We work in Criminal law, Children's Care and Protection law and Family law, and we provide information and referral for Civil law. We also assist with Work and Development Orders and Custody Notification.

We have 23 offices and 187 Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal staff across NSW and ACT determined to get justice for Aboriginal people and the community.
