Jo was being unfairly treated at work. She could not afford the risk of paying for a lawyer, did not get legal aid and she had not been able to see community law and was embarrassed to even ask – she tried to cope, did not get help/justice and problems built up. Our Not for Profit accessible legal service fills the justice gap. We do this by helping people pay what they can afford and guiding people holistically through the services they need.
Marama, like so many small business owners, was juggling all the normal pressures with the impacts of COVID-19 on cash-flow, staff and customers. In all the noise, she missed the steps she needed to follow to manage departing staff and now, with the extra pressure of a claim, is struggling to find the time or money to put things right. That's where Legal Plus' accessibility and flexibility can help.
Paul's team were normally great - focused, productive, supporting and safe. But occasionally staff's private legal issues distracted them. Not dealt with - because lawyers are hard to see in work hours or simply cost too much - issues festered impacting productivity, wellbeing, work relationships and safety. Legal Plus' employee support programme addresses issues early, helping make Paul's business stand out as an employer of choice.
Hemi and Jo were behind in the rent. It was fast escalating to very bad news for the whole Whānau. And if they lost the home, who knows what would be next. But afraid of legal bills and unable to get legal aid, they just hoped somehow things would come right. Some affordable legal advice, and guidance to those ready to help them with their budget, can go along way!
Rose had to attend court, with no idea how the court, lawyers or anything worked. What's more with young kids to get to/ from school and a job with no flexibility, Rose did not know how to juggle anything. When court day came, she was late with no-one to help with the kids - and, now in even more trouble, was not going to be around to pick them up. It is a time when you need understanding, help and guidance to those who can support you. And that is what Legal Plus is about.
"Caroline quickly responded to my initial contact, reassuring me that she was able to help make a plan to get through the stressful situation I was in and take the pressure and worry from me . She has excellent communication, prompt responses, quickly sorted the problem and was super friendly and helpful!"
"Thank you once again Legal + for caring for the community in providing such services at affordable costs."
