Growing Stronger

We’re here to help

Our team are experts in health and medical law, relationship and family law, elder law, wills and estates, and property buying and selling.

We’re leaders in the legal profession and our community. Our expertise in health and medical law is widely acknowledged, inside the legal profession and out. That’s why we’re the preferred referral firm for many other lawyers in NSW and the ACT.

Our clients tell us that our lawyers are exceptional listeners, supportive and accessible.

We have offices in Newcastle, Sydney and on the NSW Mid-North Coast.

Who do we represent?

We don’t represent big corporations. We do work for everyday people, whether you live in the Newcastle and Hunter Region, regional NSW or the ACT.

You might be a parent going through a messy relationship break-down. Maybe you’ve put your trust in medical professionals and had that trust abused. Maybe you’re an older person or aged-care resident who hasn’t been treated with the dignity you deserve. Sometimes our clients simply want the best possible advice to make sure that when they die, their estate goes exactly where they want it to.

Whatever your reason for seeing us, we’ll make sure your voice is heard. We’re renowned for playing hard but fair. You’ll get robust, expert representation that combines our passion for people with level-headed advice.

We believe the law should serve everyone

It’s important for all of us to be properly heard, especially when we’re at our most vulnerable. That’s why we’re committed to bringing you the highest quality legal advice at a price you can afford. We use our talent and experience to make sure you get the best possible outcome. We roll up our sleeves and get on with it, giving you practical, down-to-earth advice that will make a real difference to your life.
