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 is a strong advocate for Australia’s Aboriginal population. We acknowledge and respect Aboriginal connections to land and culture, and advocate for access to equal and proper Aboriginal legal services in Melbourne with this in mind.
We regularly receive client referrals from the Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service and other Aboriginal organisations. 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.
