Low-cost legal service expanded in Midland

THE Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) in Midland is expanding its low-cost legal service.

The bureau will now offer advice on personal injury claims, criminal law and neighbourhood disputes like overhanging branches, encroaching roots and barking dogs.

The service will be alongside the legal service already offered by CAB, including advice on wills, enduring powers of attorney and guardianship, family law, probate, Letters of Administration and preparation of some legal documents.

CAB is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that connects people with information and services so they can make independent and informed decisions.

“I’m delighted to be able to increase the number of appointments on offer to the Midland community,” chief executive Kathryn Lawrence said.

“There’s already a strong demand for our legal service and we’ve been able to respond to feedback from our clients to extend the areas of legal advice that we can offer.

“We also have a Justice of the Peace service in the branch, can offer help completing applications for the WA No Interest Loan Scheme and can provide information and referral on a wide range of issues.”

Appointments can be made by calling 9274 3000.
