The legal advice initially includes only basic verbal guidance, without preparation of official legal documents. Persons can register for services at pravnaporadna@zask.sk or personally at the ŽSK Office or by calling 041/5032152. Štrba said residents can also consult with a representative from Slovakia’s Ombudsman’s Office every first Thursday but should arrange such a meeting by phoning 02/48287401 or 02/43634906 on weekdays between 8:00 and 16:00. Ombudsman consultations will be available in 2011 on March 3, April 7, May 5, June 2, July 7, August 4, October 6, November 3 and December 1.
