We provide legal representation and assistance to eligible individuals who do not qualify for Legal Aid and who cannot reasonably afford a private lawyer. Depending upon the type of matter and nature of assistance, you may be requested to pay a small financial contribution or fees to help us meet the expenses associated with our assistance. This helps us keep our doors open to continue providing accessible legal services.
Whether legal representation or assistance is provided and the nature and extent of legal representation or assistance is subject to our available resources and priority ranking for your situation.
Whilst legal assistance and representation is primarily for individuals who 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.
NOTE: For employment, driving offence and criminal matters, legal assistance and representation is provided for people who live or work in the Greater Western Sydney region (provided it is practical to do so).
