Respected work ethic
As experienced negotiators we can represent you using equitable and legal arguments to achieve the result you are seeking. With a large referral network of academics, leading prosecutors and specialised legal practitioners; supported by allied health professional experts, doctors and psychologists, Access Legal in Townsville offer a tailor-made representation and service to suit your needs.
Fees with parameters
Access Legal provide experienced and professional services at rates that reflect the experience of our attorneys, some of which have more than 20 years of knowledge and previous success. We know that all clients want a successful outcome, but we also know that fees are of a concern to you. Access Legal aren’t the most expensive solicitors in Townsville, nor are we the cheapest (if you’re looking for the cheapest solicitor to do the job, we’re probably not the right firm for you). However, when it comes to fees, we know the sky is not the limit!
Our team works with all clients from the very beginning to understand their financial boundaries as well as estimate the hours of work that will be involved in each case so we can provide an accurate fee estimate. If there are circumstances around your case that may increase your fees beyond what we expect, we’ll be upfront about that too.
We aren’t generalists, we are selective
We don’t purport to handle every matter or every client and we will not take on cases that fall outside our area of expertise – even if you want us and offer to pay! Most of our clients are professionals and career-orientated individuals, young people with promising futures and good parents with families they love. We know the needs of our clients in those areas and we know the legal systems involved. We know the pitfalls and how to work around them.
We focus on you, not just your case
Being accused of a crime or other wrongdoing is a highly stressful experience. Of course, a successful result in your case will be the goal, however the process to reach that outcome can be a very anxious time. The legal system can be fast, formidable and seem unfair. This is because laws are open to interpretation and it can feel as though your guilt has been decided before you’ve even said a word.
From the moment you contact Access Legal we will work to alleviate anxieties and concerns. This starts by framing your legal problem into best-case and worst-case scenario. We handle the difficult communications and preparations on your behalf (including Court appearances) by developing and providing the information that is necessary. Our team is here to get you through the experience with as little impact to you and your loved one’s lives as possible. We will address your questions and your needs throughout the representation and keep you clearly informed of progress.
We think outside the box
There is no one-size-fits-all solution in legal cases. Outside-the-box approaches are the key to most business success and at Access Legal believe the same applies to our client’s legal cases. Our legal team are trained and experienced lawyers who can get you a good result by finding creative defences to employ at trial. We use a combination of equitable and legal arguments to negotiate a settlement and utilise the best approach to achieve the best result.
Access Legal has access to a number of specialised advisors such as investigators, psychologists and doctors that we can call upon to strengthen your defence. A combination of team members, approaches, goals and back up plans are what we’ll employ to get you the best result.
