Hello, my name is Robin and I own a medium sized business which is based in a suburb of Perth, Australia. Many business owners do not understand the importance of commercial law on their operations. I know that I certainly didn't when I set out. At first, this wasn't an issue but as my business grew, I realised that if I didn't teach myself about the legal rules in place and seek expert help, I would find myself in serious trouble. I got in touch with a great law firm who helped me to understand exactly what I needed to know. I decided to start this blog to help other business owners.

You might not realise this, but most people do need some type of estate plan. This is especially true if you own a home, have other types of assets, or have children. Unfortunately, if you don't have an estate plan, or at least a will, your estate could end up being divided in a way that's against your wishes.

If you are going through a divorce, you will need to think about how your combined assets and items of monetary value will be split up fairly. There is simply no way for you to do this on your own, as there will always be some conjecture on exactly what is 'fair', which is why you should use a family lawyer.

The process of buying a property can be lengthy and stressful. During this time, you will need the services of a real estate agent to help you find a suitable property. But before you finalise the land purchase process and sign the contracts, you will also need to have a conveyancing lawyer handle the legal bit of it. A conveyancer will assist you in transferring the legal title from the seller to you.

An accident can be a traumatic occurrence. Depending on the impact of the accident, you might have to spend weeks or months in the hospital, rehabilitation, and therapy. Some people will also experience difficulties coping with post-traumatic stress disorder and other emotional health issues that result from the accident. An accident disrupts your life and interferes with your ability and capacity to work or lead a normal life. Medical bills and other expenses may also drain you financially.
