Need a Lawyer in Cairns?

If you go through life never needing a lawyer in Cairns, then you’re one of a small minority of people. Life takes many twists and turns, and you never know when you might need the services of a good lawyer. Say, your relationship breaks down and your spouse is refusing to let you see the kids or perhaps you’re considering buying into a franchising agreement and you want reassurance that everything is above board in the contract. It’s at times like these that it’s good to know you have a reliable and experienced lawyer you can count on.

Let us introduce you to Strategic Lawyers. We’re a small team of experienced lawyers led by principal lawyer Justin Ireland. Based in Townsville, we cover the suburbs of North Queensland extending as far as Cairns. Having a wide knowledge base between us, we provide a full complement of family and business law services.

We’re approachable friendly professionals offering high quality legal services at good value for money prices. In fact, when our company was established, we were the very first law firm in North Queensland to provide fixed-rate prices for our clients. Even today, we’re the only Queensland law firm advertising our family and criminal law prices upfront on our website! We believe in being totally transparent about our pricing with absolutely no hidden fees. This means that you can allow for our fees in your budget or compare our prices with other companies, whenever you need legal assistance.

How can we help you?

Here are just some of the areas in which our lawyers can help Cairns residents and businesses:

Conveyancing and Property – Perhaps you’re excitedly buying your first home together. It’s probably the largest investment you’ll ever make, so it’s imperative to have a good solicitor on board who can carry out the relevant searches, negotiate prices, and ensure all your paperwork is in order, so that you can enjoy the benefits of your investment for many years to come.

Family law and divorceA divorce can get incredibly messy, especially if it’s not amicable and/or there are children involved. Whether you need our help to resolve disputes or to help divide property and other assets, we’re here to help. We’re compassionate and supportive doing all we need to do to protect your interests, while minimising further emotional turmoil. Our areas of expertise include separation and divorce, De Facto relationships, child support agreements and property and finance settlements

Domestic Violence – Are you being threatened with a DVO from an ex-partner? You need to seek legal advice fast if you want to oppose the order. A DVO can impact your life and your job. Our lawyers can help by preparing evidence and the necessary paperwork and go to court on your behalf to explain why this order should not be made against you. With our experienced lawyers at the helm, you stand a far better chance of a successful outcome.

Wills and Estate Planning – Nobody likes to think about dying but if you want to ensure your loved ones receive everything that you want them to at such a difficult and sad time, then our advice is always to make a Will as soon as you can. It isn’t difficult and it isn’t expensive, so don’t delay it until it’s too late. Our Cairns lawyers can help in the following areas:

  • Estate and probate laws
  • Testamentary trusts
  • Minimising the risk of your will being contested
  • Maximising your family’s inheritance
  • How to choose executors and guardians
  • Safe storage of your Will

Litigation LawIt’s a fact of life that not everyone gets along all of the time and disputes can and do arise. Disputes often arise between neighbours and landlords and tenants. When you’ve tried and failed to reach a compromise then litigation is often the only way forward. 

Our litigation service caters for individuals as well as businesses and you have our assurance that we’ll fight your corner to protect your interests and defend what is rightly yours.

Navigating the Queensland judicial system is challenging at the best of times, so it’s always best to leave it to the professionals.
