McKeown Legal operates in four areas of law only:
- Criminal Law
- Traffic Law (a subgroup of criminal law)
- Family Law
- AVO Matters
- Wills, Probate & Estate Planning
We don't act in other areas of law so that we can do what we specialises in very well. If you need assistance in one or more of these areas we can help you.
McKeown Legal acts in all criminal law, traffic law and AVO matters in all courts across New South Wales. We have over 16 years of experience in these three jurisdictions and are able to help you with your matter whatever it may involve.
McKeown Legal undertakes Family Law work and has specialised in the area for the past 6 years. This area of law is unfortunately often closely tied to other areas within our specialisation and we are able to give advice to avoid or get out of the pitfalls of these types of "crossovers". If you need assistance rest assured that your lawyer will be understanding, honest and frank in any advice given to you regarding the course you should take with your matter.
We have a number of offices throughout Sydney enabling us to service you no matter where you may live. So if you need us we are never far away.
We are passionate about helping people solve their problems with the least amount of stress and impact possible. If you want a firm with these values please call us on 02 9421 3900.
