Free legal advice for people affected by Parson's Green terror attack

18 September 2017

Anyone affected by the terror incident in London's Parsons Green can get free legal advice - pro bono - through a panel of solicitor firms convened by the Law Society of England and Wales.

Law Society president Joe Egan said: "The Law Society offers its greatest sympathy to anyone caught up in this terror incident, or those that have occurred in recent months.

"Anyone who finds they need legal advice as a result of a terror attack in England and Wales can get pro bono legal advice from solicitors on our panel.

"Some people will have complex legal needs arising from a terror attack - some of which may not be immediately apparent. We will be here whenever and for as long as we are needed.

"Victim Support can refer victims so the process is as easy as possible for them."

Consistent, high quality, relevant pro bono legal advice is assured for everyone who uses the panel and participating law firms sign up to a protocol guaranteeing these standards.

Victim Support and the Legal Aid Agency can refer victims to the panel.

Law firms wishing to volunteer should email the Law Society pro bono department
