Since opening in 1984, our team of fully qualified lawyers has provided front line services to the entire Gold Coast region free of charge. Our priority is to assist the most vulnerable and disadvantaged residents in a range of legal areas including family law, domestic violence, consumer issues, minor civil claims, motor vehicle accidents, neighbour disputes and minor criminal matters.
Our main office is located centrally in Southport. We also provide legal services at offices located in the Southern and Northern ends of the Gold Coast. Legal advice and assistance is available Monday to Friday between 8:30am and 4pm by appointment and at our Night Clinic on Tuesday evenings from 5pm. To book an appointment, please call 07 5532 9611 or request a call back online.
“It has been said before that people who come to agencies such as ours need to be dealt with as individuals rather than cases or category numbers – they need to be accepted as people of worth and dignity regardless of their weaknesses, faults and failures – they need to make their own choices and decisions – they need to be helped, not told what to do – they need to feel confidential information about themselves will be kept as private as possible – they do not want the world to know their problems. In short, they have the right to expect to meet skilled people providing a quality service to them and to the community.”
