We understand that when parties are in the process of separating and dealing with their family law issues, there are a number of stresses which can make the process more overwhelming and daunting.
At McLaughlins we take steps to “make it easier” for family law clients by being practical, proactive, and positive. Here are some of the things we do for our clients…
One – Stop Shopping
McLaughlins is a law firm which prides itself on a long and established history practising in various areas of law. We can advise and assist our clients not only with your family law matters but other legal matters (e.g. transfer of property pursuant to any property settlement; review and drafting a new Will). This reduces stress for our clients in having to deal with different law firms for different matters.
Location, Location, Location
McLaughlins Lawyers have offices in Southport where we can meet with our clients. Where an in person meeting is not possible or convenient, we have facilities for electronic (Skype) or telephonic consultations and conferences. This means that distance is no issue, time can be saved, and costs can be reduced.
Filling in the Blanks
We understand that for many people the process of completing documents and filling in forms can be stressful. We can assist in a number of ways, including meeting with clients to take their instructions to complete the documents and filling in the information we already have on file, this means clients only need to fill in the blanks.
On-Line and Up-To-Date
The Family Court of Australia utilise an online portal for court documentation to be uploaded and filed. Managing your matters through the online court portal is advantageous as it allows instant access to the information, 24/7 in a secure way, and, for certain matters, clients can choose their own dates for court hearings. Being in control of the process and having access to information is important in reducing stress for our clients.
Together is Better
There is a supportive team approach in handling client’s matters. With both experienced lawyers and knowledgeable paralegals and support staff working together to ensure that each matter is dealt with efficiently and with an exceptional level of service. Working together means that if the lawyer is out of the office or unavailable to deal with a client immediately, the level of service provided and response time is not compromised.
These are just some of the ways we work with our clients to ensure that their family law matter is made easy for them.
At McLaughlins Lawyers, we have an experienced team of family lawyers who can advise you on an extensive range of family law matters. McLaughlins is the Gold Coast’s oldest law firm with professional and approachable lawyers providing the highest standard of innovative legal services. Our promise to you is to be honest and trustworthy, reliable, professional, approachable, and supportive and to provide value for money.
