Have a 

 legal matter? 

YFS Legal can assist you with advice about the legal system.

We operate Logan’s only community legal centre.

Since 1992, YFS Legal have been there for Logan people of all ages who would otherwise have limited access to legal services.

We specialise in criminal matters for young people and general legal advice.

What legal matters can YFS Legal help with?

  • Recently separated and you don’t know where to start with the family law system?
  • Has someone bumped into your car?
  • Are you having a dispute with a neighbour about a fence or tree?
  • Are you thinking about taking out a domestic violence order?
  • Have you been ripped off? 
  • Or maybe someone owes you money.

YFS Legal might be able to assist you with advice about the legal system.

Our team of solicitors provides free one-off appointments on family, civil, and criminal law matters Monday to Friday during business hours.

We also offer appointments at YFS’ office at Jimboomba and at the Centre for Women.

If after hours work better for you, make an appointment for our evening clinic at Slacks Creek. It’s when our colleagues from law firms join us.

There are certain areas of law we cannot assist with, such as personal injury, business matters and advice to landlords.

To talk to a solicitor, you need to make an appointment. Call us on 3826 1500.

But before you do that, take a look at our legal information materials.

Please note this is legal information only. If you require more information, please contact YFS to book an appointment.
