Abuse Law

Coming to terms with emotional, physical, or sexual abuse can be an incredibly difficult process. While no amount of money can take away the pain the abuse may have caused, compensation may be available to help you access the care and support services you need.


Due to restrictions in Queensland (QLD) and Western Australia (WA) we are prohibited from showing people in those states certain information regarding our legal services. If you are located in QLD or WA please click here for information on abuse law.

We have a dedicated team of abuse claim experts who collectively possess over 90 years of experience in abuse law. Our lawyers specialise in providing legal advice and guidance to survivors of abuse, standing as a voice for clients, and helping them access justice and acknowledgement for the wrongdoing they have suffered.

To ensure every abuse survivor is supported and provided with compassionate and competent legal representation the team is comprised of carefully selected members, all of whom are trained in trauma awareness. Read more about our team of abuse law experts in the FAQs below.

Legal support and service

With a strong understanding of the fragile state many abuse survivors are in, our lawyers recognise the importance of ensuring all litigation is run in a respectful and empathetic manner. Wherever possible, we endeavour to find alternatives to the stress and expense of traditional litigation and explore methods of resolving claims that are more sensitive to the specific needs of our clients.

It's our belief that everyone has the right to stand up against injustice regardless of their financial situation. That's why we offer to work for you on a No Win No Fee* basis. You won’t pay any legal fees unless we are successful in getting you compensation.
