You will also need to meet other eligibility criteria, like your income, for example. You can find out more information about our eligibility criteria here.

If you have any questions you can contact our teams directly using the numbers below. The same criteria are applied whether you submit an online form or make an enquiry another way.

If you are experiencing homelessness, mental health concerns or are a newly arrived Australian please contact our community partners and they will connect you to us, as appropriate. If you think you are eligible for help but are unable to connect with our community partners, please contact us.

We continue to see clients at the Mater Hospital and Wuchopperen Health Service so please talk to staff there about how to get in touch or call the mobile number if you are an existing client.

If you have any concerns about how LawRight has handled your matter or you wish to acknowledge someone who has been particularly helpful to you, please let us know.

The fastest way to resolve a complaint is to contact the lawyer you have been speaking with. If you are not happy with their response you can ask to speak to their supervisor.

If you have tried this, or are not comfortable making a complaint directly, you can:

  • complete our online form
  • email the Principal Solicitor at admin@lawright.org.au
  • call us on (07) 3846 6317
  • write to the Principal Solicitor at PO Box 12217, George Street Q 4003
