A law firm is a law firm… right? Not quite. Sometimes the differences are obvious. But more often the differences are subtle yet incredibly important, and marked by a fine line. This fine line runs through us as a brand and has an impact on everything we do. We are profoundly conscious of the difference we can make, and the difference that comes from serving you from the right side of that very fine line. Our Way is a unique way of offering legal value. It’s not what one does, but how one does it that really counts. Our Way is the way we do what we do (see Approved applications). It’s the way we turn ordinary legal matters into things that make a real and lasting difference.
It could be argued that some of the “fine lines” we talk about are not fine lines at all, but obvious differences. Whichever way you see it, what counts is that you experience the difference in the legal service we provide. It’s what happens when an entire team of professionals seeks to serve you from the correct side of the fine line, at all times and in every way.
We have the experience
While it is important to have an consultant that you can trust, it is equally important that he or she has extensive experience in the area of Liquor Law for which you require their services. For example, you should you use an consultant with hands on experience to draft your application, a divorce attorney to draft divorce papers and a trial lawyer to defend you in a criminal case. General practitioners are good for basic real estate transactions, or other non-complex matter, but their lack of detailed knowledge and experience in a given field can hurt your case.
We are honest. Free initial consultation
We offer an initial consultation free of charge. Take advantage of this. Use the meeting to determine whether we are honest and forthcoming. Instinctively, some people have the ability to determine an individual's character within a few minutes of interacting with the person; You can ask any question. You will have a definite guideline if your application will succeed or not. We do not take on cases that is risky. We do not take money from a client if we are not sure we will succeed.
