New Way Lawyers is a non-profit law firm.
We are not motivated by profit or financial gain because there are no shareholders or partners in our organisation.
There is also no financial benefit for individuals that serve on our board of directors.
This means that our services are more affordable because the purpose of our fees is simply to cover costs not to generate profit.
Our constitution provides full details of our structure. A copy of our constitution is available from ASIC or from our office.
