Melissa Fritz will work on the private firm’s advice and casework matters, while Nicole Manning will handle the evening casework matters.
Ms Fritz brings a wealth of experience to her new role, having practised in family law for 25 years. She has spent the past nine years volunteering for WLSQ.
Ms Manning joins the firm from Legal Aid Queensland’s first advice contact team and brings with her extensive experience advising vulnerable clients on family law, domestic violence and child protection matters.
WLSQ acting coordinator Angela Lynch said the new appointments will see more of Queensland’s most in need able to access vital free legal assistance.
“We want to see a community safe from violence,” she said, “one in which everyone receives a fair and just outcome from legal and social welfare systems. These changes are a step towards this.”
