Victims of Crime Assistance

At Mal Ryan & Glen our team understands that you have been through a very traumatic event.  We will ensure that the Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal (VOCAT) application process is explained to you in simple terms and we will minimise the amount of detail we require from you regarding the event/s to ensure you are not re-traumatised.   We will set you at ease in the knowledge that you and your claim are in safe and compassionate hands with our team.
