Wiltshire firm Bonallack and Bishop have provided free legal advice for 10,000 people

Bonallack and Bishop have been running a free drop-in surgery every Tuesday evening in Salisbury since June 2001. The initiative has expanded since then at the firm’s Amesbury office to provide a specialist family law drop-in surgery every Wednesday afternoon. Senior Partner, Tim Bishop, commented: “I’m really proud of our amazingly successful two legal surgeries – the only long-running legal advice surgeries of the type in Wiltshire. It’s incredible that we have assisted so many people with a huge variety of legal problems from dangerous dogs to divorce, and consumer complaints to compensation claims. Apart from Christmas and Easter, I believe we have only cancelled one surgery in around 17 years. That’s a massive personal commitment from our team and a huge number of people who have come along. The surgeries have proved particularly popular amongst the working population in both Salisbury and Amesbury and throughout Wiltshire – people who can struggle to see a solicitor if they work Monday to Friday, 9 to 5.
