Choosing a new solicitor for anything can be a real tough job but when the stakes are so high whether it be financial investment or the factors involved, it can put extra pressure on you when you are making your decision. Doing a simple Google search for property settlement lawyer in Sydney comes back with thousands of results which can be very overwhelming if you don’t know what to look for. Thankfully, if you are unsure, just get in touch with O’Sullivan Legal, as they have plenty of experience in the field and can help you through the process.

If this situation sounds all too familiar you don’t have to stress any longer as we will be talking about what things you should be look for when you are choosing a property settlement lawyer in Sydney.


One of it not the most important factor that your solicitor should have is relevant experience. While your property settlement lawyer in Sydney should have a degree and be registered without question they should have also been practicing in this particular field as well. Law is a very broad industry where individuals will spend their entire careers studying and practicing one specific stream. Make sure the lawyer in Sydney you go with has experience with property settlement.

It’s no benefit to you if you have someone who is a family law expert. You need someone who knows the ins and outs of the proceedings you will undergo to ensure that the procedure runs smoothly.

Communication skills

A very important factor that you need to look out for on your hunt for a property settlement lawyer in Sydney is someone with excellent communication skills. Someone may be the best solicitor that you have ever seen but if they can’t translate that into words to discuss with you, then chances are they will also struggle with a judge a jury. While speaking to the individuals in a court of law is a given, it is also important that they are able to communicate effectively with you.

You should be looking for someone that is able to speak with you in a jargon free manner so that you are aware what is going on with your case during every point of its operation. If you don’t look for this quality before you make your final decision you could be left in the dark regarding your case leaving you feeling upset and frustrated.

Ability to think outside the box

It is very rare that every law case follows the same procedure. While certain strategies work for certain type of cases that doesn’t mean that it is simply a one case fits all kind of deal. With that in mind you should be looking for a property settlement lawyer in Sydney that has the capability to think creatively to come up with innovative solutions to problems that may arise. If they aren’t tailoring their services for you and are simply following a procedure, your entire case could derail if they run into any kind of problem along the way.

A lot of firms will offer free consultation periods that allow you to talk to the solicitor and ask them questions about their practice. This time is as much an opportunity for them to get to know you as it is for you. You need to be asking questions during this period and focusing them around previous cases and any hardships in the past will allow you to determine if they are able to think creatively. Try asking the following questions to get a good sense.

  • Have you dealt with cases like mine before?

  • What strategy did you take?

  • What was the final result?

  • Did anything go wrong?

  • What would you do differently in the future?
