A local Sydney law firm that takes the time to understand your needs
Jeffrey Choy, founder
The team at JCL Legal incorporates over 60 years of legal, migration and small business experience.
At JCL legal we have represented clients in all manner of situations both large and small. Whilst our primary emphasis is on litigation where we have conducted matters from the highest court in the land, the High Court of Australia to local court, tribunals and mediations. The extensive experience of our team includes the buying and selling of real estate, the buying and selling of businesses along with over 20 years experience in handling migration matters for individuals and businesses. We pride ourselves that the majority of our clients come to us as a result of recommendation.
We believe one of the things that really sets us aside is that we take the time to listen. We want to know your story, we want to know how you wish to resolve your concern and how resolution fits into your full life circumstance. Only after we have heard and ensured that we understand you completely will we make any comment or provide any advice. The law is complex and difficult to understand so we make sure we take the time to make sure you thoroughly understand and then how we will work with our knowledge of the law to obtain the best possible result.
Our team uses, alongside an extensive knowledge of the law, firsthand business, mediation and personal growth experience to determine the best way forward. Our prime concern is always to obtain the best possible result and preferably without resorting to litigation. Whilst litigation can be very effective, it is giving a judge who neither knows you or your personal situation to make a decision only on the evidence that he or she is given. This is the primary reason our team has a broad experience and knowledge, to inform you of the most suitable range of solutions.
