Legal Services

About us

We are a team of skilled and empathetic lawyers who provide advice and assistance.

We appreciate that many people who need our legal assistance often have other pressing non-legal needs. Many are managing other complicated issues in their lives. Because we are fully owned by The Salvation Army we often connect clients with other Army pastoral and social services such as addiction recovery, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander programs, youth support programs,  accommodation and homelessness services, Employment Plus and Moneycare.

We can provide you with free legal services in the following areas:

  • Police matters
  • Family & children’s law
  • Migration & refugee law
  • Human rights & public interest law
  • Credit & debt
  • Housing law
  • Social security law
