When I was a teenager and at school I had to decide, as we all do, what I wanted to do with my life. A tough decision for anyone, never mind a teenager who is still trying to discover who they are and their place in the world. I chose law.
I became a lawyer to help people find solutions to the problems that plague them. To figure out the answer, to be creative and look at the problem from every angle. I wanted to help people who also wanted to help themselves and who take responsibility for their own actions, smart people who had the vision to solve a problem from a multifaceted view-point. Knowing the law is on your side will help you build confidence to do the right thing, and to make the tough choices.
But the law should be used to help you enforce your rights, not as a tool to punish others for a slight against you, in the non-criminal sense of course. The law isn’t perfect and it has done its best to envisage as many situations as possible. But it is always growing and developing as society grows and changes.
Some complain that access to the law is too expensive, and in many cases they are right. But it is the responsibility of each of us to help ourselves too, and we can keep our legal costs done by acting reasonably, truthfully and efficiently.
So the law can help you, but it is up to you to help yourself too.
So here I am, many years later, with my own legal practice, where we work with real people to help them formalise what they need done in terms of their Estate Planning, Wills, Probate, Powers of Attorney, Conveyancing or Divorce matters, and at a fixed cost when uncontested. Fixed costs that help those who are acting reasonably, to help themselves.
I know that clients who are seeking legal services are looking for a cheap divorce, a cheap Last Will and Testament, probate that is inexpensive.
I also know that my clients will have such questions as: How do I get probate? Do I need probate? What to I do about appointing a guardian for my kids if I die? What happens to my kids if I die? How can I look after my family during a divorce? Do I need a Will? Can I challenge a Will? Do I need a Binding Financial Agreement? And so on, and so I am filling my website with useful articles to inform those looking for information.
And unfortunately I’ve been through many of the situations that my clients are going through, so I understand that it will be difficult. And I know that taking that first step can be hard, so go on, contact me below, and let me help you.
