Baywide Community Law is expanding its reach in the community and has set up their latest in-person clinic in Merivale.

Offering free legal advice, information and education to our community is what Baywide Community Law is all about – whether you’re on a low income, living with disability or facing other disadvantages.

The team has free fortnightly clinics in Te Puke, Katikati, Waihī, Ōpōtiki and Kawerau and have been running their newest Merivale in-person clinic from the Merivale Community Centre since October.

“It’s been going really well and it’s really nice to help that community too,” says lawyer Hayley McLarnon.

For people seeking free legal advice, Hayley says the team helps in any areas of law that doesn’t involve making people wealthier.

“We do a lot of family and care of children matters, tenancy issues, employment issues and we advise on criminal matters. We don’t do trust advice or commercial contracts. We help the little guys really.”

Hayley wants the Merivale community to know that the Baywide team is there for them and ready to help.

“Even if you think there’s no legal issue – give us a call and we can go from there and try and assess whether there’s anything we can do to help – even if we can point you to another organisation that can help!”

To make a free appointment, call: 0800 905 916.
