Local Legal Service Demand Grows


Local demand for legal services have increased, with over 40 legal advice services have been provided out of the Riverland Community Justice Centre in Berri since it's reopening by the state government in December.

Attorney-General, Vickie Chapman said these numbers prove how much the local Riverland Community relied on this service before the previous Government shut it down.

Member for Chaffey, Tim Whetstone said these increases in services prove just how much this Centre is needed and that residents in his electorate and surrounds will no longer have to conduct these services over the phone or drive all the way to Christies Beach to have a face-to-face meeting.
