That’s why we provide free or reduced-cost legal representation and assistance to people who do not qualify for Legal Aid and who cannot reasonably afford a private lawyer.
We support people to navigate the legal system, understand their rights and make informed choices to improve their situation.
Who can access this support?
We mainly provide legal assistance and representation to people who:
- do not qualify for Legal Aid and cannot afford a private lawyer
- live or work in Liverpool, Fairfield and Canterbury Bankstown local government areas. If you are out of these areas and can’t get help anywhere else, we may be able to assist you.
If you live or work in the Greater Western Sydney region and have a legal problem related to employment, driving offence or criminal matter, we may be able to provide you with legal assistance and representation.
Are these services free?
We do not usually charge clients a fee for our services. When we talk with you, we will ask you about your situation because we aim to provide services to people who are financially disadvantaged. Sometimes we will charge costs like a court fee or the cost of obtaining a report to help you access your rights.
