Before your appointment

To make an appointment, you will need to provide your name and the full name of the person who is on the other side of your legal matter. We cannot give you legal advice without it. This is in order for us to check for a potential conflict of interest. If your dispute is with a company or institution, we need that name and the name of an individual if you have been dealing with a specific person over an extended period of time.

What to bring to your appointment:

  • any paperwork you have related to your legal matter
  • a list of questions which you would like the lawyer to answer.

During your appointment

At your appointment, a qualified lawyer will give legal advice, assist you to understand your options and provide a written copy of the advice. Our Social Work Service and an interpreter service are available. Law students may also assist.

Referrals may be provided to Legal Aid Queensland, private solicitors and other appropriate agencies.

Appointments are brief in order to assist as many people as possible.
