Personal legal issues
The VLRC does not give legal advice to individuals on points of law or individual cases, nor do we investigate complaints about the law or about lawyers.
Refer to Victoria Legal Aid’s Find Legal Answers page for help with common legal problems or to find a legal service.
If you need advice about common disputes such as fencing, trees, and noisy neighbours, you can find useful information on the website of the Dispute Settlement Centre of Victoria.
The Victims Legal Service, Victoria Legal Aid provides free legal advice and support to people who have suffered injury or loss because of a crime and need help to:
– get financial assistance through the Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal
– get compensation from the person who committed the crime.
If you wish to make a complaint against a lawyer you can contact the Legal Services Commissioner.
