Giving Back

With our principal solicitor’s (Lina Tjoeng) earlier background in social/community services and her degree in social sciences, she has a true spirit for giving back to the community.

MLC Lawyers believe we are a company with a purpose, and we embrace corporate social responsibility—our clients know that we care about our community.

Lina served as the president of the Khmer (Cambodian) Community of NSW Inc. for more than 11 years on a pro bono basis to serve and assist the Cambodian community in NSW with their needs, including settlement services, community radio and a traditional band and dance group, together with her team.

With her involvement with the Khmer community, she has also been involved in many community-based round tables and fundraising functions, as well as supporting the Cambodian Baptist Church.

She has also been delivering several free and informative presentations through Liverpool community radio and seminars to improve people’s understanding of migration law, family law and the Australian legal system.

We are often involved in community functions and provide donations where appropriate. We have supported and donated to Bushfire appeals, Liverpool Hospital, The Khmer Community of NSW Inc., Good Return, The Salvation Army, Northcott, NSW Police, NSW Ambulance, the Cambodian Baptist Church and Fairfield City Council Fundraisers and other good causes. We always look for new ways to support the community and people in need.

Since April 2021, Lina has been the co-founder, co-programmer and co-presenter of Khmer Hope Radio Program on a pro bono basis every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. Sydney Time at 2GLF, 89.3FM, providing relaxing and inspirational Khmer music, useful and current community information, as well as uplifting good news for the Khmer community in Liverpool, Fairfield, Sydney and beyond to ease mental stress.

We also provide pro bono services for disadvantaged clients who cannot afford legal services.
