FREE LEGAL ASSISTANS

Free service with the aim of providing support to all citizens who, in this troubled period of high legislative production and corresponding difficulty of interpretation, seek an answer to your legal questions.

Support works as follows:

– The Citizen sends their question through a form available on the OSAE portal, accessible here (https://form.jotformeu.com/200892871553360);

– OSAE distributes the issue to one of the registered members (at random);

– The question is answered by an associate;

– The Citizen receives an answer through email.
