Good legal advice and lawyers who are able to win difficult cases can make a real difference to people’s lives. That’s why the VHPA has looked long and hard at which firm is best able to provide services for our members. We decided upon Maurice Blackburn and have negotiated an attractive package of benefits for VHPA members.

Free Will – all members, and their partners, are entitled to a free standard Will every five years. There is no cost to the union or members for this service.
