General Practice Lawyer

In a time of increasing specialisation in legal practice, there is more need than ever for general practitioners who know how all the specialist pieces fit together.

Your general practice lawyer is the starting point for any legal issue.

We can help you with most of the common legal issues that arise everyday for individuals and small businesses.

Like your general practice doctor, one of our core skills is diagnosis.

We work out what sort of legal help you need. If we can help you, we do.

But we also recognise when you need specialist help, and we can refer to you to specialists we have confidence in.

It is our ethical duty to put your interests first – so you can rely on us to advise you about the best way to deal with your legal issue.

We are also available to provide holistic advice and assistance to specialist lawyers to resolve issues that impact on their cases, including consumer credit, guardianship and administration, National Disability Insurance Scheme Reviews and Appeals. 

Contact us for help with your legal issue.
