Main Street Legal is a well established and successful firm of Upper Hutt lawyers. Originally established in 1992 by John Gwilliam we have since then been providing a full general legal practice with special strengths in Litigation, Trusts, Family, and Criminal work. In 2009 John Gwilliam incorporated his Firm to become John Gwilliam & Co Limited and in 2011 Fiona Butland became a Director and Partner in the Firm. In August 2013 the Firm changed its name to Main Street Legal.
As your local lawyers our mission is to provide easy access to legal services for members of the community. One way we do this is by running a free weekly legal advice clinic on Wednesday afternoons from 12.30pm until 2pm. We also undertake work on legal aid.
Our aim is to demystify the law and lawyers and give advice on what is troubling people. We can then offer our clients further ways in which they can help themselves or they can decide to seek our help professionally.
We are Upper Hutt lawyers and can work with you to provide the professional legal support and advice you need to get you through the tough times and to help you obtain your personal and professional goals.
Due the uncertainty around Covid-19 we advise that our Free Legal Advice Clinic is suspended until further notice, we apologise for any inconvenience.
