Historical & Institutional Sexual Abuse

  • Quill Legal offers a trusted and dedicated service to those who have been affected from an injury caused by another. Regardless of where you are located in Australia, we are both willing and able to help you.

At Quill Legal we understand the sensitive nature of these claims. This is why we have a trusted and dedicated team who will treat you with empathy and be there with you every step of the way.

We take an informal approach by ensuring that we facilitate a fair, just and reasonable outcome for our client with minimal stress and time. Approximately 95% of our claims resolve via alternative dispute resolution methods, without recourse to litigation and court proceedings. Our aim is to achieve a financial resolution, and to receive an acknowledge and apology from the organisation, which essentially reflects the notion of justice, along with a personal apology to you.

What will it cost?

We offer our clients a “no win, no fee” arrangement. Therefore, we do not charge you any legal fees until the successful resolution of your claim.
