Switzerland, you mean?
There is not so much really - but you would have rights protection and get ad vice for "free"-ish

TCS members get free legal advice. They will write letters on your behalf and fight your complaint for you.

Your local council office will assist in providing information, dependent on the nature of your issue. Many departments offer initial advice for free.

Re: Free Legal Advice (Citizens Advisory Bureau)

Some district courts in Zurich offer limited free advice. Usually law students. They know the written law and can provide basic legal information. Ask at your local town hall.

Contact your embassy. They should have some names and places you can go.

Also, contact the local legal bar association, they will able to point you to a citzens advisory bureau. Though its not free, I think its 40CHF.

Lastly, since you seem to be in Vaud, contact the Centre Social Protestant. They have jurists available for free.

If nothing works out send me a pm.
Good luck

Re: Free Legal Advice (Citizens Advisory Bureau)

Very informative, thank you.

For Zurich canton, this is the Zurich Bar Association zav.ch, they provide free legal advice in and around Zurich.

As mentioned in the previous replies, if their help is not enough, you can also ask there (simply call them) if there are any organizations such as "citizens advisory bureau" in Zurich. They should be able to point you in the right direction.
