Offices temporarily closed to the public – but online and telephone legal services to continue

At this crucial time, we are listening to SA Health and taking into account the advice of medical experts. With that in mind, we are temporarily closing our offices to the public.

It’s a difficult but necessary step to protect the health of our clients and staff – but it will not stop us providing legal assistance to the SA community.


Telephone and online assistance

If you are a current client of one of our lawyers, your appointments will be via telephone or video (unless we advise otherwise).

If you have a general legal enquiry, call our free Legal Help Line on 1300 366 424 on workdays between 9am and 4.30pm.

If your issue is not urgent, visit us online at for general legal information and resources. To chat online with our lawyers during business hours, click the Legal Chat icon.

You can also find answers to a range of common legal questions by using our 24Legal service and our Law Handbook online.


Service changes

As with all justice sector agencies, we are striving to continue providing vital support to the community, courts and the legal profession during this challenging time. 

  • All duty lawyer client interviews, both in criminal law and family law, will be delivered via phone or video.
  • Client interviews,  including care & protection interviews, will be conducted by phone or audio visual links (unless there are exceptional circumstances).
  • Family Dispute Resolution Conferences will be conducted by telephone. 

We appreciate your patience during this period and we apologise for any inconvenience.
