About Us

At Simply Law we provide a wide range of legal services. We are particularly keen to provide a friendly and helpful service without using all the legal jargon.

From Greerton Law to Simply Law.  We have changed our firm name for many reasons.  Initially Greerton Law was set up to provide legal services to residents in and around Greerton.  We have grown quickly and it became apparent that our services were being sought by clients outside of the area.  The name Simply Law will take us through technology changes where more legal services will be offered on line in the future.  Importantly, the name is representative of our desire to provide straight forward advice and pricing.

We like our clients being able to call to discuss matters without worrying that they won’t be able to understand the legal issues or that they may not be asking the right questions.

All of our staff have high skill sets in their niche areas of law but the difference is we are personable. You will be able to have a real discussion about your situation and the law.

We welcome any queries you may have and of course we offer a free 10 minute no obligation discussion so you can decide if you would like to use our services. Just contact us by email or phone.
