Types of lawyers

In Australia, the law is a large and sprawling thing, often connected to the Colonial past. No single lawyer can be an expert in all fields of law, so it makes sense that they would form practices with lawyers practicing in different areas, just as Ryan & Seton Lawyers have.

Understanding the types of specialists available to you can help you when you are searching for Central Coast lawyers.

Criminal lawyer

This is the type of lawyer that you need if you have been involved in crime. They can cover crimes ranging from murder, aggravated assault, drug trafficking and armed robbery or burglary all the way down to minor assaults and traffic offences. If you are in this situation, you need a specialist criminal lawyer.

Family lawyer

Anything which is connected with relationships, including parents, spouses and children, is the subject of family law. Lawyers in this specialisation will handle divorces, child custody disputes and property litigation,.

Corporate lawyer

It is not only single individuals who want to go to Court, sometimes businesses do, too. They can help companies with a number of issues, including mergers and company acquisitions, as well as the founding of a new business.

Estate lawyer

Connected to family law, the estate lawyer will deal with Wills, financial trusts and Probate. They can assist you if you need to draw up a Will, or if you need assistance with division of property after the death of a loved one. Ryan & Seton Lawyers offer specialists in this field.

Civil lawyer

A lawyer practicing in this area is likely to be used when their clients are suing people that they know, such as business associates or neighbours or family members, or if they need to otherwise respond to a civil lawsuit.

General practice

There are a few lawyers who do not specialise in a particular field, but can work as an advisor on a number of legal topics. If you have a simple case without any complications, then you should make use of this lawyer if you want basic advice on legal matters.
