Choosing a solicitor

When choosing a solicitor it pays to compare different solicitors’ experience, service and costs.

You could consider using a solicitor whom you, or your family or friends, have used in the past. Alternatively you could ask somebody to recommend a solicitor.

Queensland Law Society (QLS) has an online referral list on this website which can advise you of solicitors in your area who can help you in a particular area of law. Solicitors and legal firms also advertise their services in many places such as the Yellow Pages and your local paper.

It is always in your best interest to employ a solicitor who is experienced in the area of law you require. Queensland Law Society has a specialist accreditation program which identifies those solicitors (Accredited Specialists) who have specialist experience in family, personal injury, property, succession or immigration law.
