Seeking advice

Seeking advice

Sometimes people try to post comments in which they seek specific legal advice from me. I reject those posts.

The Australian Gay and Lesbian Law Blog is for the provision of general advice about related issues and not specific advice. Amongst other things, if you post a comment about your case, you could run foul of several secrecy laws, as well as revealing confidential information about yourself that you do not want the whole world to see.

If you want specific advice from me, then phone me on 617 3221 9544 or email me at If your inquiry is within my area of expertise, I will repsond. If not, I will attempt to refer you on to someone who can help.
