Queensland District and Supreme Courts and Court of Appeal

If you have a current or prospective civil matter (not family or criminal) in the Supreme and District Courts of Queensland or the Queensland Court of Appeal, assistance may be available through LawRight’s Court & Tribunal Services. 

The service offers appointments (in person or by telephone) with solicitors who provide advice and assistance with the legal tasks necessary to progress court proceedings, including:

  • advice about whether, and how, to commence or defend proceedings;
  • advice about court and tribunal processes;
  • assistance to draft documents such as applications, statements of claim, defences, affidavits, submissions and court and tribunal forms;
  • assistance with preparing for trial and appearing in court;
  • advice about appealing court and tribunal decisions; and
  • advice about other options for the resolution of disputes.

Who can we help?

The service helps people who are involved in, or who are considering commencing legal proceedings, and who are unable to afford private legal assistance and are ineligible for legal aid.

How can I apply?

To apply, please complete the application form here. If you are unable to complete the online form, contact us to discuss alternative arrangements.

LawRight staff review applications received and contact eligible self-represented parties to arrange an appointment with a solicitor. Currently, appointments will usually occur by telephone. If a telephone appointment would not be suitable for you, you can discuss that with us at the time of booking.

If you are not eligible for assistance, you will be notified of our reasons in writing.

If you are unsure whether you are eligible for assistance, you can call us on (07) 3738 7800 to discuss your legal matter so that we can determine whether you should submit an application for assistance. We will use telephone interpreters when needed. Our lawyers cannot give legal advice over the phone until you have been accepted as a client.
