Do you need a Lawyer?
Clients are encouraged to contact Legal Aid immediately to find out if they qualify for a free lawyer. It is a good idea to get a lawyer to represent clients at their bail hearing, especially if they’ve been charged with a serious crime.
Do I qualify for legal aid?
Legal Aid Ontario provides legal help for financially eligible low‑income Ontarians. If you are experiencing domestic abuse, please tell us Legal Aid when you apply as they have special services for these cases.
