Eastern Community Legal Centre provides free legal advice and assistance for a range of matters, including:
- Crimes compensation (victims of crime)
- Criminal law
- Debt and civil matters
- Family law
- Family violence matters (including Intervention Orders)
- Motor vehicle accidents – property damage
- Neighbourhood disputes
- Traffic fines.
These areas are subject to our Legal Advice and Casework Guidelines.
We mostly assist people who live in the local government areas of Boroondara, Knox, Manningham, Maroondah, Whitehorse and the Yarra Ranges.
We offer free interpreter services for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) clients. The interpreter’s role is to objectively translate conversations between the lawyer and the client. We prefer to use accredited interpreters to ensure confidentiality and accuracy of the information.
We are committed to preserving client confidentiality and privacy at all times.
