About Us

Culley & McAlpine is one of the leading solicitor firms in Perth. We have established an excellent reputation for high quality legal work at a reasonable cost. A high percentage of our work drives from referrals.

We take great pride on providing an approachable professional service. We take a dynamic approach to our work using the expertise of the firm to ensure a complete service for all. Our clients find a real benefit from being able to come to a firm they trust to deal with the different legal problems that they may have.

We have both private paying clients and legal aid clients.  We will always assess your entitlement to legal aid. Legal aid is offered for Family Law, Criminal Court work, Wills, Power of Attorney, Mental Health Tribunals and may cover other civil matters.

We offer a free 15-minute consultation. This is a great opportunity for clients to find out if their problem requires a solicitor and for us to advise on the best way to proceed and if you may be entitled to Legal Aid for the work. This gives our clients an opportunity to ask questions that they may be concerned about but not know if there is a legal issue or not.
