Experienced Legal Professionals

Delivering exceptional service

TWC Lawyers brings together lawyers Tam Elabbasi and Wes Day, and it’s not because of the similarities between their practice areas.

Tam and Wes share something more important: an outlook on how clients should be treated by their lawyers.

That means TWC Lawyers is going to give you:

  • Awesome service from skilful lawyers;
  • Real advice that isn’t sugar-coated or in legalese;
  • Fixed fees.

You don’t find that combination just anywhere. Below you’re going to find out why.

You’ll have trouble surprising Tam with anything.

With a history that spans banking, sales, business finance, and being a business owner for many years, Tam has real world experience that makes him significantly more human than many lawyers you’re going to meet (some of whom moved into a law office shortly after they were weaned).

When he decided that a legal career was the path for him, he immediately jumped into the world of criminal and traffic law.

Not surprisingly, clients responded to his easy manner and approachable expertise. He quickly built a busy practice as a sought after professional in criminal law and traffic law.

He now helps clients in a range of criminal and traffic matters, delivering positive results in difficult situations. He’ll help you understand how the system works, what you can realistically expect, and your legal rights at every step of the way.

If the police are involved, then Tam’s the guy you want to speak to – before you speak to them!

Many commercial lawyers want to tell you that they “understand your business” but, in truth, haven’t ever been in business for themselves. So how could they possibly understand your business?

Wes is the exception.

For more than 10 years Wes managed a successful business in road and sea freight logistics, waste management and civil construction. He still runs a business which helps business owners grow their operations and build their franchise network.

So when Wes is reading your documents, or advising your business, he’s not just doing it with his legal abilities – he’s doing it with decades of experience as a business owner himself.

With his business and legal experience he knows which issues matter, and which issues don’t. He understands your key concerns and needs as a business owner.

And in truth, ask yourself what you really want. A lawyer to tell you the law, or a lawyer to help you succeed?

If business success is the answer, then Wes Day is the right lawyer for it.

Through this role Chrissy was able to empower women with the knowledge and skill to make informed decisions about their finances and set themselves up for a positive and secure future. It is with this same focus on self-determination and building a roadmap for a positive future that Chrissy approaches her work as a family lawyer.

Having been through a separation and the family court system herself, Chrissy has first-hand experience of what clients are going through.
