The LawCare support service is for those who work in the legal profession including support staff and concerned family members, we do not offer legal advice to the general public. If you need legal advice The Law Society of England & Wales, Law Society of Scotland or The Law Society of Northern Ireland can help you identify a solicitor close to where you live. You can also contact the Citizens Advice Bureau, or search for your nearest Legal Advice Centre online.
Counsellor, Therapist, or other Mental Health Professional?
We appreciate that many mental health professionals have expertise and experience with lawyers or may have practiced law in the past and want to be involved in LawCare's work. However, LawCare does not keep a list of counsellors and we do not make direct referrals. Neither do we promote commercial enterprises, such as paid workshops or inhouse treatment units.
"I am a legal professional, I contacted your helpline and I was absolutely blown away by how much your adviser helped me. My partner could not understand the anxiety I was feeling but your adviser understood immediately, having been a legal professional."
