Free Legal Advice

About the Rechtswinkel Amsterdam

The Rechtswinkel in Amsterdam has provided the people of Amsterdam with free legal advice since 1972. This is due to the combined efforts of 32 enthusiastic law students, who give their time free of charge whilst studying at university.

We provide advice over the telephone, but it is also possible to walk-in to our office during opening hours. We will try and solve your problem immediately and if we cannot, we will refer you to an organisation which is better qualified to deal with your query. We can also refer you to a lawyer should you need one. If a query is deemed by us to be appropriate for follow up, we can represent you both inside and outside of the court room.

We cannot assist you in matters which involve a large financial risk and we can’t take on any queries that have an urgent response time as part of their criteria. Our employees have extensive training so you will receive answers for many of your questions at our office.
We are specialised in the following areas of law: Labour law, Company law, Consumer law, Rental law, Personal and Family law as well as Social Security
Law. We don’t make appointments and we don’t give recommendations by email or make house calls.
