As qualified defence lawyers with over 25 years working in the Children’s Courts, we always act in the best interests of children.
We help protect vulnerable children and families in the community, including indigenous and vulnerable family backgrounds.
Our legal team provides comprehensive legal representation for all members of the community, including the underprivileged and underrepresented. In line with this commitment, we strive to ensure equal and fair access to quality legal services for every person in Victoria. We’re particularly mindful of the unique needs of the Aboriginal community, as we hold deep respect for their connections to land and culture.
All our employees have undergone Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Training with the Koori Heritage Trust and have a strong commitment to advocating for the Aboriginal people of Victoria.
Since we are predominately a legal aid-focused law firm, most of our clients fund our legal representation through Victoria Legal Aid.
Our experienced administrative team are trained to assess each client’s eligibility for legal aid on the spot; we can then process applications immediately via our direct portal with Victoria Legal Aid.
