Lawyers Mt Isa

Are You Looking for Lawyers in Mt Isa?

Life has its ups and downs and you never know when you might need a lawyer in Mt Isa. Whether it’s to help with estate planning or to represent you at a court hearing, we’re a team of experienced lawyers that you can count on.

Led by our principal lawyer, Justin Ireland, we’re a small team of like-minded professionals driven by a passion to help locals within the community resolve their legal issues. We each have our own specialised areas of law which means between us we have the capacity and the ability to provide an extensive range of family and business law services.

Based in the heart of Townsville’s CBD, we service most of Queensland including Mt. Isa and since much of our work is conducted over the phone, distance really isn’t an issue. We’re also proud to offer fixed rate fees for our clients which means that we’ll send you a fixed price quote detailing exactly what we plan to do, before we commence any work. We’re keen to be totally transparent about our prices because it enables us to show you upfront, the value we offer for money. What’s more, it means you don’t have to worry about the cost of each letter you receive or the duration of a phone call. Quite simply it gives you peace of mind that there will be no nasty surprises when it comes to settling your bill.

How can we help you?

Here are just some of the areas of law that our lawyers can help Mt Isa residents with:

Family law and divorce – It’s always a tough time when a relationship breaks down, especially if there are children involved. Our compassionate lawyers will help you through this emotional time, protecting your best interests and those of your children, helping you to close this chapter of your life and prepare for what the future may hold. Our areas of expertise include property and finance settlements, child support agreements, separation and divorce, and De Facto relationships.

Wills and Estate Planning –  While nobody likes to think about death, if you want to ensure that your loved ones are financially protected and get what’s due to them once you’re no longer here, then we urge you to take legal advice. Creating a will isn’t expensive and it’s not difficult but it could cost your loved ones thousands of dollars, if you don’t  go ahead and sort one out. Our lawyers can assist you with:

  • Maximising your family’s inheritance
  • Choosing guardians and executors
  • Estate and probate laws
  • Testamentary trusts
  • Minimising the risk of your Will being contested
  • Safe storage of your Will and other legal documents

Conveyancing and property – Buying or selling a residential or commercial property is a significant factor in anyone’s life and isn’t a decision to be taken lightly. Strategic Lawyers have many years of experience with Queensland property law and have represented both buyers and sellers for all their property legal matters. We bring peace of mind to clients enabling them to enjoy their investment for years to come.

Criminal law – Finding yourself on the wrong side of the law can be a daunting and frightening prospect but you don’t need to face it alone. Navigating the criminal justice system is challenging and without the right help even minor issues can result in more serious consequences. Our experienced lawyers will listen to your side of the story and make sure that your interests are represented throughout the procedure. We’ll also ensure that any personal circumstances which could explain why the matter happened, are bought to the attention of the right people and that you get a full and fair hearing.

How we excel as lawyers for Mt Isa Residents

We value our clients and always put them first, never forgetting that we’re here to serve the community. This means:

  • Sitting you down and getting your side of the story so we can build up a bigger picture of what’s happened
  • Keeping you fully informed at all times, so you know what’s happening and why
  • Explaining the law and court procedure to you in plain everyday language
  • Being compassionate and supportive
  • Always having your best interests at heart
  • Never giving up on your case

Strategic Lawyers was recommended to me by a close friend and I was extremely happy with my experience. I first met with Justin to discuss my family law matter then I began to also work with Rob. Both gentlemen were extremely professional, thorough and supportive in their roles, keeping me constantly updated on the progress of my matter. I would recommend Strategic Lawyers to everyone requiring assistance with family law matters. Thank you to the team at Strategic Lawyers 🙂

Best in town

Jerry Manson, 2018

would highly recommend using Strategic Lawyers if you need representation in Townsville. I was represented by Anthony Sturgeon, and from the first consult till the closing case I felt comfortable and guided through the whole journey. My case was a criminal matter and having had no prior encounters of this nature I was very overwhelmed by the situation. Anthony is very professional and attentive to all your needs, especially when dealing with the law for the first time. Thanks to everyone at the firm.

Ryan Coleridge, 2018

A sincere thank you to Steve Hodgson and Justin Ireland for their hard work and professionalism during a difficult period. They not only allayed my concerns but were able to obtain an outcome beyond my expectations. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking legal advice.

Donnie Jones, 2018

Ben Watt and the team at Strategic Lawyers, went above and beyond to help my son and I. As such we were rewarded with a positive outcome. Can’t thank the team enough for their time, attention to detail and most of all their concern for our matter. Excellent service provided by all.

Jason Jackson, 2018

If you want a team of lawyers totally committed to your case, look no further. Their track record is great. They always get good outcomes for me and I always feel like I have great legal representation with them. They definitely communicate with me better than other law firms out there, and they take the time to listen to what I have to say and for me to get my story out in full. They’re not just interested in a pay check – they definitely care about me, my case, and my success. I definitely highly recommend these guys as they always achieve great results for me no matter what the case.

Sarah Myers, 2017

If you want someone to really fight for you, then look no further. I chose Strategic Lawyers because of their Fixed Prices, their friendly team and their passion. They were the bulldog in my corner when I needed it most. They won the case for me. I highly recommend them!
