So, lawyers huh?
When I think of lawyers I immediately picture a tailored pant suit, robes paired with white curly wigs, and a whole heap of paperwork — basically just a less glittery version of Suits. But of course, this is my impression of lawyers without having ever actually needed to use one. I’m sure not all paralegals go on to marry a Prince…
The truth is, you don’t need to know about lawyers, until you actually need a lawyer. And as it turns out, we all will probably need a lawyer at some point in our lives. Whether it is for those super serious things like divorces or when you’re being sued (side bar — how exactly does one get sued? Just another thing I hope I don’t need to know about…), or for those moments when you might not be getting exactly what is fairly owed to you, or if you’re struggling to reach an agreement with someone in your life.
If you’re wondering how I can speak so confidently on a profession I’ve had absolutely no interaction with — it’s because I’ve cheated, and gone straight to the team at Cavalier Legal. If you’re new to the world of law, then these are the guys and gals you need to chat to because they can take a big scary legal situation or document, and turn it into an easily digestible plan of action — without all the tricky jargon. They are the experts in modern, friendly legal professionalism — and wait until you see their New York warehouse-style office on Pulteney Street!
I have my fingers, toes, legs, and eyes crossed that none of you find yourselves stuck between a rock and a hard place and in need of a super smart lawyer to help you climb out. But if you ever do… knowledge is power. So here are some of the things that Cavalier Legal can help you out with….
If you’re getting into the property game…
Who else had NO CLUE what they were doing when they bought their first property? In hindsight, I wish I’d know about Cavalier Legal! If you’re buying or selling a property (or a business!) and you’re not quite sure where to start, Cavalier Legal can provide all the necessary conveyancing services and advice from the preparation and signing of the contract, all the way up to the settlement date. They chat directly to the agent, your bank, and the other party and ensure everything is taken care of without a worry, in a quick and affordable way.
Another bonus in the new world of COVID-19 is that Cavalier Legal were one of the first firms in SA to adopt e-Conveyancing practices, which has now become mandatory.
If you’re looking to lease a property, they can handle all of the negotiations and document preparation and provide you with advice on all of the legal implications of what you are entering into — plus ensure you’ve got some protection if something were to go wrong… phew!
If you’re immersed in the world of business…
If you’re running your own business, chances are you’ve got one billion other things you need to think about before worrying about employment contracts etc etc… luckily, Cavalier Legal are experts in employment law matters, so they can help you prepare and review employment contracts, and safeguard yourself against all Fair Work issues like Unfair Dismissal or Underpayment Claims.
As a small business, we also hate having to have those *awkward* conversations when you’re owed money. If your business is not being paid, Cavalier Legal can recover that money through the court process, representing you all the way through from sending letters of demands to appearing in court on your behalf.
If you’ve got loved ones to take care of…
My absolute worst nightmare — having to run through the process of drafting a Will and assigning a legal Power of Attorney scares the bejeezus out of me (morbid brain alert!). Cavalier Legal can help draft up all these documents to make sure you and your loved ones assets are properly dealt with if something were to happen to you or them.
And with love, sometimes comes heartache, so the team can also help provide advice, representation and solutions for any family law issues or disputes you have with your partner — including the proper splitting up of assets and agreements for the future ahead of you.
And of course, if you’ve got any other general law issues that have reared their heads…
…then the team at Cavalier Legal are still the peeps for you. Even if it’s just clearing the situation up for you and pointing you in the right direction with their A-grade advice, you know that you’ll be getting the information you need to enter the situation with one foot forward.
Give them a buzz on 8470 0120 or pop into that beautiful New York warehouse-style office on Pulteney Street that we mentioned… it’s divine!
