If you asked what qualities you should look for when determining the best Adelaide lawyers, I guess the logical and likely response would include: -

  • A high degree of legal knowledge relevant to your legal issue
  • Logical thinking and the ability to provide sound advice
  • Ability to present a logical and persuasive argument in your defense
  • Attention to the details of your case

However, from our conversations with clients it is clear that although these are the first thoughts when asked this question..... these skills are clearly not enough.

Personal professional relationship with your lawyer

Working with your lawyer is often one of the most personal relationships you can have with a professional. It requires absolute trust and confidence that your lawyer will work with you, listen to your concerns and respect the sensitive information provided to them. An appointment with a lawyer will also mean that sound and direct advice is required which might not always be easy to hear or accept.

The best Adelaide lawyer for you will most likely be the professional that provides the skills mentioned earlier but added to this - empathy, personal connection and respect. Very few of us are happy revealing our personal information to someone that is detached, perhaps perceived arrogant and without concern for our personal outcomes.

Elements of the best lawyers

Our lawyers at Williams know when it is important to take control of the processes and to lead you through the difficult times

The Best Lawyers will stand with you:

This means that we will take the time to understand your perspective and work with you to achieve the best outcomes for you. This also means you will receive clear and honest advice, hard facts and sometime difficult options so that you can understand the implications and make informed decisions.
