Yes, we are lawyers, but the term paraclete better describes our calling.
In ancient Greece, lawyers were sometimes called a paraclete. Paraclete literally means a person who is “called to one’s side or aid”. There is no one English term which fully captures who a paraclete is. Different attempts at translation include advocate, helper, encourager, comforter and intercessor.
“Our calling is to be more than just lawyers. Our calling is to stand side by side with our clients as their advocate, helper, encourager and intercessor.”
Our lawyers have spent their careers developing broad skills to service clients across several key sectors. For our school, church and not for profit clients, we have over 15 years in your world and bring up to the minute legal expertise and “hands on” active management of your matter by our senior legal advisors. We are agile, value for money, and responsive to your needs.
The beating heart of our practice are everyday people who call our team to their side. Whether you are buying your first home, administering your parent’s estate, or running a family business, our first prize is to be known as “your lawyers“.
