How long does it take?

Your first consultation with Amanda will take place within 5 business days of Amanda receiving your payment and booking request.
You can ask Amanda to complete her work for you over a short period of time (one or two days, subject to Amanda’s availability and recommendations), or call on Amanda’s time as and when it suits you. It’s entirely up to you

What about the bill?

An invoice will be issued at the conclusion of the service. Where the work takes longer than one month, interim invoices will be issued at the end of each month

Your money is trust money

The amount you pay now goes directly to Amanda’s trust account, established and operated according to the Legal Profession Uniform Law (NSW). This means Amanda cannot use your money to pay her legal fees until she has sent you an invoice. When you get that invoice, if you don’t feel you’ve got what you paid for, let Amanda know and she will do everything possible to resolve your concerns. She’s a lawyer, that’s her professional standard, and her duty to her client.

Are you an owners corporation or strata committee?

If you are an owners corporation or strata committee, you can certainly use this method of engaging Amanda. The strata committee can engage Amanda for option 1 and 2 only. You will need a general meeting to approve any legal services exceeding a cost of $3,000, unless the matter is urgent. Please contact Amanda directly on amanda@yourstrataproperty.com.au to discuss your needs in respect of urgent matters.
