How Can We Help You?
Qld Law Group has the expertise to give you the best legal advice when it matters most. We believe that your problem is our problem, no matter how big or small. When life takes you off track, we will help you create a new direction.
When a dispute arises, it is generally good advice to try and reach a solution sooner rather than later. The longer a dispute goes on, the less likely any party will achieve a satisfactory outcome.
At the Qld Law Group we can provide you with quick advice as to how to resolve the dispute on favourable and cost effective grounds. If the dispute can’t be settled, the Qld Law Group will fight hard for you in court and give you the Qld Law Group Difference to get you the best possible result.
There is nothing worse than not being paid what is owed to you.
Usually people who don’t pay their debts make you feel worse by ignoring you and you have to risk losing more money chasing what is yours.
The Qld Law Group knows how to kick butt for you and kick it hard and fast. The longer it takes to chase a debt, the harder it is to get paid and the more it costs and the Qld Law Group will help you recover what you are owed quickly and efficiently. If there are problems you will be told so that you will always have control over the action taken and the costs incurred
Things do not always go to plan. When that happens the Qld Law Group can help enforce your rights and help provide a practical solution to the problem. We will help you negotiate rather than litigate a solution, if possible.
Quick action is often the best course to bring a dispute to a effective conclusion. The Qld Law Group can help you across all types of disputes including:
- Debt recovery;
- Insolvency matters;
- Protecting intellectual property rights;
- Specific performance of contracts;
- Damages for non-performance.
The experienced Qld Law Group Criminal Defence Team is available for assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if you have the misfortune of falling foul of the law.
If you have been pulled over, arrested, or charged with a criminal offence, you should contact 1300 QLD LAW and we will get back to you immediately. Our firm has handled countless criminal defence matters relating from simple public nuisance charges to severe violent crimes heard in the Supreme Court of Queensland.
If you are interviewed by the police, don’t make things worse for yourself by thinking you can talk your way out of whatever trouble you are in. Be polite and courteous to the police and other than your name and address, the only thing you should tell the police is that you want to call 1300 QLD LAW.
If you have been charged with an offence and, given the ever-increasing penalties and fines handed down by Judges, it is important that you do not appear in a Court unrepresented. Our expert Criminal Defence Team will be pleased to assist you to formulate your best strategy for defence and appearing with you in Court whatever the circumstance.
Drink Driving Offences
In most instances, being caught with a blood alcohol reading exceeding .05 will result in a fine and loss of licence.
For those who need their vehicle to get to or from work, the consequences can be more serious through loss of income or even dismissal. Provisions exist for “work licences”. While not easily obtained, they are necessary in many circumstances and the Qld Law Group can help you get that licence so that you can support yourself and your family.
Even if you are not eligible for a work licence and we will tell you if you have little chance of that, the Qld Law Group can help make submissions to the Court so that you can get your licence back as quickly as possible.
Motor Vehicle Offences
If you drive a vehicle recklessly or carelessly, you can be exposed to significant fines, jail time and even forfeiture of your motor vehicle. If the offence is serious or may result in your losing your licence, you should contact 1300 QLD LAW so that we can help get you the best possible outcome.
Power of Attorney
Unfortunately, circumstances may dictate that we are no longer in a position to manage our own financial and health affairs. Be it as a result of an accident, illness or our absence overseas, the law provides that a holder of our Power of Attorney can act on our behalf.
Just as a Will is essential to ensure that things are done as we would like after our death, a Power of Attorney ensures that our financial and health concerns can be properly dealt with where our capacity to do so because of illness or absence prevents us from doing so.
At Qld Law Group we believe that every adult should have an Enduring Power of Attorney and strongly consider creating an Advanced Health Directive.
Contact the experienced professionals at the Qld Law Group to arrange your Enduring Power of Attorney.
You know the old saying “you can’t avoid death and taxes”.
Everyone Needs a Will
Unfortunately, none of us are going to live forever so we all need a Will. If you don’t have a Will then the Government decides how your family will share what you leave behind not you.
You have worked hard all your life to leave your family something.
What you don’t want to leave your family is a mess or the Government telling them what to do.
It is important that you have a Will that reflects not just your wishes but your current life circumstances.
You may now have your own business or run a company and your life is complicated. You need a Will that deals with these complications and the Qld Law Group can ensure that your family isn’t left with a mess to clean up when you are gone.
Keep Your Will Current
Just because you have a Will doesn’t mean it is not going to leave your family in a mess and you should think about having the Qld Law Group review your Will if a significant event occurs like … what is there is okay but remove “to provide guardians from having children”.
There are a number of Life’s events that should trigger a review of your estate planning and will including:
- Getting married or a life partner;
- Buyer a property for the first time;
- Having children (to provide for guardians);
- Children reaching 18;
- Getting divorced;
- Significantly changed family arrangements;
- Starting Up New Business.
Remember not having a will leaves your estate to the inflexible intestacy rules that decide where your money goes not you.
The Qld Law Group can help you:
- If you have been made an Executor under a Will; or
- You have been left out of a Will.
If you have been made an Executor (a person entrusted to divide the estate) under a Will, this is a serious task that if not handled properly can expose you to stress and even being sued. The Qld Law Group can apply the Qld Law Group Difference to guide you through this complicated process and make it as simple and stress-free as it can be and make sure that you are not sued by a disgruntled person.
Life isn’t always fair.
Sometimes you do things for others on a promise that they will take care of you when they go or when a family member treats you differently to the rest of the family under their Will.
Simply because you have been excluded under the Will it doesn’t mean that you aren’t entitled to a share in the estate and the Qld Law Group can help you get what you are entitled to.
Sometimes Wills contain the unexpected or the unforseen due to the age of the will or errors in drafting that do not properly give effect to the deceased’s intention. It is possible to challenge a will if a person believes they should have benefited in a way different from the outcome. The Qld law Group’s experienced lawyers will advise you as to prospects and help you through these upsetting times.
