For us, providing the best possible legal advice in the circumstances is our first priority. We believe in being honest with our clients and observing the highest standards of professionalism and integrity. We take our duty to our clients very seriously and conduct ourselves in each matter as if it were our own.

A lawyer is admitted to practice law, whereas a conveyancer is licensed to only practice conveyancing (i.e. act in property transactions).
All of our lawyers are admitted to practice law in New South Wales. Our lawyers are also admitted to the High Court of Australia which means they are entitled to practice law in all federal jurisdictions as well.

Our Sydney property lawyers can also conduct Queensland property transactions.

Our lawyers can advise in relation to most areas of law, except for migration. In the areas of criminal law and tax law, we are always happy to assist but usually, rely on advice from barristers. If you have a criminal law matter or tax law matter, give us a call to see if we can help. If we cannot help you we always know someone who can.
