Legal Help Providers

There are numerous legal help providers in Estonia – all law offices are accredited and the quality of their services is high. In addition to private lawyers, state legal aid is also available for those living in Estonia with a residence permit.

State legal aid

State legal aid means that a lawyer appointed by the Estonian Bar Association will represent and provide counsel to you if you participate in legal proceedings (criminal proceedings, misdemeanour proceedings, civil proceedings, administrative court proceedings, administrative proceedings, enforcement proceedings).

In addition to the proceedings conducted by an Estonian court or an administrative authority, Estonian residents also have the right to apply for state legal aid (including translation assistance) in connection with proceedings regarding a civil matter in a court of another member state of the European Union, and for having recourse to the European Court of Human Rights.

To see if you are entitled for state legal aid, please see the criteria.
