Welcome to Defence and Veterans Legal Service

Free, independent legal support to share your experiences with the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide

We give free legal support

We are a free national service that provides independent information and legal advice to support Australian Defence Force personnel and veterans, as well as their families, carers and supporters, to safely share their experiences with the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide.

We are independent and separate from the Royal Commission, the Department of Defence, and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

We can help you understand your legal rights and options for sharing your experiences with the Royal Commission. We can also connect you with other services, including free counselling.
