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 • Bankstown • Burwood • Campbelltown • Glebe • Hornsby • Kingsford • Liverpool • Ryde • Parramatta
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.
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 Magistrates 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!
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.
