Legal Aid


Smith & Tapper Criminal Lawyers are approved to submit applications for Legal Aid funding. 

To be eligible for legal aid funding you must meet specific criteria concerning your income and the circumstances of your case. 

If you qualify for legal aid funding, your legal fees will be covered by Legal Aid Victoria. We can submit an application for funding on your behalf.

Please be aware that funding guidelines for criminal proceedings are very strict and the final decision regarding Legal Aid approval is not up to us. 

Your eligibility will depend on a number of factors, which are best discussed with one of our criminal lawyers directly. Book a call with us to find out more.
