Using a solicitor/lawyer

Solicitors are highly-trained professionals who can guide you through the potential pitfalls of the law in Queensland. They understand the complexities of the law and can often find alternative ways to resolve your legal issue that could save you time, money and emotional energy.

Whether you are buying or selling a house, starting a new business, or drafting your will, a solicitor can help you to navigate through the process. Managing legal issues without the expertise of a solicitor can result in high financial and emotional costs due to potential for errors.

Choosing a solicitor

When choosing a solicitor/lawyer it pays to compare different solicitors’ experience, service and costs. You could consider using a solicitor whom you, or your family have used in the past. Alternatively you could ask your friends to recommend a solicitor. Whomever you choose, it is in your best interest to employ a solicitor experienced in the area of law you require.

Queensland Law Society has a 'find a solicitor' referral list on this website which can help you locate solicitors in your area who can assist with your legal needs.

You and your solicitor

For many people, using a solicitor’s services for a legal issue is unfamiliar territory. Some may be unsure about the legal processes, concerned about the emotional toll of legal proceedings, or are apprehensive about costs.

In Queensland, solicitors operate under the Legal Profession Act 2007 which prescribes various legal rights and obligations towards you as the client. Put simply – solicitors are here to help and you should feel confident that in engaging one, you are taking an important step in protecting your rights and interests.
