Throughout your life, there will be times when you will need legal assistance, advice or representation. Stacks Law Firm provides legal services across all life stages – such as assisting with buying, selling or renting your home; dealing with problems you may be encountering at work; and providing advice and legal representation if you have had the misfortune to be involved in an accident or a crime.
Regardless of the area of your life where you need assistance – be it relationships, your home, estate planning, employment, property transactions, criminal charges or personal injury - our aim is to help you.
We will ensure that you are well informed about the progress of your matter and know all the available options. We work to resolve proceedings in an efficient manner while achieving the best possible outcome for you.
We appreciate that it is important for you to be involved in decisions about your case and actively encourage you to work with us to achieve these outcomes. Legal processes can often be complex, so we provide plain English advice that is easily understood.
Our lawyers will work with you to ensure that you, your loved ones and your assets are protected. Our clients come to us because they know we have a highly experienced team that provides astute legal advice with efficiency and empathy, at cost-effective rates. Our lawyers have the expertise and knowledge to work with you, whatever stage you are at in life.
Your home is an important asset. Choosing to buy, sell or rent a property can be one of the most important decisions you make in your life, but it can also be stressful and expensive to navigate the process.
Our firm has a highly experienced legal property team whose work goes beyond conveyancing. Instead we offer the full spectrum of property and legal services. This means we have the capability to provide legal advice, expertise and protection in the event of a dispute with vendors (sellers), purchasers (buyers) or tenants.
The vast experience we have in handling all types of property sales ensures we can explain every step of the way in plain English and keep you in the loop throughout the process. In addition, our fees are no more expensive than most conveyancing-only firms, but you receive the added benefit of legal expertise.
The property team at Stacks can assist you with legal advice covering all areas of property transactions.
Encountering difficulties at work can take a big toll on you, your confidence and your life. If you are experiencing unfair treatment in the workplace, you should seek legal advice immediately to understand and enforce your rights. Stacks has employment law experts with a thorough knowledge of the complex state and federal employment laws which exist in Australia. We will provide quick and accurate advice and ensure that you receive all entitlements or compensation that you are due.
It is particularly important to seek assistance early for workplace matters, as there are often very strict time limits for making a claim. If you do not action a claim in the time period specified, you may not be able to take the matter further. Our employment lawyers can discuss any workplace problems you have encountered with you to see if you have a case for a claim.
Unfortunately, legal difficulties can arise from a relationship breakdown, a family member’s death or changed circumstances regarding care of your children. If you find yourself in such a situation, our expert lawyers can help you navigate the family law process with sensitivity, empathy and a focus on resolving matters amicably wherever possible.
We will help you through all aspects of family law with the utmost respect, confidentiality, sensitivity, compassion and professionalism towards your personal and private matters. We see going to court as a last resort.

Growing and protecting your wealth
Wealth protection planning is a process where the assets that make up a person’s wealth - be they personal assets, business assets or other investments - are organised so as to be protected from risk. When you have worked hard to build your wealth and accumulate assets, it is imperative that you have the right legal structures in place to grow your wealth further and safeguard it, for yourself and for your future generations.
Stacks Law Firm can provide advice about secure and sound legal structures to help grow and protect your wealth, as well as minimising any negative repercussions in the case of credit problems.
Life doesn’t always go smoothly. Unfortunately, there may be times when you encounter difficulties in which you will require legal assistance – for example, should you or a loved one be involved in an accident, a dispute, or be accused of a crime.
Facing a personal legal challenge can be scary and filled with uncertainty. Our lawyers will work with you to solve any challenge that arises as quickly and amicably as possible, to minimise the disruption to your life, finances and livelihood that disputes or legal proceedings can bring.
As you age and move into the retirement phase of your life, there can be many legal challenges that affect you. Ensuring you have a plan that creates a framework for important aspects of your life, such as your living arrangements, health decisions, estate planning and financial matters is highly recommended to ensure that you and your loved ones are secure and protected in the future.
The lawyers at Stacks can provide legal assistance and advice concerning your future to enable you to enjoy your later years in comfort and with total peace of mind. We can also work with you to resolve any legal disputes that may arise, including matters to do with superannuation and age discrimination.
