At this time, our preference is to continue to service our clients remotely (for example, via Zoom or phone). If you really need to see us in person, we can make arrangements.

We offer a ‘virtual world’

Our services are supported by our technology.

Our phones are monitored during normal business hours of 9.00 am to 5.00 pm, Monday to Friday. You can leave a voicemail message outside these hours.

If you contact us through Facebook messaging, we will endeavour to respond as soon as practicable.

Due to the strict social distancing policies in place, property transactions are reduced.

However, there are still people looking to buy and sell property during this period.

We continue to offer our highly competitive conveyancing deals which you can view here.

Court appearances and VCAT matters

Currently, VCAT and the courts are allowing a mixture of either in-person hearings and remote hearings. The type of hearing you will be allocated will depend upon the nature of your matter and the hearing. This means that solicitors and parties can appear via video or telephone conference or in person.

Due to the back-log of cases in VCAT and the courts many directions and interlocutory hearings are being held remotely. To attend the remote hearing by video link the court may require you to do so from your solicitor’s office.

If your hearing or trial is to be held in person, VCAT and the courts require you to:

  • wear a mask at all times; and
  • socially distance yourself from others attending the court.
