About Us

Our Promise

We promise to provide friendly, efficient and cost effective legal services to our clients, in their time and their language.

 

Our History

 

There's a reason why we have been around since 1983, and it's not just because we are good at what we do. We're revolutionising how legal services are provided to the everyday person. 

​We provide legal services to clients throughout Australia with a primary emphasis on the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sunshine Coast areas.

 

Some of our practice areas include conveyancing, wills and estates, family law, commercial law, businesses and leasing, litigation, debt collection and criminal and traffic law.

 

We can also provide representation in all Magistrate, District and Supreme Courts and are able to assist with probate applications, elder law, Enduring Power of Attorneys, Advance Health Directives and more. In complex matters, we also engage experienced barristers and other expert advisers to ensure our clients have the highest possible legal representation whilst also controlling costs.

 

Our Philosophy

 

Our philosophy of Real Problems, Real Solutions, Real Results underpins our culture and who we are.

Real Problems

We are real people with real problems just like you. We have the life experience to understand what you are going through and how to help you in a way that you can understand and will appreciate.
 

Real Solutions

We want to solve your matter and get the job done in a timely manner by giving you real solutions. It's the small things that make the big difference and that's why we are committed to keeping it simple and not complicating things.

Real Results

When you are entering the legal system, the first thing you look for is someone who can achieve your goals by getting real results. This is at the heart of what we do and we do it everyday.
