Our clients & partners

Partnerships are at the heart of our work – because we know we are stronger together.

Below are just some of our amazing clients and partners.

“It has been a privilege to work with EJA on our overwhelmingly successful case against VicForests. The EJA legal team has lead us confidently through a very complex court process and ensured we have access to the best possible advice and representation. We are grateful to EJA for the opportunity to hold a powerful government logging corporation to account.”

– Steve Meacher, President of Friends of Leadbeater’s Possum

“Our community is deeply grateful for the legal guidance and support provided by EJA. Their legal team took the time to understand the impacts of a proposed mine on our community, economy and environment, and presented our case in a compelling way at the hearings. EJA’s advocacy and representation ensured our community was able to participate as a respected party, exposing important matters that would otherwise have escaped attention.”

– Mine-Free Glenaladale Inc.

“EJA’s lawyers helped our group, Zero Waste Victoria, negotiate improved conditions which was a big win for the Hobsons Bay and Wyndham communities, and those with concerns about the health and environmental impacts of the proposed waste-to-energy facility in Laverton. I am grateful and appreciative of EJA’s dedication and thoroughness, for all their support and for the outcomes we achieved.”

– Kirsty Bishop-Fox, Zero Waste Victoria

“We are only a small group of volunteers with little experience in litigation so the help and support we have received from the EJA team through this whole process has been amazing. Their incredibly hard work and persistence has helped us to build our case stronger than we could have imagined. The passion and determination from each of the lawyers and their support team is so inspiring. There is always a positive outlook and encouraging energy that makes working with the EJA team an easy and pleasant experience.”

– Wildlife of the Central Highlands (WOTCH)
