Legal Aid - Greigs Legal

Legal Aid

The Legal Aid Commission of New South Wales is a government organisation that provides legal assistance to those who are going to court but do not have the means to pay for a private lawyer.

The Commission has in-house legal aid lawyers and also, in limited cases, assigns matters to private law firms who it pays at a greatly reduced rate.

Greigs Legal are Legal Aid Panel lawyers and can assist with your case if you meet the Legal Aid means test criteria. Whilst we do only receive a fraction of the normal rates charged for legal services, we provide this service as part of our commitment to helping the community.

Means Test

Those who wish to apply for legal aid are required to pass a means test – which assesses their ability to pay for legal services – as well as a merit test – which seeks to determine whether the case is worthy of legal aid funding.

To assess your individual circumstance, click on the following link as a basic guide to assess your eligibility.

Greigs Legal has experience in dealing with the Legal Aid Commission and applying for funding in various matters. If you wish to apply for a Grant of Legal Aid to fund your legal matter, feel free to contact our office to discuss your options. If we feel you meet the criteria we will apply for your funding on your behalf.

What do I Have to Pay?

You will normally have to pay a $75 contribution to the Legal Aid Commission. There are normally no other costs and we do not charge you anything for providing you with legal aid services.

A great experience dealing with Greigs Legal in Gregory Hills. They listened, informed, worked hard and got it right with clarity and without the fluff. They were well priced. I couldn’t be happier to have dealt with this firm.
