After a 250km return trip for our lawyers, we know that our clients based in Stawell and Ararat appreciate the visit. With the hospitality of the local Community Health Centres and our laptops we are able to provide the same service as if we were back at the Legal Centre.
The problems and legal issues faced are similar to our Ballarat clients, inclusive of but not limited to family law, family violence, debt matters, consumer law, employment, wills and estates, powers of attorney and infringements.
With the convenience of email correspondence follow up for casework matters make accessibility to our legal services expedient and comprehensive. The appreciation of clients for our effort in making the trip out to see them in person is often made known with big smiles a handshake, followed up with a sincere thank you.

Services are provided on a monthly basis at each prison on a range of matters, for example Power of Attorney, civil debts, divorce, property in marriage or de facto relationships and child contact advice.
