Legal

Who Are We?

Our legal team is committed to providing the community with a broad range of legal services, which are delivered in diverse, innovative and collaborative ways.

Our solicitors provide free advice, information and referrals to ALL residents and service providers in the Macarthur region of NSW, and targeted legal assistance to people on low incomes, and those experiencing significant disadvantage.

In addition to our regular legal services we deliver community legal education workshops to community groups and service providers, and conduct law reform activities to help redress systemic injustices that impact on our clients.

Free Legal Advice

Our solicitors run free legal advice sessions, twice weekly:

Tuesdays (6:00 pm – 8:00 pm)
Thursday (2:30 pm – 5:00pm)

You can call us on (02) 4628 2042, during these times, for telephone advice.

If you’d prefer a face-to-face session, you just need to call us in advance to book an appointment.

If you require urgent legal advice and/or assistance please call our office to discuss your matter. We may be able to help or refer you to someone who can.

Legal Casework Services

While we provide free legal information, advice and referrals to all residents and service providers, our casework services are targeted at low income earners and disadvantaged clients.

If you meet our eligibility criteria our solicitors may be able to assist with ongoing casework.  Our in-house solicitors will discuss your casework needs and eligibility, when you attend for advice.

Legal Outreach Services

We believe that it’s important to be a part of the community we service, so our solicitors also provide face-to-face legal advice sessions at various outreach locations throughout the Macarthur region. If you’d like a face-to-face session, but can’t make it to our centre in Campbelltown, you can contact the outreach centre of your choice, to make an appointment.  Find out more about our outreach services…

Community Legal Education

We believe that an informed community is a strong community. We provide free legal education workshops to community groups and/or workers. We cover a wide range of legal topics and we can tailor our sessions to meet the needs of your group. Common topics include – family law, elder law issues, employment issues, credit and debt, fines and work development orders, schooling issues, bullying.  Find out more about community legal education…

Law Reform

We aim to utilise both legal and political process to promote an agenda of social justice, and to work towards fairer legal and social outcomes for the most disadvantaged members of our community.   We often prepare submissions, in response to government inquiries and we also participate in advocacy activities undertaken by national and state community legal centre networks in the areas of domestic violence, care and protection, family law, youth law and elder law.
