A life of trauma

Teenager Therese* is on a disability support pension with borderline personality and post traumatic stress disorders. She was removed from her family as a chilld and complained to LawRight about emotional and physical abuse while she was in the care of the Department of Child Safety (the Department). 
After a request from LawRight, Shine Lawyers helped Therese avoid a stressful trial and negotiate a significant settlement from the Department.
