An initial consultation is aimed at discussing your issues freely and aimed at giving you some legal advice to assist in making decisions about your legal rights, your obligations and therefore how you might wish to proceed with your particular issue.
Our initial consultations are not free and will be charged to you in line with our standard charges.
We used to offer a 20 minute free consultation but found that clients were already well aware of their general rights and actually needed specific legal advice to address their own specific needs. As such, it became necessary, in most cases, to take a deeper look into their situations and ensure any advice given was relevant and bespoke to them and their scenario.
If you do wish to speak with someone for free legal advice, we recommend getting in touch with your local community legal advice clinic. For Sunshine Coast residents, that’s the Suncoast Legal Community Service.
You should use the opportunity to ask questions of us. Ensure that you are comfortable with us and our ability to deal with your dispute. Trusting your lawyer is fundamental to getting legal advice. We always feel it best to meet someone in person to build a trusting relationship. Check out our advice and tips on finding the right lawyer for you.
If possible, we will give you an idea of the legal costs involved in dealing with your dispute through our firm.
We’ll also give you our initial view on your prospects of success, again, if we can on the information available at the time.
Why not take a look at and browse through the legal services we offer.
To book yourself into an initial consultation, just complete an online new client submission and we will be in touch to book you in, or ask you for more information or documents, at first instance.
