Welcome to St James’s Church Legal Advice Centre (incorporating Coppetts & Colney Legal Advice Centre)

What we do

We offer free legal advice on anything other than criminal proceedings.

We can also provide access to mediation services.

We do not hold practicing certificates so cannot do advocacy in court or work reserved to the legal profession, but will do what we can within our competence to assist people in difficulty. Our main focus is on solving legal problems but we also provide general advice and assistance with debt management, issues with neighbours, unacceptable behaviour at work and so on. Our mission is to raise the burden of legal worry from those who are oppressed by it.

Who we are

Peter Thompson QC heads up the Legal Advice Centre, and is assisted by a team of volunteer solicitor and barrister legal advisers.

Face to face appointments and remote advice

We normally provide free in person services operating from St James’s Church Muswell Hill and The Salvation Army Wood Green. Our Coppetts & Colney Legal Advice Centre operates from Wilton Road Community Church. All clinics have wheel chair access.

Current restrictions mean that for the time being we’re restricted to operating on an appointment basis. If unable to attend after appointment is given, please contact us at least 24 hrs before to cancel, so that another client can attend instead.

We also provide advice by email and phone. If you’d like us to provide advice in this way, please get in contact using the details below, providing a brief outline of the problem you are facing.
