Temporary Relocation!

Derbyshire Law Centre is temporarily moving offices.  We will be relocating from Monday, 30th January to the Ground Floor of the Town Hall.  Given that this is just upstairs, our contact postal address remains unchanged.  Telephone and email contact details will also remain unchanged.  This is a temporary move for the next 3 months whilst renovation works take place in our offices.  Anyone visiting the new office will have to access via stairs/ramp directly above our existing offices.  A buzzer system will be in place to open the door.  Look out for the new signage.

Annual Report

Derbyshire Law Centre is pleased to announce the completion of this year’s annual report.

It’s been a very busy year and we hope you enjoy the read!


Quality Staff – Guaranteed

Derbyshire Law Centre, once again, shows it’s commitment to quality.  Tony McIlveen, Senior Solicitor, has once again achieved The Law Society Immigration and Asylum Scheme Level 2 Supervisor qualification.  This makes Derbyshire Law Centre the only accredited specialist in immigration advice in Derbyshire (excluding Derby).  Well done Tony!

Radio Tony!

Tony McIlveen, Derbyshire Law Centre’s Senior Solicitor, was interviewed on Spire Radio yesterday.  He gave details of the legal advice services that DLC provides for the people of Derbyshire.  Asked what he thought of the experience, he said “It was a great opportunity for us to tell the public what we do and how we help.  I had a great time and was warmly welcomed by the team at Spire Radio”

Thanks Cameron!

It was a pleasure to see Cameron Philpot yesterday to give our thanks for the work he did with us until his resignation last year.  Cameron was an active member of our Management Committee over 25 years.  He took on the role of Vice Chairman and Secretary several times over the years.  He was also Chair of our Personnel Sub Committee.  Michael Gordon, current Chair of DLC, presented the award, thanking Cameron for his commitment to the organisation.

A Quality Service!

Derbyshire Law Centre is proud at, once again, at achieving Service Quality Mark status.  A thorough audit of all parts of the service was carried out yesterday (1st March) by SQM Delivery Partnership and the organisation passed with flying colours.  Lisa Haythorne, Solicitor at Derbyshire Law Centre said “We are delighted that our quality service has been recognised again and we can continue to provide advice services in Derbyshire”.
