If you have any additional support needs as a results of a disability, medical condition, or specific learning difficulty, we will try to provide you with whatever assistance you require during your visit to our office.

We can also arrange for a ramp to be placed outside our office to allow wheelchair access, just let us know when you intend on calling in.

We are also happy to arrange for one of our staff to visit you at your home, if required.

You will need to bring photographic evidence of your identity (such as a valid Passport or current Drivers Licence) and two pieces of correspondence confirming your home address (such as a bank statement or utility bill, both of which must not be more than 3 months old).  All documentation must be the original as copies will not be acceptable.

    I have used North Ainley for a number of years. They have successfully dealt with my parent's wills and more recently the sale of 2 properties. The staff are exceptional and imparticular Cassie who took care of the whole process from start to finish whilst I was overseas. She diligently chased all third parties and kept me informed at all times. I would recommend North Ainley as they have proved themselves time and again over the last 10 years in all of my family's legal affairs.read more
