"Give and You Shall Receive" - Free Legal Advice Week to Benefit CFAI

07 August 2009

Have you a legal query? Now there is an answer... Malcomson Law is offering an exclusive service of free legal advice for one week in aid of The Cystic Fibrosis Association of Ireland (CFAI) from Monday 17th to Friday 21st August.

By donating just €20 to CFAI's "Buy a Brick" Campaign through Malcomson Law, you will receive a telephone consultation from a qualified Solicitor providing you with free legal advice. Following the initial telephone consultation you will receive a letter with the advice you have been given.

Earlier this year the CFAI launched their "Buy a Brick" campaign which is a major National Campaign to fundraise for dedicated CF units throughout the country.   The campaign plans to raise over €2.5million to ensure that young people living with CF have dedicated CF units in their regions, taking pressure off the major CF centres in Dublin. 

It is now a well known fact that Ireland has the highest prevalence and the most severe types of Cystic Fibrosis in the World, yet we have some of the poorest resources for Cystic Fibrosis Patients in Europe.  The "Buy a Brick" Campaign plans to reverse this unacceptable and shameful situation, ensuring that CF patients' hospital stays are safer and shorter, through isolated and dedicated units and that they live much better quality lives without having to fear attending hospital when they are unwell or on scheduled check-ups.

Philip Watt, CEO of CFAI said "We should be world leaders in CF facilities and treatment, but we seriously lag behind everyone else.  We now need to take matters into our own hands to protect the lives of our young CF people.  Cuts are being made throughout the country and to the Health Service, but we need to ensure that our young people living with CF are given the proper hospital facilities they require, which is a basic human right. Fundraising is critical at this time and we know with the help and generosity of Malcomson Law, the Free Legal Advice Week will go on to help us achieve our objective brick-by-brick".

Malcomson Law are asking people to donate for actual bricks and mortar to build these dedicated units throughout the country and in return they will receive free legal advice. Raymond Bradley, Managing Partner at Malcomson Law said "We were looking for an innovative way to give something back to the community, and the idea of a Free Legal Advice Week does just that. By making a small donation of just €20 to CFAI's "Buy a Brick" campaign people will receive legal advice that may help their situation, and at the same time assist with fundraising for a worthy cause. From 17th to 21st August we can offer advice on a number of areas including Health; Family; Commercial, Litigation; and Property & Conveyancing Law."

Free Legal Advice Week runs from Monday 17th to Friday 21st August; and donations can be made using Visa, Mastercard or Maestro. For your free legal advice call Malcomson Law on 01 8289966.
