About Liacopoulos Lawyers

About Us

No one wants to see a lawyer. Legal issues are stressful and complicated, and lawyers are out of touch. We get that. That’s why at Liacopoulos Lawyers, we offer our professional service a little differently to everyone else.  

We understand that people may just need a point in the right direction. So we offer free initial consultations. We understand that people don’t have time to deal with legal issues during work hours, so we offer meetings after-hours and on weekends at our office,  your home or workplace. We understand that people want to know the costs involved, so we offer fixed prices.

But more importantly, at Liacopoulos Lawyers we get to know you as a person, not just your legal issues. We don’t offer low cost, automated plug and play legal documents (they don’t work by the way). We tailor our advice to your circumstances in a practical and easy to understand way. We involve you and get your input every step of the way, and we respond to your questions quickly, so you aren’t left wondering in the dark. We try to take the stress out of your matter, so you can focus on what matters to you.

At Liacopoulos Lawyers, we don’t pretend we can do it all. We offer a select area of legal services that we are passionate about, and leave the rest for others.  If you need a recommendation in an area we don’t practice in, we’ll happily refer you to like minded law practices. 

We act honestly, compassionately and above all with integrity. You’ll always be welcome anytime.

We look forward to hearing from you.
