Penelope* was a young woman experiencing mental illness and a severe brain injury as a result of chronic alcoholism and an attempted suicide.
When Penelope met with the volunteer lawyers, she had been sleeping rough and was struggling to manage debts totalling almost $20,000.
LawRight lawyers helped negotiate for almost all the debts to be waived. This helped to make Penelope’s income more stable, and it removed the pressure of being chased for a debt.
Penelope could focus on her personal wellbeing, while she looked for permanent housing.
