Hundreds of lawyers from across the state will next week begin providing free legal advice to flood-affected Queenslanders trying to get their lives back on track.
Attorney-General Cameron Dick today praised the work of the legal profession and key community groups which had come together to establish Flood Legal Help, a service specifically offered to flood-affected Queenslanders.
“Legal practices large and small, including many from flood-affected areas, are making solicitors available on a pro bono basis to help people affected by the floods,” Mr Dick said.
“Legal practitioners will be available for free consultations for flood victims in communities including Brisbane, Ipswich, Toowoomba, Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Chinchilla and Emerald.”
Mr Dick said anyone who had been affected by floods could contact Flood Legal Help on 1300 65 11 88 for legal advice over the phone or to arrange a face-to-face consultation.
Alternatively, consultations could be arranged at any of the government’s numerous community recovery centres.
“It is important for people affected to obtain legal advice and information on issues that affect them such as insurance claims, tenancy agreements, employment, credit, debt, fencing and family law,” Mr Dick said.
“I am pleased that the Queensland legal community has banded together to provide this much-needed and essential service during such emotional and hard times.”
