Legal Advice

Legal Advice is available for live aboard boaters, from the Community Law Partnership. Community Law Partnership have set up their own Telephone Advice Line for live aboard boaters throughout England and Wales on 0121 685 8677. 

The helpline is available Monday to Friday, 9.00 am to 5.00 pm and there is an emergency service available outside of those hours. Community Law partnership provides advice, assistance and representation on ‘accommodation issues’ for boaters. e.g. evictions.

The Community Law Partnership (CLP) is a radical, progressive firm of solicitors specialising in the law relating to Housing and Public Law. CLP incorporates the Travellers Advice Team (TAT) – a ground-breaking nationwide 24 hour advice service for Gypsies and Travellers. 

The The Community Law Partnership was formed in 1999 by its current Partners: Chris Johnson, Rosaleen Kilbane and Mike McIlvaney. We aim to provide quality legal services to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged sections of society who, without our assistance, would be denied access to the legal system and to their rights. We aim to give a personal, expert, efficient and friendly service to our clients.

In addition to the Partners, the firm employs solicitors and highly trained and experienced case-workers. It also takes great pride in its trainee development programme, whereby young graduate lawyers are given the training, guidance and hands-on opportunities to develop into experienced professionals. This legal team is ably supported by an administrative staff of thirteen. Our clients come from a wide range of cultures and ethnicities and our team reflects this rich diversity.

We have a highly successful track-record, often in ground-breaking cases. We were finalists for the Legal Aid Law Firm of the Year Award 2011. In 2012, Rosaleen Kilbane won the Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Award in the social and welfare law category and the practice was judged Law Firm of the Year (sole practitioners and firms up to four partners) by Birmingham Law Society. 

The Community Law Partnership are ranked in Chambers directory 2014 which says "they're really innovative and take important challenges forward - a really, really dedicated outfit" and "they're so focused and have a stellar reputation."  If you would like to view endorsements of the quality of our work from fellow professionals, or the level of client satisfaction from our clients themselves, please follow the links on the website below.
