About us

Porters Lawyers is Australia’s leading rights-based law firm specialising in institutional sexual abuse.
For almost three decades, Porters has built a talented and experienced team of special counsel, senior associates, associates, solicitors and specialist para-legals who understand the sensitive nature of the cases they prosecute, and work closely with clients to negotiate a path through the legal process.
Our experience has provided a deep understanding and empathy for clients who have witnessed – and who are working through – the historical impacts of institutional sexual abuse. Our firm is focussed on providing the advice, empathy and patience required for those still suffering from injustices of the past.
We work with clients from all over Australia and the world. Our team will travel to any part of the country to ensure you are heard. Together we can advance towards recognition of crimes from years or decades ago, and seek reparation for their impacts over time.
