What is a Coastal Lawyers Discovery Call?- $220

A discovery call is a 30 minute telephone call with a lawyer from Coastal Lawyers to discuss your legal problem.

It is a virtual meet and greet if you like. It is an opportunity for you to obtain our preliminary views about the process and of course the costs involved if you wish to engage our services further. We will answer those pressing questions you have. 

We recommend that all potential client’s book in a discovery call first. 

The lawyer client relationship is one built on trust and mutual understanding of our roles and responsibilities, so it is important that you build a good working relationship with your lawyer. Our discovery call is the first step to getting to know each other and understanding the legal problem you are facing.

Our discovery call is usually followed by a Strategy Session, which is a 1 hour meeting either face to face in our offices at Gosford, or via video call where we map out a strategy for your legal problem. 

How much does a call cost?

Our discovery calls are $220 for a 30 minute call with an experienced lawyer. 

Our calls are an opportunity for us to get to know each other. There is absolutely no obligation to proceed past that call. 

If you do wish to continue with our services after that, we will usually book you in for a Strategy Session which is $330. Any costs after that are always fully discussed and outlined in our Cost Agreement and retainer before proceeding further. We offer fixed fees for all criminal law and traffic law matters and cost certainty for family law matters. 

How can I pay? 

You can pay via credit card or direct deposit into our solicitors trust account. Full payment is required 24 hours before your scheduled call. 


 How do I book a call?

You can book a discovery call online on a date and time that suits.

Simply, choose the option which best suits your current situation.

If you need an urgent appointment, then give our offices a call on 1300 271 289 or email us at and we will do our best to fit you in urgently.

A little bit about us?

Coastal Lawyers Central Coast Lawyers

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.

Early legal advice is often crucial to the success of your matter.  

Areas of Law

Criminal Law

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. 

Coastal Lawyers undertake Legal Aid work for eligible clients. 

Traffic Law

We understand that losing your licence can have a huge impact on families.

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. 

Family 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 offer deferred fees for eligible family law clients.

Training Wheels

During lockdown, my husband and I had the privilege of teaching our eldest son how to ride a bike without training wheels.

It really got me thinking about how learning new things is hard.
