MacDonald Law - Lawyers open 7 days a week

MacDonald Law prides itself in providing their clients with real solutions in plain English.

We endeavour to exceed in the following:-


Absolute client focus and commitment - we are a client focused firm, we strive for excellence in our service and seek to constantly exceed our client 's expectations.

Always proactive, never reactive - our proactive approach is to ensure the best possible outcome for our clients in a timely and cost effective manner.

Ethics without compromise - although we have a duty to comply with our client's instructions and to use our utmost skill and diligence in representing our clients, this duty is subject to our overriding duty to the court and the administration of Justice. Our role is to secure the best result possible for our client on the basis of the facts and the applicable law. By understanding our ethical obligations, it makes us better tacticians because an ethical lawyer will always approach a matter on a cost effective basis for clients whereas unethical lawyers increase their client's costs either because their focus is on their monetary rewards as opposed to their client or they act in a manner which hinders settlement.

Teamwork - We enjoy strong cohesion in a supportive working and social environment. We celebrate our successes, individual achievements and promotions. Furthermore, our team encompasses not only employees within the firm but our strategic partners. We seek to utilise and form relationships with the best professional advisers in the community who also assist in serving our clients (valuers, accountants, other solicitors, barristers, financial planners etc).

Recruit and retain the best - we aim to attract the best talented prospective employees to our firm and to retain and develop our talented staff. We actively ensure our staff maintains superior technical skills and knowledge of the law.

Continuously improve and grow - we have a commitment to grow the business and to assist in the growth and development of our individual staff.

Give back to the community - Helen Keller said "true happiness is not obtained through self gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose". As a business we create jobs and provide services but in addition we believe it is important that we give back to the community. We have a commitment to raise funds for certain charities and we encourage our staff to be involved in volunteer activities that support the community.
