Our Nine Promises to Clients

Client Service Differences

  1. We will fit in with your schedule, so that you don’t need to take time off work

– Whether you need to juggle us around children or work, we can be available after hours if needed, at no extra cost.  We also do all appointments possible by phone or video meetings, saving travelling time as well.

  1. We will communicate with you in plain English, always

– Yes, even our costs agreements are in plain English!  We don’t hide fees in legal jargon, and we make sure we give you legal advice you can understand, always.

  1. We don’t just care about you as a client, we also care about you as a person

– We understand that people don’t usually need lawyers at happy times in their lives.  To support you as much as possible, we also have a referral list for further, non-legal help to suit your individual needs.

  1. Each client benefits from the personal attention of the Principal of our firm

– Our boss is hands-on with all clients that engage our firm, so you can be assured that your work will always be undertaken or directly overseen by the Principal.

Fee Differences

  1. We leverage the latest in technology to streamline our work and save your money

– Streamlining our work processes by leveraging technology means less time input from us, and more costs savings for you!

  1. You pay only for what you need, not for what you don’t need!

– We promise to encourage you to attempt settlement of all issues early and will only advise you to go to court as a last resort.  We will never pressure you to engage our firm to represent you – it’s fine if you want to represent yourself and just need our assistance to prepare documents or explain the court processes.

  1. We offer fixed fees for almost all services so that you know our costs upfront

– We understand that seeing a lawyer isn’t usually something clients have budgeted for.  So we have available interest free* payment plans to fit in with your budget and reduce financial stress.

  1. We keep our overheads low so we can pass on costs savings to clients

– Clients benefit from our reduced overheads over bricks and mortar law firms, making our services more accessible.

  1. We publish our fee schedule (not many law firms do this!)

– We’re not afraid to publish our fees because we know we offer great pricing!

*payment plans are interest free provided that payments are received on time


KEA Legal ?

At KEA Legal we’re passionate about filling the gap – making legal services more affordable and accessible. We’re here for those who haven’t got access to tens of thousands of dollars, yet earn too much to qualify for Legal Aid funding. 

We keep our overheads low and use the latest in technology to streamline our workflow – less time for us means more costs savings for you! 

We not only stand by our costs structure and quality of legal services, we also offer a variety of payment arrangements – because we understand that needing a lawyer is not usually something people have budgeted for.

We’re here to help whether you’re facing separation, domestic violence, or just need help at deciphering things!

At KEA Legal we offer a range of services and can help you as much or as little as you need.


Separation or Divorce

Whether you’re thinking about separation, or already separated, you need legal advice on three important issues – safety, parenting arrangements, and property division.

Domestic & Family Violence

Are you experiencing behaviours that make you feel threatened, afraid, manipulated or controlled? Or have you been served with an Application for a Protection Order?

Financial Agreements

Whether you want a “prenup”, or to finalise a financial agreement following separation, we can advise you on the best course of action to ensure both parties are protected.

Work licences

If you’re about to lose your Qld drivers licence for drink/ drug driving or points, you may qualify for a work licence (sometimes called a “section 87” licence, a day licence, or a restricted licence).

Wills & Power of Attorneys

Make a Will if you become partnered or have children – update it if you separate or divorce.  A POA entrusts someone to make your financial/ personal decisions when you can’t.

What You Can Expect From

KEA Legal




Professional Services


Client Focus







I found Kay to be very professional and dedicated to get the best possible outcome for me. She is very caring and understanding and offers a very personalised service.

I thoroughly recommend KEA Legal.  You will be in good hands.


KEA Legal are professional yet empathetic & have a true understanding of issues surrounding DV, separation & property settlement, and the complexities of each case.  Kay provided positive guidance & reassurance along the way, and explained the legal process in a way that was easy to understand and deal with. I highly recommend KEA Legal.


KEA Legal is definitely not a typical law firm. 

Kay was amazingly helpful in my parenting and family law matters and went above and beyond. I can't rate Kay and KEA Legal highly enough!


I don’t know how I would’ve managed to get through our parenting situation without Kay being by my side every step of the way. She’s so knowledgeable and really thinks outside the box for practical solutions.  I highly recommend KEA Legal!


I can highly recommend Kay as a family lawyer!  My case included DV, parenting & property - she handled it all with ease.  Kay totally understood where I was coming from and made sure I understood the legal processes clearly.
