I am wanting to find a lawyer to assist me in advising me about the legal issues of starting up a volunteer program. I need someone who is happy to work with me pro bono as this is a not for profit project

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Victoria

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The project is in early planning stages

Good Afternoon

Your best best is to contact your closest community legal centre.

Here is their link

http://www.communitylaw.org.au/

There is also the probono centre

http://www.probonocentre.org.au/legal-help/not-for-profit-organisation/

Both should be able to assist you with what you want.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon

I can only give you details of parties I know that can assist.

I have used both before for clients setting up charities and they have been very helpful

I will request you get a refund.

All the best and good luck with it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

I have a client who was involved in a forestry scheme and
I have a client who was involved in a forestry scheme and has now received a Filing Confirmation Notice from the County Court of Victoria demanding payment of a loan which he was advised by a legal firm not to pay. He has been given 21 days to pay over $100,000, which he does not have. He was advised by the solicitors in the class action not to pay as they felt that they would be successful in getting the loan from Willmott Finance voided. Annoyingly, he signed up to invest in this project through Willmott Finance who went into receivership within the next 3 months. Surely they would have been aware of their financial position and should not have proceeded with the investments as they were trading insolvent. Many clients now find themselves in a similar situation based on bad advice from these solicitors. They have also had their clients sign waivers to exempt them from legal action if the class action against Willmott Finance and others failed. So what can investors do in these circumstances where they are receiving threatening letters? … read more
