Katherine Women's Legal Service have bolstered their team, adding two new lawyers early last week.
KWILS offer specialist legal advice to women, and are prominent anti-domestic violence campaigners in Katherine.
Eleanor Connop and Olivia Huntington are the new additions, and started work in Katherine on April 12.
"I wanted to do something different, I've wanted to work in this area for a really long time," Ms Huntington said.
"I've obviously always been interested in women's law and issues... hopefully I can learn a lot and help the community," Ms Connop added.
Ms Huntington said she wants to help represent victims of family violence, as they navigate the court system.
"I can't wait for the day I've actually helped someone and changed their life by helping them get out of a bad situation," she said.
KWILS chief executive officer Brooke Brenner welcomed the pair to Katherine, and said she is excited to have a full team of lawyers in the office, after working with a reduced number of staff earlier this year.
"It's fantastic, we're really excited," she said.
"It's been a time of a little upheaval, but now we've got a really fresh and energetic team, we're here and ready for people to come through the door."
Ms Brenner said KWILS offers legal advice in Domestic & Family Violence, Child Protection and Family law.
"We offer drop in services at the KWILS office and duty service at the Katherine Courthouse," she said.
"For other civil legal matters, please get in touch and if we cannot assist, we will refer you to an appropriate service."
KWILS also offers Community Legal Education to organisations in Katherine.
Ms Brenner said anyone who wants to contact their office should call 08 8972 1712.
