Pro Bono Lawyers - NOT in CH?
 
Is it true that there are no 'real' probono lawyers in Switzerland? Only legal assistance/work done at a reduced fee?

Does anyone know anything about this?

Or better still, if anyone knows a probono lawyer in CH? :msngrin:

No pro-bono, but my wife hasn't been paying her lawyer for the past 15 years! :eek:

(he knows he'll get paid in the end)

There are no "pro bono lawyers" in Switzerland for the simple reason that there is "legal aid" available:
- for civil cases ( http://www.admin.ch/ch/e/rs/272/a117.html)
- for criminal cases ( http://www.admin.ch/ch/e/rs/312_0/a135.html)

Oh I don't know, the prof Morgeli seemed to find one, more or less :D
