LAO has a free summary advice line that lets you talk to a lawyer for up to 20 minutes to get information and general advice about your criminal law matter.

This includes information about your legal options and what might happen, first appearance procedures, how to prepare for a pre-trial, diversion, bail, guilty pleas, and sentencing. You can also ask about whether you qualify for a legal aid certificate.

You usually have to call and give some information about your legal issue and where you live, and a lawyer will call you back.
