  • Enquiry only

  • We have limited capacity to take on pro bono legal work because we are a small business

  • We can't promise we will get back to you but will do so if we can help

  • For people thinking: I cannot afford a lawyer but think a disability rights lawyer would want to consider my case

I am not sure which of these apply to me...

 

Treating people with disability differently is against the law. Discrimination laws are there to protect you in a variety of settings, including if you have been denied the opportunity to work, go to school, access services or public places.

A person who does not have ‘mental capacity’ may be subject to guardianship and administration orders. These orders cover accommodation, lifestyle, medical or financial decisions. We can help you to understand and be supported through this process.

It is important that your NDIS Plans includes all reasonable and necessary supports you need. If your Plan does not cover what you need, there are legal avenues that can help. We know this is a time sensitive process because not having the right services can have serious consequences.

Receiving social security payments like the Disability Support Pension is meant to make life easier for people with disabilities. But we know, that is not always the case and issues with debt or eligibility can come up. We can help you work through the process and the complex rules.
