Peter Fisher Lawyers: Here at every step of your life

At some point, most people will need to seek a lawyer’s advice. This is often done at a time of financial, personal or emotional crisis due to an accident, divorce or death.

Unfortunately, that’s usually not the best time to make such an important decision about finding someone who will play a significant role at the critical moments of your life.

Many people expect that they’ll only need to hire a lawyer for a one-time event. They fear lawyers are expensive or they don’t feel any great urgency to settle their affairs, and so they put off creating a will, or setting up an estate plan . . . and sometimes, it’s too late.  They also don’t think about the importance of the need for other documents like loan agreements.

Wouldn’t it be better to find the right person to assist you before there’s a crisis?

History

Peter Fisher Lawyers was established by Peter Fisher in 1992 at Hove, SA. Having a clear understanding of the aging society and that people have a need for Wills and help to administer Estates, his practice was mindfully located in the “oldest” council region in South Australia, including Brighton, Glenelg, Somerton Park, Hallett Cove and Marino.

In 2011, Peter Earl joined the firm and shortly after this, a second Peter Fisher Lawyers office was opened at Woodside in the Adelaide Hills, not far from Mount Barker, Oakbank, and Balhannah in the South and Lobethal, Mount Torrens, Birdwood, Mount Pleasant and Gumeracha in the North. Services were also expanded to include Family Law.

In 2013, Peter Fisher and Peter Earl became partners of the firm.

In 2015, Peter Fisher Lawyers expanded its services further to the Southern Vales and Fleurieu Peninsula and are able to see clients at McLaren Vale. This is in close proximity to Aldinga, Moana, Willunga, Victor Harbor, McLaren Flat, Kangarilla and Meadows.

In August 2018, after a lengthy period of illness, unfortunately, Peter Fisher passed away. Peter Earl became the sole partner of Peter Fisher Lawyers and he, along with the team of support staff and legal practitioners at Peter Fisher Lawyers continue to provide quality Estate Planning, Estate Administration and Family Law services throughout the Adelaide Hills, Southern Suburbs, Fleurieu Peninsula and Murraylands. In February 2020, Peter Fisher Lawyers introduced Conveyancing to their mix of services.
