Brian Deegan Lawyers
Brian Deegan Lawyers is the boutique legal practice delivering a generational change in law that brings comprehensive experience with it. Our practitioners reflect experience and knowledge as well as youthful enthusiasm. We each specialise in different areas of law including Criminal, Divorce and Family Law, Property Law and Conveyancing, Commercial Law and Wills, Estate and Probate.
Whatever conviction you may be facing, you need the right lawyer acting for you, who knows the complexities of the legal system. And you need to act fast. We‘re that Criminal Lawyer.
We break down the law and build a strong case for you.
It doesn’t matter if it was ‘mutual’ or totally unexpected, the last thing you both want is a drawn out, emotionally draining divorce. With discretion and compassion, we’ll guide you through the process of separation and prepare your divorce application so you can move on — without the unnecessary stress or delay.
Children’s Living Arrangements
You can place a certain value on property. But you can’t put a price on the welfare of your children at a time when protecting them means everything. Our mission as experienced family lawyers is to minimise the disruption, delay and emotional stress that often goes hand in hand with disputes over living arrangements.
Through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution, we ensure you first consider the most cost effective — and often fastest — course of action when the heightened emotions of a relationship breakdown are telling you to ‘take it to court’.
Buying, selling, negotiating, contracting, conveyancing, leasing, settling and resolving disputes; for a game with so many perspectives, our approach is pretty simple: let’s get it done, the right way. Fast.
Our services include:
• Preparation of contracts for sale or purchase of land
• Contract review before signing
• Form 1 – Vendor’s Statement
• Property settlements and negotiations
• Commercial/retail leases
Disputes with Neighbours
Disputes between neighbours can have a serious effect on everyday life, after all, it is your home we are talking about. It is important to bear in mind that there are laws and regulations in place which dictate what you and your neighbours can and cannot do.
Common issues which arise relate to fences and trees, noise, pets and injuries on your property.
When a dispute arises, it is usually best to try to resolve the same by way of discussion, negotiation and/or mediation. These processes tend to be easier, quicker and are cheaper than initiating proceedings in court.
Building and Construction Disputes
As a holder of a South Australian Builder’s Licence since 1980, Brian has a vast array of industry specific knowledge when it comes to building and construction.
We are able to provide realistic advice from a practical and legal point of view to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
COMMERCIAL LAW SERVICES
Our services include:
• Debt Recovery
• Claims in the Magistrates, District and Supreme Courts, Federal Court
• Contractual agreements
• Property leading and acquisition
• Business contracts
• Dispute resolution
We understand that your business is your livelihood. When a debt remains outstanding that affects you and your family. We will see a matter through from start to finish ensuring that all monies recoverable are returned to you.
WILLS & ESTATES
Creating your own Will is fraught with danger. We’ll carefully draft a Will that’s valid in the eyes of the law — so you can minimise the chance of any claim against it and ensure your loved ones, interests and assets are protected, well after you pass.
Power of Attorney (POA)
Whether you’re going away and need someone to manage your financial affairs on your behalf, or you want to know that the right decisions will be left to the right person when you can’t make them for yourself; we’ll help you choose and prepare the right POA for your specific needs.
Advanced Care Directives
You can’t predict the state of your health. But you can decide how you’d like to be treated when you can’t make decisions for yourself. With an Advanced Care Directive (ACD), we can ensure your wishes are granted — and legally enforced — should you be affected by severe illness/injury.
Our Barossa office is located at Shop 5 / 7 Gawler St Nuriootpa.
