New community legal service ADA Law will be officially launched next week.
ADA Australia’s human rights advocacy service is now operating as ADA Law, a registered community legal service providing legal advice and representation in addition to advocacy services for guardianship and administration matters.
It aims to support adults whose capacity is in question or who have a cognitive impairment when they are seeking to review, change, or revoke decision makers appointed by the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal, enduring powers of attorney or advance health directives.
It can also support those who need support to work with their existing decision makers, as well as clients appearing at Mental Health Review Tribunal hearings for ECT applications.
ADA Law, which is under the direction of Principal Solicitor Karen Williams, is available to support people receiving aged care and experiencing elder abuse, either by a family member, service provider, or attorney.
