Helene says:

”A single conversation can make a world of difference for the wellbeing of the individual. Problems in your private life can have a big impact on your life as a student and on your general wellbeing. Many people refrain from contacting a lawyer because it is expensive or because they have heard that lawyers are formal types of people who you do not quite understand. However, you are always welcome to write or call me or to book an appointment. I always advice and guide at eye level and at a compassionate level and not least in an understandable language. I take pride in making a difference for the people I meet on my way”.
