  • criminal duty counsel who can give you free legal advice if you don’t have a lawyer on the day of your hearing
  • 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.
  • a legal aid certificate program if you have a low income and if your legal issue is one that LAO covers
