issues.
"It's an opportunity to touch bases and be guided about any legal issue people may have. "Commins Hendriks Chief Executive Officer, Phillip McIntosh, said.
“The free clinics are about offering a service where people can walk in off the street, without booking, and speak to one of our professionals about legal problems.
"It's a fantastic community initiative which is a first for this city. Our firm is pleased to be able to pick up and run with a concept not seen in the Riverina before.
"Our solicitors are able to deal with a variety of legal issues – business and personal – and people were general appreciative of the service available to them," Mr McIntosh said.
The clinics will run on Saturdays between 9am and 11am at the Commins Hendriks offices in Gurwood Street, Wagga, and also quarterly (dates to be advised) at our Junee office, 90 Lorne Street.
