“Over the past almost 30 years I have advised thousands of clients from all walks of life and I would like to share with you my own thoughts and observations about the work we do here at April King Legal.”
“No two families are the same and it’s important to us that we treat our clients as individuals with legal advice tailored to their personal needs and circumstances. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach at April King Legal.”
“Over the years I’ve witnessed an increase in divorce and second marriages, which can introduce step-families into the legal equation, and often children/grandchildren are the ones who lose out to step-siblings in the family inheritance line. This is something our Grandparent Wills – specifically designed to protect family inheritance – can help with.”
“Our friendly, professional team is happy to help in any way we can.”
“Perhaps you have been separated for a number of years and for whatever reason, have yet to formalise the end of the relationship. It may simply have been a matter of wishing to avoid legal fees or just not wanting to face the prospect of revisiting old issues. Again, we understand and are happy to talk you through the ways that we can help.”
“April King Legal strives to provide you with clear solutions in plain English. My team and I will help you navigate the various pitfalls and more common misunderstandings of family law and show you the best way to proceed.”
“I know how daunting a visit to a lawyer can be but I assure you that our friendly and professional team is happy to assist in any way we can.”
“A warm welcome awaits you and as a valued client you will be given my direct line and personal email address to contact me on should you have any issues or concerns following your meeting.”
“I look forward to working with you soon.”
Paul King, TEP
