‘Mr Yega Muthu (legal aid lawyer) impressed me with his balanced, well-articulated and earnest exploration of the issues regarding my patient who he was representing today.
I just wanted to thank him for his work with the Tribunal, and that I commend him for his work as a legal aid lawyer.’
Dr K Roper, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney (July 2020)
‘Yega represented our friend at an NCAT hearing, noted by them to be “challenging and a very complex case”.
He saved this gentle, special man from a lifetime of social control when he had not committed any crime, and who suffers from a mental illness through no fault of his own.
Rather than being restrictively controlled and allowed out for only half an hour a day, he retained his freedom as a result of Yega’s representation.
Yega is a champion for the voiceless and powerless, and we highly recommend him.’
Hermann Wachtendorff, Woollahra (October 2020)
