About Us
"Our model of legal support makes us stand out from the rest - we care about our clients’ situations and will help them as much as we can, through our free or affordable services."
Our Services
"One of the greatest challenges to accessing specialist legal advice is that people don’t always recognise that their problem has a legal resolution. Providing people with specialist legal advice quickly so that we can support them to resolve their problem remains a priority for us."

We deliver high-quality legal services

Welcome to the North East Law Centre - Delivering specialist advice across the North East of England.

The North East Law Centre offers a completely different model of legal service, both free and paid services, to those living and working across the North East. The Centre is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that provides specialist legal advice in the following areas: family, education, immigration, discrimination and employment. Our highly skilled team includes solicitors, legal advisers, caseworkers, office and project support. However, this team has a difference - the team cares about getting justice for those it represents.

Coronavirus Update – Face to Face Advice Suspended

We have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend all our weekly outreach and face to face advice sessions until further notice. We will continue to provide advice and support via telephone, email and Skype (where appropriate).  

We aim to review the situation in line with government directives and will update this website and our social media pages at regular intervals.  Our telephone lines are open from 9.30am to 4.30pm daily. Please call our main number 0191 2304777 or 07947 785 008 during busy periods.  For after hour emergencies, please call 07845127473.  Additional information on how you can contact us can be found on this website.

Wishing all of our clients and partners good health during this difficult time.
