Hoxton Trust Legal Advice Service

We have run a free legal advice service since 1993. Since then we have helped thousands of local people. Read their testimonials. Currently, we have 2 part time Legal Advisers and 2 Volunteer Receptionists.

We offer free legal advice on a variety of issues including welfare, benefits, debt, housing, employment, consumer and education issues to residents in and around Hoxton and Shoreditch, usually those who live and/or work in post codes N1, N4, N16, E2, E5, E8, E9 and EC1. If you live or work somewhere else, we will only be able to see you if our case load permits.

If you are unsure whether we can deal with your case or indeed if you require further clarification, just call us on 020 7613 4174 or email margaret@hoxtontrust.org or clarissa@hoxtontrust.org.

The route in to receive free legal advice is through our Drop-In Sessions:

Monday – 10:30am to 12:30pm
Thursday – 10:30am to 12:30pm

It’s first come, first served but we guarantee to see at least the first 10 people who show up at our office. Once we review your case at the Drop-In Session, we will either schedule a follow up meeting or provide you with the tools you need to progress the case yourself. Our priority is to help the most vulnerable and those in greatest need.

If you are a trained lawyer and would like to offer us some time pro bono or you are a local resident and can help us manage the legal advice service, we’d love to hear from you.
