Legal Aid

Legal Aid is a government run service that helps people with their legal problems. In some cases our clients are eligible for funding assistance to help them cover the costs of legal representation. You might be eligible also.

Not all private law firms take on legal aid cases. We do.

We are the third largest provider of legal aid grants of assistance in Victoria.
