Morton and Morton Solicitors is one of the longest established law firms in Queensland. Our firm commenced in Maryborough, on the Fraser Coast, in 1874. For over 135 years we have been giving our clients peace of mind by protecting their interests, no matter what type of legal issues they have.
We have a longstanding reputation for maintaining the traditional values of the legal profession - integrity, honesty, dedication to our clients cause. Now we combine those traditional values with the latest work systems and technology to provide the best legal services we can to our clients in a cost effective way.
Some of our clients have utilised our services for many years. Some are even the second or third generation of their family to have used our firm as their "family" solicitors.
Other clients are new to the Fraser Coast and are looking to establish a close, long lasting relationship with lawyers they can trust and rely on.
Other clients live in distant parts of Queensland, or even interstate, but use our firm because of our reputation for providing peace of mind to our clients through quality legal representation.
All of our clients are important to us and get peace of mind from knowing that we are protecting their interests.
We have many commercial clients and help them with a wide range of commercial issues, including:
- Buying and selling business
- Drafting different types of agreements
- Partnership agreements
- Setting up discretionary, family and unit trusts
- Setting up companies
- Commercial litigation
The ranges of issues facing businesses today are many and varied. Our experienced solicitors can help to ensure that all of your arrangements are properly documented so that your interests are protected. A properly drawn document at the start often avoids unnecessary complications later.
Buying or selling real estate is a major investment. Our clients know this and get the best advice and assistance from our experienced team of conveyancing staff and solicitors. No matter what type of conveyancing you are involved in we can help you.
We can help with:
- Apartments and units
- Commercial property
- Retirement homes
Often solicitors receive the contract after it has already been signed. This can create problems down the track because sometimes clients don't fully understand all of the terms and conditions they have signed up for. We can check your contract for you before you sign. And this doesn't cost any extra.
Wills, Estates and Powers of Attorney
Making a Will is one of the most important things anybody does. A well drafted Will helps make sure your assets end up where you want them to. It also significantly reduces the costs of administering your estate after you have gone.
Whether you are just starting your working life, are planning a new family, are looking at retirement or your personal circumstances have recently changed, we can help ensure your Will is properly drafted to reflect your wishes.
