In cases with special needs or complexity, Legal Aid WA can pay for a lawyer to do ongoing work on your legal problem. The lawyer will either be one of our employees, or will be a lawyer in private practice.
To get a lawyer to run your case, you need to apply for a grant of aid. You could be asked to contribute towards the cost of providing a lawyer.
If you are unhappy with a decision about a grant of aid, including having an application rejected or grant of aid terminated, you might be able to ask us to reconsider or review the matter.
