Brisbane Legal new legal blog

by Leon Bertrand


Dear Sandpit readers,

I have a new blog, which focuses on the law and related issues. It is intended to appeal to lawyers and non-lawyers alike.

The blog will comment on practical issues which will inform people of what to expect and how to deal with lawyers, the courts etc. Already I have a post about how you can help your own legal case.  I will post about topics such as why legal fees are so high and how you can reduce your legal fees in the coming weeks.

The blog will also comment about various legal issues. Already it has posted about the law of negligence, disciplinary proceedings against lawyers and criminal law. Having practiced in a number of areas, I have a reasonably broad knowledge of the various areas of law.

So please check it out and feel free to comment. Any feedback, positive or negative, would be appreciated.

I would also like to thank Ray for some advice on the technical aspects of wordpress.

    I’ll take that as a compliment Richard 🙂

    Good luck, Leon. Good to see you back on the Internet. There are not enough lawyers writing good blogs today …. oh, wait – there was one. What happened to him?

    An elderly pensioner on being sentenced to fifteen years penal servitude cried ‘Ah my Lord I’m a very old man and I’ll never do that that sentence’ The judge replied, ‘well try to do as much as you can’. Lord Justice Holmes (1840-1916)
