Growing firm brings a fresh take on legal services

Paula Lines bought The Law Shop just over 10 years ago, with a vision to build a law firm with a difference. She wanted to provide expert legal support without confusing jargon, and at a fair price. The Law Shop has grown fast since those early days, the business now has three partners and two locations, but one thing stayed the same; the ambition to provide the best advice and service.

Stephanie Northey joined Paula in the business in 2014, and Sarsha Tyrrell became a director in April 2017 when The Law Shop opened its Tauranga office. The three directors work well together, and with their growing team of legal experts, they enjoy going the extra mile for their clients.  

Paula’s expertise includes the formation of and administration of trusts, commercial and business law, subdivisions, relationship property agreements and general law. Stephanie, who runs the Rotorua office, specialises in family law and has recently been appointed as Lawyer for Child. Sarsha is an expert at helping families with legal issues including domestic violence, child care arrangements and Child Youth & Family matters, now called Oranga Tamariki—Ministry for Children.

As a team, they take pride in offering individuals and businesses personable advice and service, and they make sure to take people’s whole life circumstances into account. The way they work at The Law Shop is down to earth, and they genuinely care about achieving the best results possible for their clients. They aim to take the stress out of any situation, whatever it may be.    

“I’d like to say that we are everyday lawyers for everyday people and we enjoy bringing a fresh, no-nonsense approach to legal services. We’re fast becoming the preferred solicitors for businesses, families and retirees in the Bay of Plenty, and we’re committed to staying at the top of our game to make sure that our clients receive accurate and up-to-date legal advice,” Paula says.

“Relaxed professionalism is the norm here. We’re proud of how far we have come, and we’re pleased that the business is still growing. It’s an absolute privilege to help people and local businesses with all sorts of legal matters,” she says.

The Law Shop team is big on communicating clearly, and they will go through all details with you in normal English. Contact via email, Skype or Facebook messenger is most welcome, and you can count on it that they will give you expert advice that fits you and your unique situation.
