Family and Relationship Lawyers
Family and relationship law is often misunderstood and ignored. When issues arise they often hit home at a sensitive and emotional time, and the people involved are frequently ill-prepared and in desperate need of legal advice and careful planning.
Pier Law’s team specialise in all areas of the law relating to separation, relationship property, child and spousal maintenance and claims against estates. Our team provides you with a confidential, secure, and professional approach during what is often a very emotional time for all involved. We can also arrange referrals to other professionals where the matter is beyond our level of expertise.
The Benefits of Our Family Law Team
Our mission at Pier Law is to provide you, as a client, with high-quality legal services with a personal touch uppermost on our list of priorities. Like you, we are “real people” and work with you to result in positive outcomes. Our friendly approach ensures that we are not simply a necessary burden when family issues or family legal needs arise.
