Our team

Our team has over 40 years of collective experience in delivering high quality work in all areas that we offer. Our team is comprised of solicitors, trainee solicitors, associates and paralegals. Paralegals, associates and trainee solicitors do much of the day to day work on cases. Although they are not legally qualified, they have the requisite experience and have received extensive training within our firm and work under the direct supervision of a solicitor. We always make sure that paralegals and associates are supported and supervised appropriately so that the quality of our service is not affected, regardless of who is working on your case.


There will always be more than one team member working on your matter. This is to ensure that the progress of your matter is not affected due to any eventuality. Regardless of who works on your matter, there will always be a qualified solicitor supervising the conduct of your matter. We have a proven track record in achieving successful outcomes for our clients.
