Using a solicitor?

Solicitors are highly-trained professionals who can guide you through the potential pitfalls of the law in Queensland. They understand the complexities and consequences of the law and can often find alternatives to resolve your issue that you may not have considered.

Buying or selling a house, help with starting a new business, and protecting your wishes by drafting your will are some of the services a solicitor can help you with, as well as helping you navigate legal problems.

Managing legal issues without the expertise of a solicitor can result in high financial and emotional costs due to potential for errors. Some of the many areas a solicitor can help you in include:

  • legal advice
  • preparing a will
  • buying or selling a home
  • setting up and running a business
  • protecting your rights
  • debt and bankruptcy guidance
  • insurance and finance
  • family law
  • motor vehicle accidents
  • help with immigration issues
  • personal injury claims and compensation
  • employment issues
  • consumer protection
