What if I need an interpreter?

If English is not your best language, we book interpreters so you can get help in your language.  We can use Auslan interpreters and relay services if you have difficulty speaking or hearing.

What if I am in prison?

We have a number of services to help people who are in prison

Do we see everyone who wants help?

How much we can assist you will depend on your personal situation, your legal problem, and our resources. Some of our services are prioritised to help disadvantaged and vulnerable people.

We try to help as many people as possible, but do not give advice on every legal issue.

What if Legal Aid WA cannot help me?

If we cannot help, we will do our best to point you in the direction of someone else who might be able to help.
