Lismore office closes EDO NSW

Lismore office closes

The EDO NSW Lismore office is closing this week.

12 April 2018

Effective continued service provision to the Northern Rivers region remains of paramount important to the EDO. Many of our Northern Rivers clients already work with Sydney-based lawyers and have built deep relationships over time. We have also been providing services to the NR community through our extensive outreach program. Director of Outreach, Jemilah Hallinan, and CEO David Morris were in Lismore this week to deliver a workshop on the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage bill, as well as to mark the closure of the office.

We continue to run our free telephone advice service which includes a free call number so that no one incurs additional costs in seeking advice.

Current host, the Northern Rivers Community Legal Centre, has agreed that EDO NSW will be able to ‘hot-desk’ at their office in future when work in the Northern Rivers demands the local presence of a solicitor.

Members of the community can contact the EDO at any time via the hotline on 1800 626 239.
