Initial Free Legal Information/Signposting for NAIRO Members

NAIRO are pleased to offer our members a new service whereby a solicitor will provide NAIRO with assistance in relation to their initial legal enquiries in the course of their work.

Caroline Landes Solicitor and Partner in the firm of McMillan Williams Solicitors Limited has agreed to work with NAIRO in this regard.  Caroline has been practising law in the area of family and children for 30 years and is a member of the accreditation scheme for children law at the Law Society. 

Caroline is prepared to assist the members of NAIRO with initial legal enquiries in the course of their IRO work.  This advice will be limited to 20 minutes maximum one off per case initial legal information/signposting by telephone relating only to work undertaken by our members professionally.  

If the matter goes further then funding arrangements will be discussed and will need to be secured.  If you wish to avail yourself of this service then please contact info@nairo.org.uk who will then ask you to complete a form of referral which will be emailed to Caroline and following a conflict check being undertaken Caroline will make contact with you by telephone or email as soon as possible after your enquiry.  If the matter is urgent then please mark you enquiry accordingly. 

Caroline is of course happy to provide IRO’s with legal advice on personal/their own family matters and/or signpost them elsewhere within McMillan Williams Solicitors Limited.  However this advice will need to be funded and does not fall within the ambit of the above scheme.
