Do I need a lawyer?

There’s no straight answer to this question – although it’s a common question we get asked. The answer really depends upon your situation and circumstances. Your best bet is to contact us via email or phone to discuss your matter and we can let you know whether we can help you.

How much does a lawyer cost?

This can depend on what you’re engaging us for. At McManus & Co Lawyers, we believe in fixed fees wherever possible. For matters which require a little more work, we’ll give you a written estimate upfront and won’t get started until you’ve approved this estimate. We strive for complete transparency so there’s no bill shock when we finish working with you. Learn more about our fees.

How can I meet with your lawyers?

We believe in making it as easy as possible for you to meet with our team. For most matters, we can organise a FaceTime or Skype call, phone call or face-to-face meeting – whatever works for you. Sometimes, we will need to meet with you in person (for example, we may need to get some documents signed).

Who do you help?

Our clients come from all walks of life. Given our focus on wills and estates, family law and conveyancing, we tend to attract clients who need help resolving matters in these areas. In helping clients, our goal is to make the legal process as simple and straightforward as possible; and we apply our collective experience to all matters to get the best outcome.

Why use conveyancing lawyers, not conveyancers?

The process of buying or selling a home isn’t always smooth sailing. Legal issues can, and do, arise – and what should have been a straightforward process suddenly isn’t. If you just went with a conveyancer, you might find yourself in a sticky situation. By law, conveyancers cannot give legal advice outside their scope of conveyancing.

Our conveyancing process is supervised by some pretty amazing lawyers. So if there’s ever a problem, you’ve got the right people on hand to get things back on track, fast.
