Welcome to Metta Legal

Helping People, Changing Lives
  • Welcome to Metta Legal

    Our office is located at shop 1, 7-9 Cross St, Bankstown NSW Our solicitors attend court and client appointments in a range of locations We assist clients all over NSW and we also accept Family Law court cases Australia-wide.

  • Family Law & Child Protection

    Children should have an opportunity to be children, without having to be dragged through long custody battles. Property from a marriage or de facto relationship should be carefully dealt with following a separation. Metta Legal recognises the importance of what’s important to you, when we assist you with your family law matter.

  • Wills & Estates Planning

    We all hope to leave behind something memorable as a testimony of our life. Leave behind a legacy of greatness and beauty, not a tangled mess for your loved ones to sort through and administer. Speak to us about preparing a will and associated legal documents to protect you.

  • From boardroom to courtroom

    Whether you need a one-off consultation for legal advice, a mediation to assist you to reach an agreement, or for us to attend court to advocate on your behalf, Metta Legal is your one-stop shop. We also accept agency matters for other law practices, acting as agents at court mentions, hearings and mediations.

We hear you

Lawyers are trained to speak and advocate for their clients. At Metta Legal, we are also trained to listen, to understand you and the situation life has placed you in. Part of that ability to listen is to be able to empathise with you, yet also to maintain an equanimous mind so as to provide you with impartial and straightforward advice.

We consult with you

Legal proceedings can be quite a disempowering process, where you may have little control over the outcome of those proceedings. At Metta Legal, we empower our clients by providing them with valuable advice and information, so they can make informed decisions throughout their case. We take the time to consult with our clients, and where appropriate, formulate with them a ‘game plan’ for their case.

We come to you

Whether you live or work in the north, south, east, west, or in Sydney CBD, we have a solicitor who can meet with you in a location convenient to you. Meetings are by appointments only, so please contact our office so we can make a booking for you to meet with a solicitor in any of the following locations: • Sydney CBD • Auburn • Bankstown • Burwood • Campebelltown • Five Dock • Glebe • Hornsby • Hurstville • Kensington • Liverpool • North Ryde • Parramatta

We collaborate

In the real world, problems don’t come in neat packages with the word ‘Legal’ addressed on the front. The reality of modern problems is it’s often a complex mix of legal and non-legal issues. At Metta Legal, we have working relationships with various support services that may be able to assist you with any non-legal actions or decisions you may need to make. This integrated approach allows different professions to collaborate together to achieve a holistic outcome for you.

We problem-solve

There is a real shift in the legal system to move away from adversarial (and antagonistic) processes to embrace Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) practices. This is obvious from legislative changes and the way courts deal with matters. It is also an obvious benefit to our clients, saving them time and money. At Metta Legal, we are skilled at negotiations and mediations, as well as drafting legal documents to reflect any agreements reached by these means.

We advocate

If you have a court matter, or wish to commence court proceedings, we appear in courts as solicitor-advocates or instructing solicitors, depending on what your matter requires. We have experience in the following courts: • Supreme Court of NSW • District Court • Local Court • Federal Circuit Court • Family Court • Children’s Court of NSW. We have appeared in courts in various areas, from Sydney CBD to Wollongong to Parramatta, to even Brisbane!

Holiday Closure

Metta Legal is closed for the festive season and will reopen at 9am on 15 January 2018. The Metta Legal wishes you and your family a peaceful and happy start to the new year.
