Legal Advice and Referral Service

Suncoast Community Legal Service offers free legal advice and referral services to Sunshine Coast residents at Maroochydore, Caloundra, Landsborough, Maleny, Nambour, Noosaville and Pomona. You can access our Law Firm Referrals list here.

As a generalist service we target the financially disadvantaged, children and young people, Indigenous Australians, older people, domestic violence victims, people at risk of homelessness, single parents, culturally and linguistically diverse people, and refugees and migrants.

Suncoast Community Legal Service provides advice on a wide range of issues including crime, employment law, debts, consumer complaints, discrimination, residential tenancies, elder law, domestic violence, family law, child safety, and neighbour disputes.

The Service is not means tested, but aims to assist people who are disadvantaged or who cannot afford legal advice.  Clients are asked to consider making a $5 or $10 donation.  As a not-for-profit organisation, this greatly assists our operating costs.

Most advice sessions are for a duration of 15 to 20 minutes and are booked with a staff lawyer or a volunteer lawyer.

Bookings are essential.  Please call 07 5376 7800 to make an appointment or complete the online booking form here.
