Welcome to Devonport Law

In an increasingly globalised & impersonal world Devonport Law is a small, independent local law practice committed to working with its clients to make a difference to their lives.

Devonport Law combines the experience and expertise built over years of legal practice with compassion and understanding to focus on client-centred solutions to all issues, either personal or business-related, that require the support of a lawyer.

We will work with you to facilitate and support any of the following: making a will, selling or buying a new property, resolving personal, commercial and financial issues, settling claims or dealing with transactions of any type.

The services we provide are centred on our clients and their needs.

Our primary concern is that together we find solutions that are satisfying and of value.
