***Attention Community of London & Middlesex***
The legal clinics, including our clinic, are facing large cuts to our budgets that would likely lead to cuts to the services we provide. To assist us in trying to have the announced cuts reversed we are asking for your help.
Who we are
NLSLM is a non-profit community legal clinic funded by the government of Ontario. We provide traditional poverty law services to low-income residents of London and Middlesex County. This includes giving legal advice and referrals and sometimes providing legal representation. We are also involved in public legal education, community development and law reform.
Monday: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Tuesday: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Wednesday: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Thursday: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Friday: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
How we can help
The best way to get help from us is to call our office. We can be reached at 519-438-2890. You will need to tell us about your legal problem. We can help if that legal problem is an area of law that we deal with. Primarily, we can assist with OW, ODSP, and CPP-D appeals, some employment matters, and landlord and tenant disputes.
We might need to know your income in order to help you. If you want us to do anything on your behalf you must have a low income. If your income is from Ontario Works or ODSP you are eligible. You may also be eligible if you are on CPP or WSIB or if you have a minimal working income.
You may still be able to receive legal advice from us even if you are employed. Contact our office if you aren’t sure whether or not we can help, or if you don’t know where to find help.
Are you a tenant looking for advice?
We offer free summary advice for tenants as part of our Tenant Duty Counsel (TDC) program. TDC can answer questions about your legal rights and obligations as a tenant, and provide you information about the legal process. TDC is available Wednesday mornings from 9:00 am, and on Thursdays and Fridays from 9:00 am.
Please note: TDC is a very popular service. It is first come first served, and there is no guarantee that Duty Counsel will be available to speak with you.
