Legal advice can be provided under Spanish law free of charge for people on low incomes if they are facing a legal process or think they wish to start one. It is also offered in certain situations regardless of income, such as domestic violence, workplace contract disputes and others. In the first instance ask for an appointment in person for an initial free assessment of your issue, as part of the ‘Servicio de Orientación Jurídica’ (SOJ) (Judicial Guidance Service) or visit your nearest centre. See the weblink below for a general explanation of the SOJ in Spain and how to find your nearest centre.
For the area of Murcia there are three local ‘Colegios de Abogados’ (Bar/Lawyers Associations) offering this service; in Murcia city, Cartagena and Lorca. On the weblink below click for a fuller explanation of this service. That link also has another link to a map of Spain where you can find the Murcia Region. Click on the centre nearest to you on the map of Murcia and the web details of that Colegio will pop up. It is advisable to go with a Spanish speaker if required.
