Our Financial Abuse Service is an innovative and dynamic statewide practice with a specialist, cross-jurisdictional, and integrated approach that provides holistic legal and non-legal support to clients, increasing their safety and wellbeing and leading to financial independence and empowerment. We employ specialist financial abuse lawyers in the areas of credit, debt and consumer law, family law, company and tax law and immigration law as well as financial counsellors and social workers.

We also drive systemic change through test cases, advocacy and law reform.
