Men's Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service (NSW)

A Men's Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service has commenced meetings in Sydney to discuss practical ways of dealing with AVO and ADVO proceedings.

The service was started by a well known, high profile Barrister Mr Mario Licha, who is an experienced criminal law barrister. The service is for AVO advice for men only.
