Legal Aid funding

Emma Turnbull Lawyers are specialist criminal lawyers who represent clients in some circumstances with Legal Aid Funding.

Our expertise has seen us accepted as a member of Victoria’s Legal Aid exclusive criminal law indictable crime panel.  This means that if you meet their financial tests and your criminal charges meet their merit test, we can assist you via state funding for your case.

What does Legal Aid funding provide:

Victorian Legal Aid can provide you with funding to allow you access to high-quality legal advice.  It is designed to allow representation for people charged with criminal offences who cannot otherwise afford legal assistance.   Legal Aid allows members of the community who are disadvantaged or at risk of social exclusion funding for a private lawyer to represent you in your criminal matter.

If you have a court matter pending and are unsure if you would qualify for Legal Aid, we recommend that your contact our firm and we can advise if you qualify for government funding.
