What makes a good lawyer? It requires a number of characteristics. You must be a good listener, so you obtain all the relevant information from your client and an understanding of what is important to them. As trite as it sounds, you need to truly care about your client’s welfare and appreciate that they are depending on you and paying you good money to achieve results. Of course, you need a sound knowledge of the law and the experience and know-how to properly apply this knowledge in the best possible way.


Damian and Francene have over 50 years combined experience in the law. Over the last decade Damian has come to realise that the traditional legal office... having clients come to an office, visit the reception desk, sit in a waiting room and then across a desk…often doesn’t make for the best and most effective communication between client and lawyer.


Breaking down barriers to us means making the law more accessible to our clients. We operate from a home office and are happy to meet with clients in their homes, at their businesses, at a café or at our office if that is what you prefer. We are able to conduct virtual conferences through video platforms or by phone.

Greater accessibility and flexibility doesn’t mean we compromise on professionalism. We are committed to using our comprehensive legal knowledge and experience to provide clear, accurate advice and to achieve the best possible outcome. We are also committed to being honest and transparent by keeping our clients fully aware of the costs of our services as their matter progresses and always keeping them informed throughout the process.
