A 30 minute call with a lawyer
Strategy Session- $330
A 1 hour face to face meeting with a lawyer.
If you have found yourself late-night Googling “lawyers near me”. Or asking a trusted friend or Facebook group if they know of a lawyer, the good news is you have landed in the right spot.
Coastal Lawyers are heart centred and solution focussed lawyers located on the sunny Central Coast.
What does this mean?
Well, we do things a bit differently. We not only provide you with the legal advice you expect from a lawyer, but we also provide you the emotional support you may not expect. We offer a holistic legal service, because the emotional support during times of transition is just as important as the legal support and advice.
Founded by a former prosecutor and former police officer, with over 20 years combined experience, we are trauma informed lawyers who focus on all areas of criminal law and family law (and everything in between).
Our principal and founder Kristal has a Masters in Family Law and is a collaboratively trained family lawyer with a passion for resolving family law matters outside of court by way of negotiation, legally assisted mediation, and collaborative practice.
We offer face to face appointments at our boutique offices at Gosford, as well as video and telephone call appointments. Clients have described our offices more like going to a trusted friends home. Our offices are comfortable, calming and we always have lots of snacks.
You can book an appointment online with a click of a button. So, let’s get started!

A little bit about us?
People generally don’t come to lawyers for criminal law and family law advice in celebration. (That’s okay we don’t take it personally).
But talking to a lawyer doesn’t need to be overwhelming or scary. We just happen to know a lot about a particular topic, in this case the law and how it effects you.
At Coastal Lawyers, we give our client’s frank and practical legal advice. We are human’s, parents and spouses too. We bring our life experience to our role as legal advisers and advocates.
We offer a judgement free and confidential space where you can discuss your legal problems, have your legal questions answered and make informed decisions about your unique situation.
Our clients are busy people who are often juggling work and families. This is why we use technology to make the process of getting legal advice simple and convenient.
We use phone and video calls to regularly keep our clients updated. As well as face to face appointments at our Gosford offices when required.
We also use the latest legal technology including online bookings and payment options. Email and text messages to remind clients about their upcoming appointments and court dates. As well as a secure client portal so clients can conveniently view court documents and correspondence.
Reaching out to a lawyer can be overwhelming but early legal advice is often crucial to the success of your matter.
Areas of Law
We are empathetic family lawyers whose main focus is ensuring that children are not caught up in conflict and that parents can positively co-parent long after their separation.
We can guide you through all aspects of the often challenging family law process. From divorce through to negotiating property settlements and parenting arrangements.
We are experienced and confident advocates who have appeared before the Local Court, District Court and Supreme Courts of New South Wales.
If you have been charged by police with a criminal offence then early legal advice is often crucial to the success of your case.
If you have received an infringement notice, are worried about your licence or have been charged with a more serious traffic offence, we can provide you with legal advice and representation at court.
We offer fixed fees for all traffic law matters.
worried about legal fees?
If you are concerned about your ability to pay your legal fees or interested in flexibly managing payment, you may have options. One option is obtaining a loan from a family law funder such as JustFund. In certain circumstances, JustFund can provide a loan to pay your legal fees and these funds are repaid once your property settlement is complete. To find out whether this option is suitable to your situation and budget, further information can be obtained from our firm or at http://www.justfund.com.au.
At Coastal Lawyers we pride ourselves on being transparent with our legal fees.
“You can google your way through or you can speak with an expert from the beginning. Early legal advice is crucial to the success of your case”
