In approaching a Sydney law firm, common barriers to resolving legal needs often include fears about high costs and difficulty deciding, or knowing, who to seek assistance from amongst the vast array of options. 

The Inquiry Report identified consumer problems and disputes as the largest area of unmet legal need, including problems with: –

  • professional and tradespersons;
  • insurance and banking services;
  • buying faulty goods; and
  • owners corporations.

Another large area of unmet legal need is that of credit and debt where a range of problems and disputes arise out of:-

  • creditors taking or threatening to take action to recover unpaid bills or debts;
  • the repayment of money owed to the respondent;

  • Disputes concerning wills and powers of attorney.
