International Women's Day will be held in many countries around the world on 8 March 2016. The aims of the day include a call to change the circumstances of many women still living in difficult situations and celebrating acts of courage of those who have been in such situations.
Adviceline Injury Lawyers is committed to helping those most vulnerable in our community and the female lawyers in our team volunteer their time to help.
We recognise that domestic violence is a major threat to the safety of women and children.
As part of our firm's national Pro Bono Program, we work in conjunction with the Women's Legal Service through the Magistrates' Court which is designed to help women who are seeking family violence intervention orders as a result of violent domestic situations.
We are proud to be in a position to help women at such a distressing time. We see it as an extension of the work that we do daily helping workers with a personal injury and transport accident victims.
