What is the Duty Lawyer Service?

The Duty Lawyer Service offers free legal advice and one-off representation to people involved in matters being heard in the Brisbane Registry of the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT), where that matter has been caused or aggravated by family violence.

How does the service operate?

Where a matter has been caused or aggravated by your experience of family violence, the Duty Lawyer Service can assist:

  • on the day (drop-in) with tenancy and minor debt hearings, and child protection or blue card directions hearings on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings
  • by arrangement with other types of matters, compulsory conferences and hearings outside of drop-in times. Assistance outside of drop-in times is subject to the availability of a volunteer barrister or solicitor to assist.
