Many Albertans with criminal charges have difficulties getting in touch us. The reasons vary from not having access to a phone or limited time to remain on hold, disinterest or mental illness, to lack of understanding or inability to retain information about their charges.
Legal Aid Alberta is excited to introduce an alternative way for roster lawyers to get coverage for existing LAA criminal clients without having to call. LAA Client Gateway is a secure online form that lawyers can use to help existing LAA clients apply for additional legal aid coverage.
For roster lawyers with existing criminal clients
No more delays getting new charges covered. No more wondering if your client has been able to call us. Clients don’t have to tell their story to multiple people, only you.
For duty counsel lawyers
Help existing LAA clients on the spot, in just a few minutes, by filling out an online form.
LAA Client Gateway will be available to roster lawyers starting Nov. 7.
