Who We Are

For the dedicated lawyers at Haynes Robinson, integrity is the pillar of our organisation. Since 1889 we have operated according to the same core principles of efficiency, cost-effectiveness and common sense. Where possible, we avoid arguing technicalities, or engaging in long drawn-out legal battles that only profit the legal profession. Instead, we help our clients find the quickest way home.

Law can be a ‘black art’, in which some practitioners hide behind the mysteries of legal conventions and terminology. At Haynes Robinson, we break legalities down into everyday language and concepts, so you can make an informed decision on how to proceed wisely, with minimum expense. We understand relationships are built on trust, and we invest in your satisfaction and your security. You’ll find all our staff approachable, professional and helpful.

Haynes Robinson has thrived for over a hundred years, during which many legal firms have come and gone, because we are cost-effective – we get the job done at the lowest possible cost to you. Don’t be deceived by firms that quote low hourly rates. If they take longer to resolve your issue – assuming they do resolve it to your satisfaction – it could end up costing you more. At Haynes Robinson you’ll find the expertise and quality service you desire and deserve.

With good judgment and the insight that comes from many years experience in the serious practice of law, we can help you solve your problems faster. And because we’re focussed on the best outcome for you, rather than increasing our profits by engaging in protracted legal processes, you’ll end up paying less and getting a better result than if you’d gone elsewhere. That is our guarantee.

Because your best interests are ours, we are passionate about providing effective dispute resolution services. We’ll do our best to help you resolve personal and business matters before they need to go to court. However, sometimes court is unavoidable. At this point, our seasoned litigators are at your service and will work with you for the best outcome possible.
