Pro Bono Legal Services
Contact Vin Goldrick
Vin Goldrick is partner in charge of Pro Bono Legal Services at Goldrick Farrell Mullan.
Goldrick Farrell Mullan is registered with the Law Society of New South Wales as a law firm that will provide pro bono legal services. The Law Society encourages its members to undertake pro bono legal services as part of their wider community responsibility as legal practitioners.
Pro bono legal services are those, which involve the exercise of professional legal skills and are provided on a free or substantially reduced fee basis. These services are provided where legal aid is not available for:
people who can demonstrate a need for legal assistance but cannot afford the full cost of a lawyer’s services at the market rate without financial hardship;
non-profit organisations which work on behalf of members of the community who are disadvantaged or marginalised, or which work for the public good;
public interest matters,
being matters of broad community concern, which might not otherwise be pursued; and the improvement of the law or legal system in a manner which benefits marginalised or disadvantaged individuals or groups.
The Law Society’s Pro Bono Scheme coordinates referrals of clients to law firms which are willing to provide legal assistance on a pro bono basis. People wanting pro bono assistance will be asked to complete an Application for Pro Bono Referral and supply relevant information and documentation to the Law Society's Pro Bono Solicitor.
You can contact the Law Society's Pro Bono Scheme directly by telephone 9926 0364 or email email@example.com.
