We are OPEN & propose to remain open & available as much as possible

Some of the legal services we provide are essential. For instance, sales and purchases still need to go ahead.

We follow recommended health protocols. Please telephone or email us first if you have any concerns.

We need to behave and think differently in these extraordinary times. While maintaining social distance and good hygiene we try to stay connected, reach out to those isolated and work together as a community.

Stymie logoStymie web app to disrupt the cycle of bystanding at school

"In 87% of cases of bullying and harm, there are bystanders present. While some people may feel comfortable initiating conversations about harm with others, many don't."

"Stymie allows bystanders to remain anonymous, giving them the courage to overcome the fears and social pressures that prevent them from speaking up. It also relieves feelings of helplessness for those who want to help their peers but don't quite know how."

"Stymie is a web application, meaning it can be accessed via any internet browser; nothing needs to be downloaded from a website or store."

Reports should also be made to app providers. It is also a Commonwealth criminal offence to use a carriage service to menace harass or cause offence.
