Our legal service provides free legal advice, information, some minor assistance and casework and referrals to low income and disadvantaged people across the South West of Western Australia. We focus on assisting clients who are disadvantaged and cannot otherwise access legal advice, either from a private practitioner, another community agency or through a grant of legal aid.
We offer our services from our main office in Bunbury and through our outreach locations at Busselton, Bridgetown, Collie, Harvey, Margaret River, Manjimup, and Narrogin.
We are a generalist service, providing free preliminary advice on most areas of law, including but not limited to:
Family Law (including parenting arrangements and property settlement)
Criminal Injuries Compensation
Tenancy Matters (not lessors)
In some circumstances, we may be able to assist with the following: Advance Care Planning (e.g. Wills / Power of Attorney), Neighbourhood Issues, Credit and Debt matters and Child Support and Protection matters.
Our outreach program extends across the South West of Western Australia. Our legal team also offer Community Legal Education sessions to interested organisations, community groups and schools.
