* Note: Please read the following before contacting QPILCH

In the first instance, if your flood related problem involves insurance and credit and debt issues, please consult Legal Aid Queensland or Caxton Legal Centre. QPILCH may be able to assist in other flood related civil law cases (not criminal or family law) where:

  • you have insufficient means to afford legal services at normal charging rates; and
  • your matter has legal merit.

QPILCH assesses and refers applications for legal assistance to law firms and barristers willing to act on a pro bono or speculative basis.
