Angela Cox Disability Lawyer and Special Needs Advocate - Special Voices Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane

Meet Angela, a disability lawyer dedicated to supporting families of people with intellectual disability

My name is Angela and I am a Melbourne-based disability lawyer. I specialise in solving the unique legal and bureaucratic challenges faced by parents and siblings of people with intellectual disability throughout their lifetime.

Growing up with a brother with Down syndrome, and being active in his care as adults, I understand first-hand the stress, frustration, isolation and exhaustion that families suffer as they continually navigate complex and ever-changing laws and systems to get the supports they need to live a decent life.

My passion to help families in the same boat as my own family, motivated me to become a disability lawyer and establish my legal practice, Special Voices, that is solely focused on meeting their special legal needs.
