Volunteering for Women’s Legal Service Queensland

McLaughlins family lawyers, Sophie Pearson and Joelene Nel, both volunteer for the Women’s Legal Service Queensland. They give their time to provide free legal advice to vulnerable woman who are victims of domestic violence in Queensland and help them make safe decisions after their relationship breakdown.

Sophie and Joelene provide their volunteering services through the remote volunteering service where appointments are booked and then the lawyers give telephone advice. This means they can give free legal advice to help woman in crisis, wherever they may be located in Queensland.

Sophie and Joelene are proud to be a part of this new initiative by Women’s Legal Service Qld, which is a growing service and gaining considerable interest from other community legal centres and government departments.

In Australia 1 in 4 women have experienced emotional abuse by a current or former partner since the age of 15, McLaughlins lawyer realise this is a serious issue and why we support Women’s Legal Service Queensland.
