These are not recommendations, but merely suggestions. In some cases, I am a member, in others I know of people who are members. However, there are others where I merely know that the organisation exists.

The Law Society help lines provide advice, support and access to pastoral care for solicitors. Some of these help lines can also be contacted online, by e-mail and by fax. Go to the websites for further information.

Please note: These help lines are for solicitors, their staff and (in some cases) their families only and are not available to members of the public.
